Assemble an entourage of farmers, merchants, knights, and monks in Reiner Stockhausen’s masterpiece, “Orleans” from TMG. Seek to gain power and prestige in the French city of Orleans and the area of the Loire in medieval France. Through the construction of trading posts, engaging in mercantile expeditions, and balancing your progress in science with the faith and support of the church, you seek to gain dominance in the realm. To that end you’ll be assembling a following of craftsman, monks, boatman, bishops, knights and scholars. The player with the most points gained from trading stations, goods, citizens and coins wins.
Orleans is a unique game that combines worker assignment and “bag-building” as you gather more followers to draw from your bag and commit them to performing various actions.
