7 Turn 1 I. Upkeep phase John Mary Tom Feed armies Pay to the bank 1 Food/Infantry, 2 Food/Archer, 3 Food/Cavalry John has no armies, so nothing to feed Mary has no armies, so nothing to feed Tom has no armies, so nothing to feed Gather resources Player can do this simultaneously John is on level 3 on Production and level 2 on Military so his multipliers are Food 1x, Products 2x, Weapons 1x His provinces have together 0 Food, 1 Product and 1 Weapon symbols Mary is on level 2 on Production and level 2 on Military so hes multipliers are Food 1x, Products 1x, Weapons 1x Her provinces have together 0 Food, 1 Product and 1 Weapon symbols Tom is on level 2 on Production and level 3 on Military so his multipliers are Food 1x, Products 1x, Weapons 1x His provinces have together 0 Food, 1 Product and 1 Weapon symbols John will harvest 2 Products and 1 Weapon Mary will harvest 1 Product and 1 Weapon Tom will harvest 1 Product and 1 Weapon II. Trade phase Only players controlling a Trade Center may enter the Trade Phase so neither of the three player can trade this turn III. Development phase Player take their 1 st Action in order from lowest to highest number on the Country cards So Mary, then Tom and then John Mary builds an army (Infantry) She pays 1 Weapon and places the Infantry in Vlaanderen Tom upgrades Military technology placing one Development token on his Play-mat John builds an Infantry He pays 1 Weapon and places the Infantry in Dublin Players take their 2 nd Action in reversed order so, John first, followed by Tom and Mary John builds another Infantry paying 1 Weapon and he places it in Dublin Mary upgrades Production technology She places one Development token on her Play-mat Tom upgrades his Military technology again placing another Development token on his Play-mat on the Military path No one has reached an ability that allows extra Actions Players may upgrade one technology at the cost of another So, in order (Mary, Tom, John), they are allowed to move one Development token Mary chooses not to move any token Tom upgrades Military at the cost of Production John chooses not to move any token

13 Turn 2 John Mary Tom Move the turn token to the next position I. Upkeep phase Feed armies Mary and Tom have no armies, therefore nothing to feed John has 1 Infantry, this ‘eats’ 1 Food The next step is to gather the resources Remember, look at all symbol resources on the Province tokens and at multipliers on the Play-mat Mary gets 6 Products and 1 Weapon Tom gets 2 Weapons John gets 6 Products and 1 Weapon

14 Turn 2 John Mary Tom II. Trade phase Only Mary and John may enter the Trade phase, Tom does not control a Trade Center Mary opens a Trade Route with John and she also exchanges with the bank 6 Products for 1 Food No one else wants to trade anything, so the Trade phase is over

There are no end-of-turn actions (down-keep) to be completed, so the second turn is over

24 Turn 2 John Mary Tom The players, new at the game, forgot so far to award the Builder, Trader and Warrior tokens, each worth 3 Victory Points Nothing is lost, it can be done easily… John gets the Builder token, being the most developed on Production The Trader token will not be awarded as long as two or more players, in this case Mary and John, are tied for most advanced on Trade technology Tom gets the Warrior token because he is the most advanced on Military technology Let’s now count the Victory points of each player John – 14 VP, Mary – 10 VP, Tom – 11 VP Turn three will start next, but this is the end of our presentation
