The Builders: Middle Ages - Becoming the First Builder of the Kingdom is the dream of any foreman. To realize it, you'll have to combine good recruitment with wise choice of your construction sites, as the buildings you construct will earn your renown, but also the money needed to hire more competent workers, who themselves will be better able to build more prestigious monuments, such as a cathedral, the masterpiece of a lifetime!
In The Builders: Middle Ages, the cards represent buildings and workers. Players score victory points and gain money by completing the construction of buildings. While recruiting workers is free, putting a worker to work on a construction site costs money.?
Each building has four requirements (stone, wood, knowledge, and tile) rated between 0 and 5, and the workers have the corresponding skills valued in the same range. To complete a construction, the player must add enough workers to cover the four requirements of the building.
Each player starts the game with 10 ecu and an apprentice (each apprentice has a different set of skills). Five workers and five buildings are placed face-up on the table, with the others set aside in separate decks. On a turn, you can take three free actions, then pay 5 ecu for each additional action you want to take. The possible actions are:
When one player reaches 17 points, players finish the round so that everyone has the same number of turns. Tally your points: each completed building card has a point value and each 10 ecu is worth 1 point. The player with the most points wins the game and is named First Builder of the Kingdom.
