Orleans Invasion - The Big Expansion for Orleans that adds new ways to play: Invasion, a cooperative scenario; Prosperity, a scenario for 2 to 5; The Duell for 2 players; and 3 Solo Scenarios!

New Worlds in the Old Bag

After many years of peace and quiet, Orléans is facing turmoil. Invaders are threatening the city! It is time to leave the competition behind and join forces in protecting Orléans... Discover totally new worlds around the popular bag building game in 6 new scenarios!

Invasion cooperative scenario

Arm the city against the impending invasion in the cooperative variant! Together fill the granaries, reinforce the city walls, and secure the borders. On top of that, each player must complete an individual objective. And each round you must face new challenges; sometimes arsonists start fires, sometimes rats go for your supplies. Unexpected support is totally welcome in those times...

Prosperity scenario for 2 to 5 players

This variant introduces secret objectives to the game, for which you receive additional points. Move the carpenter around to build buildings in certain places and make sure they are being managed properly.

3 Solo Scenarios for 1 player

On your own, complete objectives of different difficulty in various solo scenarios. Aside from a proper strategy, you will also need some luck to draw the right person from your bag at the right time.

The Duell scenario for 2 players

In the two-player variant "The Duel", you play directly against each other. The player who first completes all four objectives wins. In case you both complete them on the same round, your supplies will decide who wins!

In Orleans Strategy is Everything!
During the medieval goings-on around Orleans, you must assemble a following of farmers, merchants, knights, monks etc.

You need followers and their abilities to expand your dominance putting them to work as traders, builders, and scientists. Knights expand your scope of action and secure your mercantile expeditions. Craftsmen build trading stations and tools to facilitate work. Scholars make progress in science, and last but not least it cannot hurt to get active in monasteries, since with monks on your side you are much less likely to fall prey to fate.
You will always want to take more actions than possible, and there are many paths to victory. The challenge is to combine all elements as best as possible with regard to your strategy.
