Furstenfeld: a game for 2 to 5 princely players from Friedemann Friese.
Anno 1516: as a young sovereigh you are cultivating your small Furstenfeld to supply goods to the local breweries. But you still miss your greatest dream: your personal palace. Your status will finally rise high enough to leave the vexed farming behind and to demand taxes from the surrounding rural population, so you can finally live in peace.
You harvest hops, barley, and spring water, and increase your wealth with a growing agriculture. Additional buildings help you to get the necessary funds for building your desired palace.
There are only two problems:
First, the demand for goods at the breweries is limited. The more goods the players produce, the faster the prices drop.
Second, the palace needs more and more space. The closer you are coming to finishing your dream palace, the smaller is your personal field for farming.
Furstenfeld is a game with easy rules, which allow players to start playing immediately. Each time you are confronted with new challenges:
* When do you start to build your palace?
* Which goods do you produce?
* Which additional buildings are helping you the most?
And when you finally master the base game, the expert game will already be waiting for you!
