Terra Mystica is a strategy game with a simple game principle and very little luck involved: you govern one of the 14 factions trying to transform the landscape on the game board in your favor in order to build your structures. On the one hand, proximity to other players limits your options for further expansion, on the other hand though, it provides some benefits during the game. This conflict is the source of Terra Mystica's appeal.

Taking turns, the players execute their actions on the resources they have at their disposal.

* Structures may be upgraded to provide even more resources, like workers, priests, money, and power. Dwellings can be developed into trading houses; trading houses into strongholds or temples; and one temple can be upgraded to a sanctuary.
* Build temples to gain more influence in the four cults of fire, water, earth, and air, so you can develop religion and your terraforming and seafaring skills.
* Build your stronghold to activate your faction's special ability.
* Expand and build new dwellings to have many workers at hand.
* Make sure to have a constant flow of money by building trading houses.

Each group must also develop its terraforming skill and its skill with boats to use the rivers. The groups in question, along with their home landscapes, are:

* Desert (Fakirs, Nomads)
* Plains (Halflings, Cultists)
* Swamp (Alchemists, Darklings)
* Lake (Mermaids, Swarmlings)
* Forest (Witches, Auren)
* Mountain (Dwarves, Engineers)
* Solitude (Giants, Chaos Magicians)

The artfully designed factions, each having unique special abilities, as well as the exchangeable bonus cards allow for a large number of possible game plays that constantly keep Terra Mystica entertaining!
