It's a simple game to learn but has plenty of strategy and complexity to keep everyone interested. Essentially, you use your tokens / gemstones to acquire developments that increase your prestige and grant you bonuses. These bonuses can then be used to buy increasingly more rewarding developments which will then attract visits from noble patrons, granting you all important prestige points.
