The players take on the role of investors seeking to make the most money by developing buildings in The Estates. Players bid for the various building pieces and place them in The Estates, hopefully to their benefit. At the end of the game, all buildings in completed rows score positive points, while all buildings in incomplete rows score negative points. It is possible to have zero completed rows of buildings, meaning the winner could be the player with the fewest negative points. This game is intentionally cutthroat in terms of player interaction, as the only way to win is to hurt the other players’ prospects. If you enjoy that sort of gameplay, this game is great at it!
