Appears to be simple, but takes some thought.
I really enjoy this game, every now and then I will play it through one of the "ages" and then leave it for a couple of months. It is interesting and challenging to guide the families in this game to a higher social class. I like the board game aesthetic and thinking about how hard it would have been in more ancient eras to have any kind of social mobility. If you enjoy games that involve history, strategizing, working within a dynasty, and using your imagination, you will probably enjoy this game too!
