I love this game even though I don't ever seem to accomplish much and am not 100% sure I understand what I'm doing. But it's not the right game for everyone. Make sure to demo before you buy!

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!
I assume I just dont 'get it', so take that into account.
But I found it dull, very badly explained, dull to look at. And the gameplay was boring.
Essentially it is a strategy board game. You follow a family through several generations, and have to plan a few turns ahead to consider your next moves. I found it quite shallow, and plain.
