OVERVIEW OF CONCORDIA
Concordia is a game of strategic economic development, which takes place in ancient Roman times. Colonists set out from Rome to find a home that they can call their own. The players must plan strategically, constantly taking their opponents’ moves into consideration. The players will earn victory points as their cities progress and grow.
The players will place the board in the middle of the playing area. They will then lay out the cards beside the board, separating them by type. The coins are separated by amount and placed on the other side of the board.
Each player will then collect a player aid card. The players will then randomly choose a starting player, and they will receive the Praefectus Magnus card! The game is then ready to begin.
The game will continue in a clockwise fashion, beginning with the starting player and rotating around the group. During their turn, a player will play one card from their hand and complete the actions that are associated with the card that they played. The cards that have been played will accumulate in a pile, which will be the discard pile.
Each personality card is associated with an ancient god, and each one will reward for certain achievements. The players will continue to play cards and complete actions until the game comes to an end. Players are sometimes able to purchase personality cards in order to expand their hand, and when the last one is purchased, the end of the game is sparked.
END OF GAME
The game comes to an end when a player buys the last personality card or build their fifteenth house. The players will complete their final turn before scoring can be finished. The players will tally their victory points. The player with the most victory points, wins the game!
