This is a really intriguing card game. The idea behind it is that each player is a feudal lord with dreams of expanding their realm through the collection of and investment in various holdings and industries. Cards represent the people, places and things, and the game is always different because the components (the people, places and things) are randomized. The problem with the game is that there is a lot of shuffling (of the cards each player collects) and it can slow the game down, which is why a lot of people are playing an online automated version of it.
