Each player is an Italian prince and begins the game with two cities. The first building in each city is the prince's castle. First, the princes must provide food for their people. As the populations of the princes' cities grow, so must the food supplies. With their basic needs met, the people look beyond, for the services their city can supply. As the cities grow and seek to provide services, the princes build schools for education, statues for culture and public baths for health. Not all cities' service are equal. Those that provide better services for their citizens will attract people from those that do not. In the end, it is the prince that provides the best for his people that will win the game.
