There are bonus items on the wall for the first player to reach that point. Play is very similar to Carcassonne but all the tiles must be played within the walls, which often constrains the choices. The followers used for scoring are heralds (on paths), knights (on towers), squires (on houses) and merchants (on courtyards which are more valuable if they have a market). And, the player with the largest "keep" (largest house completed during the game) scores points for the largest contiguous undeveloped area (unplayed tile spaces) at the end of the game.
The bonus tiles collected from the walls add twists to the scoring, such as doubling one of a particular scoring structure or scoring one uncompleted structure. 2020 Gra Roku Game of the Year Nominee. 2020 Gra Roku Best Two Player Game Winner. 2020 Gra Roku Best Two Player Game Nominee.2004 Spiel des Jahres Recommended. 2004 International Gamers Award - General Strategy: Two-players.
