Designed by Reiner Knizia 1999. Published by W&L. For 2-4 players and takes about 30 minutes to play. An abstract game where players play cards in an effort to acquire tiles that are either color-coded or number-coded. Players take turns, first playing a card onto a tile that matches either the card's number or its color, then drawing to refill their hands. When all cards have been played, each tile is evaluated, and whichever player has the most cards played to that tile gets that tile's points. After calculating point totals and figuring in bonuses, the player with the highest score is the winner. Ten estates for the taking. Playing clockwise, place one of your knights into an estate to strengthen your claim. In the end, the player with the most knights in an estate takes possession. The player with the most valuable estates wins the game.
