Winner of game of the year in Finland: "Vuoden peli - Perhepelit". Majesty is a charming game where players take on the roles of different lords who are all in a con-test for the crown.
They must recruit people to their lands in order to gain enough influence and gold to take the crown. Each turn six different villagers are arranged for recruitment by the players to be placed in one of seven buildings. Every time a villager is placed on a building, that building activates with an effect that can range from extra gold to attacking the other players. Once all play-ers have recruited 12 villagers the game ends and gold pieces are tallied. The winner is the player who has the most gold.
