A Kennerspiel des Jahres Enthusiast's Game of the Year Nominee! Strasbourg, the 15th century: The political fortunes of the city are powerfully influenced by the craft guilds which occasionally occupy the majority of seats on the city council. In Strasbourg, players take on the roles of these ambitious families, seeking to get members admitted to the guilds. Only the clever use of Influence Points will enable you to be accepted as an apprentice, journeyman, or even master - provided that you have the money for the appropriate entrance fees on hand. But never underestimate the power of the nobility and the Church! Only the player who never takes his eyes off his competitors' plans will earn the greatest prestige at the end!
