About the Game
Each player has 3 different areas in front of them. The Future, the Present and the Past. During every round, players will be drafting Location, Character and Event cards adding them in their Future with various resources on them.
Which player will create the most promising timeline?
They then collect a certain number of resources from those cards and all cards that no longer hold any resources, are moved in to each player’s Present. The following action phase allows each player to start activating the cards in their present, to perform various actions as they build and manipulate their own, as well as their opponent’s game engine in an attempt to score the most Fortune points.
