Card game for 2-4+ players. 
Each player controls a country during the 
First Industrial Revolution. 
Players try to develop their economies as quickly as possible. 

The first player to have a combined score of 100+ in 
Guns and Luxury Goods wins. 
If more than 1 person gets 100+ on the same turn, the 
Player with the higher score wins. 
If it is still tied, use transportation, and then Population, as tie-breakers. 

There are 7 types of Resources: 
1. Food (Agriculture: Crops, Grains, Livestock, Fisheries) 
2. Population (Skilled and Unskilled Labor)
3. Fossil Fuels (Coal, Oil, Gas)
4. Steel (Production Capacity) 
5. Transportation (Trains, Shipping, Roads)
6. Guns (Military Weapons, Ammunition, and Vehicles)
7. Luxury Goods (Peacetime Consumption)
Each player has a score in each of the seven resources. 
As the game progresses, these scores will go up and down. 
Use paper and pencil (or a scoring track) to record your scores. 

There are 2 common decks: 
1. The Industry Deck
2. The Event Deck

The industry deck contains 10 cards for each of the 7 resources. 
These cards are used in Development phase to increase your scores. 
The deck has 2 copies of each card. 

Each player has the following starting scores. 
20 Food
10 Population
5 Fossil Fuels
5 Steel
5 Transportation
5 Guns

One random player is given the Initiative marker. 
The Initiative marker determines who  goes first in each phase during the turn. 

Each turn has 8 phases: 
1. Resource Phase
2. Transport Phase
3. Trade Phase
4. Event Phase
5. Development Phase
6. War Phase
7. Peace Phase
8. Initiative Phase

Each player draws 7 cards from the Industry deck. 
If the deck runs out, shuffle the discard and draw from it. 

Each player may discard up to 3 cards to the Industry deck and 
Draw replacement cards. 
If the deck runs out, shuffle the discard and draw from it. 

Players may freely trade Industry cards, resources, and promises. 
Promises are non-binding. 

Each player draws one card from the Event deck.
Resolve and discard the Events as they are drawn.  
If any player draws a War card, there will be a War in War phase. 
Note that event cards target the player who draws them. 
If unstated, Events only last the current turn. 
Event cards may cause Resources to be increased past their regular limits. 

Each player may play (discard) up to 3 Industry cards. 
A played card increases a players score in the indicated Resource by 
The indicated amount. 
Note that most Resources are limited in score to the score of one or more 
Of your other Resources. If a card would bring your score above this limit, the 
Card may not be played. 

Resource:	Limit:
Food		There is no Limit to your Food score
Population	Your Population score can be no higher than your Food score
Fossil Fuels	There is no Limit to your Fossil Fuel score
Steel		Steel cannot be higher than your Fuel score
Transportation	Transport cannot exceed your Steel or your Fuel scores
Guns		Gun score cannot be greater than Steel or Population scores

Note: If a score goes down for some reason, it does not cause scores that 
Depend on it to also go down. 

If one or more War Event cards were revealed in War phase, there is a War. 
The player with the highest Gun score wins the war. 
(Players may take turns discarding gun cards from their hands to temporarily 
increase their Gun scores for the purpose of this contest.) 
If tied, use Transport, and then Population scores as tie-breakers. 
The winner steals 2 random cards next turn from any other player in Resource Phase. 
The losers immediately lose 2 points from their scores in all their Resources. 

If there was no War this turn, the player with the highest Luxury Goods score 
Draws an extra 2 cards next turn in Resource Phase. 
If tied use Transport, and then Food as Tie-breakers.  

The player with the Initiative marker passes it to the player to his left.
