Players take turns. 
Each turn has 6 Phases: 
1. Fate Phase
2. Foe Phase
3. Fortune Phase
4. Fight Phase
5. Feat Phase
6. Finale Phase

Draw 3 cards from the Play Deck. 
Place them face-up in front of you. 
If the deck runs out, shuffle the discard and draw from it. 

Place any Foe cards you drew onto any Regions that have 
Not yet been conquered. 
Note: When placing (attaching) a Play card onto a region, place it 
Slightly under the Region card so its Strength is still visible. 

Place any Victory cards you drew onto any Regions that have 
Not yet been conquered. 

Place any War cards you drew onto any Regions that have 
Not yet been conquered. See the Hostility & Conquest Rules. 
War cards, Foe cards, and Region Cards have Strength Ratings. 
If the total Strength of the War cards on a Region is equal to or greater than 
The Strength of the Region card plus attached Foe cards, you conquer the Region. 

If you conquered a Region (card) last phase, place it, and any attached 
Victory cards into your Victory Pile. 
Discard all Foe and War cards on the Region card. 
Each Victory card is worth 1 Victory Point (VP)
Each Region has its own VP value listed on the card. 

You must play all 3 cards you were dealt this turn if possible. 
If it is not possible to play a card, discard it. 

Some War and Foe cards have the Hostility Trait. 
These can be played on a Non-Hostile Region to make it become Hostile. 
War cards without the Hostility Trait can only be played on Hostile Regions. 
The only Region that starts the game Hostile is Aquitania. 
The other Regions must be converted to a Hostile State. 

Some War cards have the Conquest Trait. 
These cards can only be used if by playing them you actually 
Conquer in that Phase the Region you play them on.
