Each player is dealt 5 random cards from the Influence Deck.

one extra Influence card per power counter present. 
Each player also draws 2 Random cards from the Development Deck. 
If a deck ever runs out, shuffle the discard and draw from it. 
Influence cards are kept hidden in players hands. 
Development cards are kept face up so everyone may see. 

Each player assigns each of his Influence cards to different Regions. 
One Influence card can only be assigned to one Region, but it can be any of the 10 Regions. 
A player may assign multiple cards to a single Region. 
A player may chose to assign a region zero cards. 
A player must assign all of his cards. 
Assigned cards are placed stacked under their assigned region on a players Bidding Strip. 
Thus all assignments (Bids) are hidden (secret). 

Each player plays 1 Development card and discards his others. 
The indicated region gains Resource or Power Counters. 
Then discard played cards. 

Each player may move 1 of their Influence cards to different region. 

Player slide their Bidding strips forward to reveal what Influence cards they 
assigned to each region. 
Players then place an equal value of their Influence Tokens onto the corresponding 
areas of the Central Region Map. 
Then all players discard all Influence cards. 

The player with the most Influence in a Region gets Victory Point Tokens 
equal to the number of Resource and Power Tokens in that Region. 
The player with the second most Influence in a Region gets Victory Point Tokens 
equal to half the number of Resource and Power Tokens in that Region rounding down. 
The player with the third most Influence in a Region gets 1 Victory Point Token. 

Shuffle the Event deck. 
Starting with the Instigator and going clockwise, each player in turn draws the top card of 
the Event deck and assigns it to a Region that has not yet been assigned an Event card this turn. 
This continues until all Event cards have been assigned. 

The Instigator gives the Instigator Token to the player on his left.
