Depending on the state of the players plantation and their sales they receive winning points. The goal is to have the most points at the end of the game. This means the "leader" has not only watch their own plantation but his opponents too so he doesn't give them advantages by choosing the wrong role. The six roles are settler (opening new plantation ), mayor (receiving new colonists), architect (constructing new buildings), supervisor (producing merchandise), merchant (selling merchandise) and captain (shipping merchandise).
This game features the usual improvements compared to the board version: AI opponents, multiplayer modes, automatic calculation of the winning points and a tutorial. The player can choose between a classical top-down view on the board or an animated 3D view. The game also includes a card set to expand the actual board game.
