The Patrician is set in medieval times, focusing on the trading efforts of the Hanseatic League. You (and up to 3 other players) struggle for money and respectability.

The game ends, when you are elected to ├ältermannÔÇöthe highest rank in this century.

You earn money by buying goods cheap and selling them for higher price. With the profits you can buy new ships (out of 4 different types) or stores.

There are also pirate battles. For these, you can buy weapons for your ships and go with ships from other traders to hunt the pirates.
