In Dynasties you’ll be allying yourself with your Nation's most prominent families, using their skills to make your Civilisation even more powerful. There are 6 Dynasties, which each great family being associated with one of Dominations' Knowledge Domains. Each Age, you will be playing Dynasty cards. Each one of these cards represents a family member of a particular Dynasty – an individual of great prowess who will lend you their aid in leading your nation to glory! These cards set off powerful effects that can generate resources, victory points, (sometimes both!) as well as other effects that give you a big boost during your turns. Additionally, the order in which you play these cards over the course of the game is important, as it represents the Dynasty that will be leading your people through the Ages and you gain extra points by collecting sets!
