Description Edit | History

Homesteaders is an auction and resource management game in which players bid on the opportunity to build certain types of buildings, then spend resource cubes to build one of several buildings of that type. The buildings confer abilities, income, and points; some automatically and some requiring a worker.

The game lasts ten rounds, with each round consisting of an auction phase followed by a building phase. After the last round, players take one final income phase and have one last chance to buy and sell goods and use their building abilities before scores are tallied.

Players score for their buildings, bonuses conferred by buildings, and points earned throughout the game from selling resource cubes. The player who builds the best combination of buildings and best manages the nine different resources in the game will score the most points and win – as long as they don't take on too much debt!

4 Building Supply Sheet with Japanese Description
This Supply-sheets are for laying out all building tiles at the start of the game. It helps understanding what you need to build through the game. Every tile space has descriptions in Japanese, so you don't need any Japanese paste-ups for building tiles. A4 x 3. ゲーム開始時に全ての建物タイルを並べておくためのサプライ・シートです。これにより、ゲームを通してどの建物を建築していくかを理解しやすくなります。各スペースには建物の説明が日本語で書かれており、建物タイルに和訳シールを貼る必要がありません。A4用紙3枚です。 尚、日本語説明には、nagamine氏のすばらしい和訳ルールを参考にさせて頂き、用語などもそれに合わせました。この場を借りてお礼申し上げます。

8 Homesteaders - Endgame Debt Payment Chart
I've developed this chart as a teaching tool for the end of game scoring regarding the leftover debt chits. I also am using it as a visual aid to stress the importance of not neglecting your debt. I'll probably add some graphics and cool fonts to it later. I only whipped this up and uploaded it because I really needed it, and I thought others might enjoy it, too.
