In the card game Friesematenten, players want to collect enough of the right type of cards to score 40 victory points.
To do this, you must build up an economy, then use the money to build status (victory points), but the cards are shuffled and sometimes you have to buy victory points early to win. The game includes a lot of powerful action cards, and you must find the right price for them in auctions.
This new version Friesematenten, which was previously self-published by Friese, is streamlined with some new cards and completely new artwork. The marker management is no longer in the game to open the game for not-so-experienced gamers.
The marker management will be included with the first expansion coming in early 2011.
