Orléans Stories is based on the bag-building mechanism known from Orléans,
with this mechanisms having been further developed into a storytelling
experience in which players go through different eras and face different
challenges. Broadly speaking, instead of focusing on the city of
Orléans and trade with the surrounding villages, player are now settling
the Loire Valley. Players must farm and produce, found villages, and
build fortresses and churches. They will experience times of prosperity
and success, but also times of deprivation; they must defy hunger and
plague, fight for their land, and perhaps conquer foreign lands to
secure the lives of their settlers. In the end, however, there is peace
and the joint administration of territories and villages.

The game includes two stories: “The First Kingdom” and “The King’s
Favor”. “The First Kingdom” is an epic story that spans eight so-called
eras, and each era features different conditions and emphases. Sometimes
knights settle down, with whose help you can conquer foreign
territories, sometimes the plague threatens to decimate the population
of settlers unless all have worked together to develop medicine.

“The King’s Favor” is shorter, simpler, and more suitable as an
introduction to the game. Over five eras, certain tasks have to be
fulfilled by the end of each era, and those who fail to do so will drop
out mercilessly. The threat of having to end the game prematurely
provides a constant thrill, but all tasks are achievable, so that
(usually) all players experience the end of the fifth era — but those
who have concentrated only on the tasks will be punished because at this
point everyone’s achievements will be compared in the king’s castle,
and you will receive victory points for territory size, buildings,
goods, and coins.

The different eras affect the parameters of play as well as the rules
of the game, creating new strategic possibilities. This challenges
players to constantly adapt to current conditions, giving you the
impression of experiencing a story, but unlike in legacy games, these
stories can be repeated as often as you like. The changes from era to
era require a new way of looking at things from a distance, but this is
made easier for players by a story booklet in which players will find
not only all relevant information and rule peculiarities, but also hints
of how to prepare for the upcoming game in the form of a narrated
