Manual

At the beginning you should try to get a good economic basis. In order to do so you have to extend the 18 resource fields (village overview). There are four different types of resource fields: Woodcutter, Clay pit, Iron mine and Cropland. If you click one of them, you will get more information and the option to extend it.

Later in the game the buildings in the village become important too. In order to construct a new building you have to click on one of the green ovals. A list with every building that is available will appear.

Some buildings can only be built if you fulfil the prerequisites which are other buildings.
