Prequel to "Here I Stand", Ed Beache's famed game published by GMT GAMES. It is a game for 4 players (Muslim, French, Portuguese and Spanish) covering the reign of the Catholic Monarchs and the voyages of the Age of Discovery.

This is a CDG where each player has to reach 45VP to win in the course of 7 maximum turns. Players play cards for their event or to perform actions from a list of available options for each power and at a specific cost for each action. VPs are earned either by military objectives, discoveries of new zones, trade, royal weddings or certain events. In each turn the 4 players alternate playing cards and so on until the end of the turn. The combats are resolved by means of dice rolls with possible support of combat cards and taking into account the type of participating unit.
