Homesteaders is an auction and resource management game in which players bid on the opportunity to build certain types of buildings, then spend resources to build one of several buildings of that type. The buildings confer abilities, income, points and end of game bonuses.
The game lasts ten rounds. First you assign your workers so that they will generate resources. Next you have to pay your workers. Then the auction phase comes. Spend your money wisely because you don’t want to collect too much debt!
