You are a coutier of the Court of the Sun King; in the background the prestigious palace of Versailles. You will successively play the part of several members of a noble family. You have left your distant province to seek fortune in Paris by acquiring honor and wealth. The only way to do so is by ingratiating yourself with the royal family. But be on your gaurd! Other courtiers will do use all their power to embarass you in front of the King and Quenn and possibly send you to a less pleasant place like the Bastille! The winnter will be the first player who collects a fortune of 50,000 pounds. Tactics, alliance, role playing and humor occur throught the game; constantly renewing the player's interest.
Each of the Courtiers has mark of popularity with the King and the Queen. These marks constantly evolve duing the course of the game according to the success or failure of the actions you undertake, and the jealousy of the other players. The highter your mark is raised the easier you gain the favor of the King, which increases your fortune. You will be brillant in the war, show your braverly and your dexterity in the hunt, and respect the etiquette of the Court in the chambers of Versailles. Demonstrate your intellect, organize a concert and theater performance, offer beautiful necklaces to the Queen and gifts, be the Favourite of the King or the Lover of the Queen, survive the war, the hunting accident, poison, avoid duels, lose graciously at gambling, exile in the colonies, and about all avoid the prison at the Bastille. Through the astutue play and a little luck, you will finally end up rich, a marquis, marshal of France, Governor to the King, and minister.
