After The Empire is a worker placement/resource management game set in the middle ages. During each turn, known as a season, players alternate using worker tokens (peons) to take actions, such as gathering resources, building advanced buildings and recruiting refugees from either the shared game board or their personal fiefdom. Once all peons have been committed, players harvest food from their surrounding lands and then prepare for combat.
During each season's combat a minimum of three invader cards are revealed, with a randomized number of troops and compass direction of attack. Only the wealthiest of castles will draw the attention of larger forces and their siege weapons. You must repair your city and recruit and arm your troops quickly to stand any chance. The normal game ends after eight turns, but can scale up to 16 turns for the epic experience. The winner is declared by who has preserved their fiefdom and saved up the most gold.
Your life, your wealth, your fiefdom, and your legacy must be protected at all costs!"
