During the reign of Rudolf II, Prague was a capital of the occult arts. Alchemists and personalities from all walks of life rubbed shoulders here. Some of them hoped to put into practice the alchemical formulas they had worked out after months of study. Others enjoyed meeting unusual individuals to the point of becoming their patrons. On the Place de l'Horloge Astronomique, as in the famous Ruelle d'Or, good encounters allowed alchemists to acquire their mysterious components through skilful negotiations. The Emperor, a great lover of esotericism, intervened by influencing the actors of these brigues. He made his wishes known thanks to a messenger carrying an enigmatic seal representing an ouroboros.
Join the city of alchemists to accomplish your Magnum Opus, your "great work", with more brilliance than your peers!

Each player plays the role of an alchemist in search of fame. You come to Prague to find components for your Magnum Opus experiments. Every Component you acquire, every formula you complete, and every pair of Components you see in sight earns you prestige points. The player with the most prestige points at the end of the game is declared the winner.
