Orléans Stories is based on the bag-building mechanism known from Orléans. It has developed into a narrative experience in which players go through different eras and face different challenges. In Orleans Stories, players no longer focus solely on the city of Orleans and trade with the surrounding villages, but now move to the Loire Valley. Players will have to cultivate and produce, found villages and build fortresses and churches. They will experience periods of prosperity and success, but also periods of deprivation. They will have to defy hunger and plague, fight for their land and perhaps conquer foreign lands to protect the lives of their settlers.
Different rules for each story. The game consists of two stories: The First Empire, an epic story that spans eight eras. Each era presents a different situation. For example, conquer foreign lands with the help of powerful knights or develop medicine to fight the plague that threatens to decimate the settlers. The King's Favor, shorter, this story is simpler and more appropriate as an introduction to the game. Spanning five eras, you will have to complete many tasks, some of which must be completed before the end of each era. Those who fail to do so will be left behind. The threat of having to end the game prematurely provides a constant thrill. Tasks will also be compared in the king's castle, where victory points will be awarded to players based on their achievements.
The different eras affect the parameters and rules of the game, creating new strategic possibilities. This forces players to constantly adapt to new conditions of the game. Epoch changes require a new way of looking at things. The game experience is made easier thanks to the story booklet, in which players will find not only all relevant information and the peculiarities of the rules, but also tips for preparing for the next game in the form of a narrated story.
