The plain board comprises of distinctive hexes encompassed by the ocean and the remaining asset hexes yield timber, minerals, wool, brick or wheat.

Players gather assets based on where their urban communities and settlements are placed in the hexes. When a particular number is rolled out on a hex, they acquire that hex. These assets are then used to construct streets, settlements, urban areas and purchase advancement cards.
