Java is a fascinating island with great potential for development. Of special interest is the undeveloped area of central Java with its fertile soil and rich natural resources. These riches are much desired by the rulers of the regions that surround central Java.
Each player is one of the Javanese rulers, who wants to claim and develop the region for himself. Each wants to bring his culture and control to these undeveloped areas. The players irrigate the land and cultivate new rice fields. They found villages, build palaces to create cities from the villages, and arrange festivals in the palaces. Each desires to be the dominant force in the development of this new area.
Players earn fame points for building and enlarging palaces, for creating irrigation systems, and for arranging palace festivals. They record these points on the scoring track. The most
points are earned in the final scoring. The player with the most fame points after the final scoring, is the winner.
