El Grande is set in 15th century Spain, at the end of the Reconquista. The players send out their caballeros to gain control over the 9 regions and become “El Grande”. However, everything depends on the location of the king - and majorities may shift in the blink of an eye.

Players take turns depending on which power card they play. Each turn, players choose 1 of 5 action cards, allowing them to place caballeros on the map and perform a special action. After 3 rounds, they gain points depending on the majorities in the different regions - and extra points for the majority in the current “kingdom” and their home region. After 9 rounds total, somebody will be the new ruler of medieval Spain.
