Versailles is a eurogame of building the palace at Versailles. The players will build it together but the winner is the player who gets the most recognition from the King in the form of victory points (VPs). The board shows the palace building site in the centre and various construction locations around the outside such as the timber mill, gold mine, architects guild, workshop, etc.
Each player has several workers which start on some of the construction locations. On your turn, you move 1 worker 1 location (following the arrows between the construction locations). You can exhaust one of your two double movement tiles to move 2 workers together, or to move 1 worker two locations. (Note that you can not move workers to the location you activated on your previous turn.)
After moving your worker(s), you activate the location where your workers moved to. The more workers you have at a location when it is activated, the better the reward; for example, you get 1/2/3 wood when you have 1/2/3 workers at the timber mill, 0/1/2 gold when you have 1/2/3 workers at the gold mine. Some locations require more than just workers too, i.e. you need resources as well as workers to be able to purchase some decoration tiles, and sometimes you need decoration tiles to be able to construct some palace tiles.
