How to Play Franklin's Fortune
Franklin’s Fortune is a deck-building game played on a table top. Your goal is to accumulate cards and Sterling----as much of Franklin’s Fortune as you can.
You start with a small deck of cards and each turn is an opportunity to acquire more cards and to earn Sterling. Acquire cards from the Common using Energy and Persistence----your renewable resources, and Sterling----the monetary resource. Earn Sterling by working your Occupations, and increase your earnings with Education and Experience.
The game ends when all the cards are taken from the Common. Each card is worth one point and each 10 Sterling is worth one point. The player with the highest score wins.
