In Macao players take the roles of influential adventurers who risked it all in the 17th century to try their luck in Macao, the most important trading center in the Far East.  By lucrative trade with Europe, well planned expansion in the city and skillful filling at important offices and positions the players increase their prestige and points.

In each of the twelve rounds players must first select a new card and two of the six dice rolled, which bring them action cubes.  Next the players use the available action cubes to estimate cards, take possession of a city quarter, move their ship and deliver goods to Europe.  To win, the player who plans well and uses their action cubes effectively will gain the most prestige and points.
