At the dawn of Man, humans were hunters and gatherers and they roamed across the empty world. As ages passed, peoples began to settle and cultivate the earth. Villages, cities and metropolises were founded and cultural and technological advances were made. Civilizations arose.
But with time, old civilizations fell and new arose. As a leader of a civilization, it is your duty to lead your people to glory. But beware, in time your people will also fall and you must choose whether to share their fate or find a new people to lead.
Peoples is an epic game stretching from the first recorded history of mankind to modern age.
The players take on the roles of leaders of the various peoples that migrate across the world and
found settlements. The more tribes of their peoples that they gather in the settlements and the more
advanced civilizations they create, the more victory points they will earn. But the peoples are fickle
and each new age will see new leaders as the players play different peoples each age. To win Peoples,
you must lead not only the peoples of the current age well but also plan for the future ages as well.
