Lords and Ladies invites you to create an aristocratic family's legacy through marriage, hiring servants, having children while crushing rivals with gossip and betrayal.
In Lords and Ladies, you control a turn-of-the-20th-century noble family and their servants.
Created by the brother and sister team, Jason and Jen Corace, and inspired by their love of period dramas like Upstairs Downstairs and of course Downton Abbey, the duo decided that instead of just watching the drama unfold, they wanted to create a game where player’s could experience and make the drama themselves.
The goal of the game is to raise your family’s status through careful marriages, hiring servants and having children all the while destroying rival families through gossip, backstabbing and using your superior wit. The first player to end a round with 18 status points wins the game.
