Defend the City of Vilnius against the German Knights that want to conquer your home. Each round in VILNIUS you have to decide whether you will develop your quarter (civil action) or prepare to fight against the foreign warriors (military action). The more civil buildings you build, the stronger the Knights become, but your co-operative partners will help you to defend. If you are not strong enough, the Knights destroy buildings or parts of the city wall that all players commonly defend.
The players are succeed if the city wall can be defended until the pile is empty for second and third time. They lose if Vilnius falls.
