Philosopher Kings: Detailed Description

Players are wise philosophers, fervently seeking knowledge and gaining immortality via the annals of time.  Each philosopher creates an ideal image of him/herself (i.e. what areas of philosophy they seek to become experts in) at the beginning of the game, and the first philosopher to realize this ideal image wins the game.  They accomplish this by visiting countries from around the world in order to conduct the research necessary for the journal articles and books they publish, for which they can win awards, as well as to attend and give presentations at various conferences.  As they grow wiser, philosophers receive more Acclaim and gain more expertise in their particular fields, until one philosopher finally realizes his/her ideal image and is crowned the “Philosopher King.”
