Join us on a journey to the middle ages - a time when emerging trading cities became important influencial factors in the political game for power and wealth. Originating in Lübeck, the Hanseatic Trade League is formed, long-distance traders join forces and thereby create unprecedented wealth in northern Europe.
There are also many opportunities for young merchants to gain power and influence. Nevertheless, only few have the chance to be elected to the most influential position and thus lead the Hanseatic Trade League as Aelderman.
Aelderman is a competitive Euro-game for 1-4 players. You embody an ambitious merchant in the medieval Hanseatic Trade League and fight for your place at the top of the trade alliance!
Through lucrative trading with other Hanseatic cities, you increase your wealth and gain more and more influence in the entire region of the North and Baltic Sea. Meanwhile, you contribute to the development of the flourishing city of Lübeck by commissioning useful buildings. Try to secure important privileges during the Hanseatic Convention in the Council Hall before your opponents take them away from you.
