In Newton players act as eager fresh scientists who want to become one of the great thinkers and geniuses of their era. In order to achieve this, players will travel around Europe, visit universities and cities, discover new theories, build new tools and work to earn money for their further efforts.
The game is played over six rounds. Each round, every player plays five cards from their hand, and each played card allows the player to perform one of the many actions of the game. An action can have a variety of effects, which depend on the symbols on the board. At the end of the round, a player can take back all the cards except for one. One card has to remain on the board, which means that you give up one possibility of doing that action, but also that that very action will be carried out with greater strength. Fortunately, you can acquire new cards with additional powers to perform more actions.
After six rounds, you calculate your final score, and the player with the most VP wins.
