The Guild Gold Edition (2005)

About This Game

It’s the year 1400- the late Middle Ages. Europe sees the dawn of the golden age of the new departures and the free spirit. Under the rule of the bourgeoisie and businessmen, more and more towns are emerging from the clutches of the aristocracy and are achieving independence, power and wealth.
New businesses are flourishing, bringing financial strength and political influence to a growing economy.

However, life in the narrow, overpopulated alleyways and streets of the towns also has its downsides: epidemics and diseases are spreading, and thieves and highwaymen lie in wait to get their piece of the wealth.
Now you can try your hand in these exciting times of change. Will you head down the path of an honest craftsman or a dubious priest?
It’s your choice.


Throughout the game, the player may indulge in intrigues, rise to a position in government, and obtain titles. Each title allows the player to upgrade their house by one level, which starts as a hovel and culminates in a palace. Each successively higher title increases the player’s influence, allowing such things as sabotage, spying, blackmail, or taking opponents to court.


  • Includes the original game plus its expansion pack
  • Blackmail, kidnap, sabotage or buy your way into a higher position in the government
  • Choose your way to play this game from micromanaging a factory to rising your position in the city
