|Anno 1503 is an exciting game of exploration, in which you try to be the first to fulfill one of 5 winning conditions. Having so many different paths to victory leads to a very varied and interesting game, but also introduces a fair amount of luck. My favourite part of the game is trying to make the most of what I get by staying flexible about which winning condition to pursue - it doesn't win me every game, but in the long run, I win a lot.
