The Fifth Dynasty of Brendan
April 26, 2016 — May 23, 2016
- I’m not going to lie to you: we’re showing up pretty late to the game here. Real estate prices are up, vacation spending is down, and kids these days would rather sit on the couch in their darn VR helmets than visit an actual amusement park. And don’t even talk to me about what it costs to license IP.
- But screw all that, we’ve got the best team on the peninsula here and I don’t intend to waste it. You’ve each got your allotted parcel of land—that’s literally your job cut out for you. I want to see market research on my desk tomorrow and blueprints the day after that. Opening day is in six months, and we’ve got until then to make mountains out of this molehill. Now get to work!
- Repeal all dynastic rules. Replace “Overlord” with “Boss” and “Orc” with “Imagineer” throughout the Ruleset.
I'm actually not sure who was active at the end of this Dynasty.

The victory condition was that when the Boss's debt had been reduced to zero, the game ended and the player with the most "Smiles" points won. Kevan won a lot of money on an overlooked bid, proposed to reduce the Boss's debt so that it became less than his own stockpile, then triggered an apparently forgotten clause that if a player had too much "leftover" money without spending it, it would automatically be used to write off the Boss's debt. With the Boss's debt at zero, Kevan had the most Smiles and won.
