In It's a Wonderful World, you are leading an expanding Empire. You must choose the path that will get you to develop faster and better than you competitors.
The game lasts 4 rounds. Each round, you draft cards that you use to produce Resources and develop your Empire.
After having chosen your cards, you can recycle some of them to acquire Resources immediately, or slate them for Construction to produce Resources each round and/or gain Victory Points. At the end of the 4th round, the player with the most Victory Points wins.
