From the announcement:
Bruxelles 1893 invites you to take on the role of an artist / architect in Belgium during the last years of the 1800s. A new style of art is growing, built on towers of flowing curves and intricate lines, and you just might be one of the few who gets to define this new genre of art. In every game, you must create beautiful works of art and construct soaring buildings. Some may garner you Belgian francs, but to make your mark on the ages, you’ll need more victory points than any of your opponents at the end of five rounds.
