Here’s a quick setup guide for Last Will. If you need a rules refresher, watch my How to Play Last Will video.
Hi! It’s Ryan from Nights Around a Table. Here’s how you set up Last Will.
Put the common boards on the table. The boards are double-sided, and they mark how many players they support; in 3- and 5-player games, you’ll need to slip this extra piece between the two boards. Shuffle and stack the four regular decks beneath the board. Player board extensions go here. Shuffle the special cards in one, two, and three-crown piles, and then form a complete deck, with the one-crown cards on top. Set the round marker to round 1. Deal the modifier tokens out randomly to the real estate market. Put the companion tokens, property value markers, and money in piles around the board. Everyone takes a player board in their chosen colour, along with a planning marker and two errand boys. Deal three helpers and expenses cards, and three property cards, to each player. You look at your cards, keep any two, and discard the rest.
The rulebook says that 70 pounds is a good starting amount for all players. There are also these Last Will cards; you can draw one to determine the starting amount instead.
Once everyone has their starting money and cards, you deal cards out to the common board according to the symbols in the spaces and begin the game. The last person to have bought something takes the first player marker.
