In Lancaster the players want to proceed from simply being a Lord to the most powerful ally of the king. They may achieve this by developing their own knighthood as well as by clever deployment of individual knights in the counties of England, at their own castle, and to conflicts with France. In parliament, they try to push laws from which they will benefit themselves most. The player with the most power points at the end of the game is the winner.

The game has three phases:

The phase one - placing the knights onto the board

The phase three - conflict phase

The phase two - parliament voting law phase

Every turn, players send their knights to the different locations:
1. Counties, where they compete with knights from other players for rewards and the favor of the nobles.
 2. The castle, to receive income or new knights.
3. Into conflict with France, where all players combine their power and try to gain power points.

In the counties the strength of the knights is important as you can remove the knight of another player by placing a knight of your own with higher strength in the same location.

This worker placement game takes about 60 minutes to play, but has a great amount of strategy in it.
