Eigenpoll : Financial IQ Games : St. Petersburg Card game deals with 'gracious living along the river Neva': the baroque palaces, wide boulevards and imposing bridges of St. Petersburg. On May 16th, 1703, Czar Peter laid the cornerstone for the first building. Quickly, glorious buildings were added, always being expanded, so that Nobility (as well as victory-bringing Fame Points) may want to move in. But to accomplish this, one needs merchants that can bankroll the necessary Rubles or the glory is over. The competition isn't sleeping either, and can sometimes steal a desired card right out from under your nose.
