Kingmaker Board Game: Royal Relaunch

GIBG9029 Kingmaker Board Game: Royal Relaunch published by Gibson Games

GIBG9029: Kingmaker Board Game: Royal Relaunch is Out of Stock

First launched in 1974, Kingmaker simulates the Wars of the Roses, the period of sporadic Civil War in England between 1450 and 1490. The tabletop game is based on the premise that the powerful Noble families used the Lancastrian and Yorkist princes as pawns in a greater game of gaining control of England. To play, you must control your 'faction' using your military and political power to control and influence the royal heirs, whilst trying to take down all the other heirs. It's a game of strategy, deception, and luck - making each game unpredictable and a lot of fun.

There are four games in Kingmaker: The Royal Re-Launch: The new Kingmaker II for 2 to 5 players, for those who prefer a shorter game with a greater variety of win conditions, including prestige gained through domination of the government, cities, and the church. The original Classic Kingmaker for 2 to 6 players, where the only path to victory is through controlling the last crowned Royal piece. Extended Classic Kingmaker with extra Crown and Event cards along with additional optional rules for Parliament and battles, in which dice can be used to determine whether Nobles and Royal pieces live or die. The Solo Challenge, for solitaire play. Each player controls a Faction consisting of one or more Nobles. Each Noble piece on the board has a corresponding Noble card displayed by the controlling player in their Faction space. Players can strengthen their Nobles with a Title, an Office and other cards, such as Bishops, Mercenaries, and Ships. At the beginning of your turn, you draw a card from the Event deck, and all players follow its instructions. During your turn, you may move your Noble pieces, fight battles, and conduct sieges. You may also have the opportunity to call Parliament to gain the benefit of additional Titles and Offices, and perhaps the chance to crown a new King. At the end of your turn, you draw from the Crown deck, which may enable you to add a new Noble to your Faction or increase the power of a Noble already in play.
