PKR1300: Rurik: Dawn Of Kiev Board Game is Out of Stock

Rurik: Dawn of Kiev is a euro-style realm building game set in an 11th century Eastern European kingdom. It features area control, resource management, and a new game mechanic - "auction programming."

Who Will Claim the Throne?

You play as a potential successor to the throne following the death of your father, Vladimir the Great, in 1015. Although warfare seems to be the easiest path to success, the people value a ruler who leads well in a variety of endeavors. Your claim to the throne depends on how well you manage the help of your troops and advisors.

What is Auction Programming?

In Rurik, players openly bid for actions with their advisors. Stronger advisors earn greater benefits at the cost of performing their action later than other players. Conversely, weaker advisors earn lesser benefits but perform their action quickly. After all advisors are placed, players take turns resolving their lowest numbered advisor, regardless of which action column it is on, and performing the action.

Multiple Paths to Victory

Establish your legacy by constructing buildings and performing great deeds or pursue your own agenda by ruling large areas of land and collecting tribute. Will you win over the hearts of the people to become the next ruler of Kievan Rus?

Cultural Heritage

Rurik brings to life the ancient culture of Kievan Rus - a medieval empire to which many Eastern Europeans trace their roots - with game design by Russian designer Stanislav Kordonskiy and illustrations by Ukrainian artist Yaroslav Radeckyi.

Dynamic Solo Mode

Rurik features an engaging single player experience with 4 levels of difficulty. The AI changes between 3 modes throughout the game and within each mode has a different approach to bidding and resolving actions. The dynamic automa opponent only reveals one bid at a time so you are never quite sure how it will play!
