Take on the mantle of history's most (in)famous rulers! Compete across time against Alexander the Great, Cleopatra VII, Suleiman the Magnificent, or Queen Elizabeth I, as you seek to amass the greatest fiefdom in all of history. The first player to complete a diverse fiefdom, consisting of six distinct castes of citizens, will reign supreme!
However, assembling a complete citizenry is not as simple as it sounds. As players compete to exercise influence over a fluctuating populace, rival regents will attempt to attract citizens away from where they've taken up residency, whether by allure, by force, or by treachery.
Set against a historical and multi-cultural backdrop, Regency simulates the struggle of power and control that has marked the rise and fall of the world's greatest empires. Acting as regents, players use cards out of their hand to exert influence over citizens and to perform various actions and reactions. With the addition of each new caste of citizen (including nobles, religious, military, merchants, commoners, and even brigands), new actions become available, resulting in an ever-escalating dynamic and competitive environment, until the crowning moment comes when one regent emerges supreme.
God Save the King thrusts players into the center of the conflict between warring kingdoms. The crown is threatened; the duty to take up arms falls to every living subject, whether knight, marshal, captain, footman, squire or cup-bearer. Even the Queen, herself may be called upon to give her life, that the King may be spared.
God Save the King is an abstract strategy game that can be played using a standard deck of 52 playing cards. However, the talented Inna Kozak has illustrated a custom deck of cards featuring thematically-rich characters, where every card is a unique "face card".
Simple to learn, but with layers of complexity, players must rely on wit and cunning including induction, deduction, and deception, in an attempt to seize the rival King(s) while protecting their own.
King Ragnar Lothbrok is dead! He is survived by his sons, each with competing claims to the throne. In Vikings: Ascent the enemy in front of you is less of a threat than the friend at your back. Do you have what it takes to make the ascent and claim Ragnar's crown?
Attempts by the British crown to tax the American colonies between 1765-1773 was met with resistance leading to bloodshed. In Death and Taxes players must work together to emerge with their lives and liberty intact.
