Inside the War of Kings game box, you will find everything you need for up to a 6 player game. This medieval strategy board game is packed with components.
Here is a quick video to show you exactly what you will find when you open a War of Kings box:
Simultaneous Play – All 6 players collect resources, trade, recruit armies, construct settlements, and fortify their kingdom simultaneously. This reduces the wait between turns, keeps the game fresh, and creates an exciting gaming atmosphere.
The Maladorian Marauders – A card-based mechanic lets the players take control of a non-player horde and wreak havoc on their neighbors. From Jason, at iSlayTheDragon: “Simply put, this mechanic alone is worth the investment into this game.“
Minimal Set-Up Time – The game can be set up in just minutes. There are no boards to randomize or decisions to anguish over before play can begin. Nevertheless, the advanced game play creates a unique experience every time.
Active Combat – The combat system in War of Kings engages both the attacking and defending player. The custom combat dice are intuitive, and everyone at the table will be cheering on the combatants.
Balance – War of Kings strikes a balance between military conquest and the management of your kingdom’s economy. Both will be necessary to conquer the land of Arowyth.
Awesome Miniatures – War of Kings features three levels of settlements that can be defended by placing one of three levels of fortifications around it. All are hand-sculpted specifically for War of Kings.
