war of kings

War of Kings is an epic level game combining the resource management of a civilization building game with the strategy and combat of an area control game. The king has died, and players represent leading warlords vying for supremacy, and ultimately the throne. War of Kings plays 2-6 players and features gorgeous artwork and miniatures. Players take turns concurrently so there’s no downtime. Maneuver your troops to capture enemy fortresses or unleash the NPC maurading horde on unsuspecting victims. War of Kings is on Kickstarter now and has already passed its funding goal. The base pledge level for a copy of the game is $69.
