Final Frontier Games would like to announce Rise to Nobility, “a 1-5 player worker placement game set in a beautiful fantasy world.” Rise to Nobility is a dice-based worker placement game set in The Five Realms, the same fantasy world as Cavern Tavern. The game features a strongly thematic engine-building mechanic and many paths to victory.
The following quote from the game’s Kickstarter page describes the basic mechanics of the game and what makes it unique:
“At the beginning of each round, every player rolls 5 dice that represent their available actions in the game. The locations in the city have requirements for certain dice values…The challenging thing is that the total value of dice each player can use during the round is determined by their reputation in the city. Players start with 9 reputation and can increase or decrease their reputation by taking certain actions in the city. With numerous options for spending their dice, players will need to carefully plan their strategy and prioritize their actions.
Each player takes on the role of a landowner with a unique ability. Your goal is to rise from anonymity to the rank of lord. At the end of 10 rounds, the player with the most victory points takes over the head seat at the Stone Council and wins the game.”
Rise to Nobility is for 2-5 players ages 13 and up and plays in 25 minutes/player. For more information, visit the game’s Kickstarter page.
