Managing a kingdom is hard. There’s all sorts of issues of every manner always cropping up. In order to keep order and peace, the queen has requested that the Guildmasters of the different heroic orders in Tessandor pick from among their numbers those would would best work at fixing each issue. That’s the story behind By Order of the Queen, a new board game up on Kickstarter.
From the campaign:
By Order of the Queen is a 2-4 player cooperative fantasy RPG-lite board game that plays in 90-120 minutes. Players take on the role of a Guildmaster of the kingdom of Tessandor. There are so many heroes wanting to help the Queen that the guilds have been tasked with assigning heroes to protect the Kingdom as they see fit.
Players will draw a hand of heroes and take turns assigning them to quests, combat, or completing the orders of the Queen. As time passes the kingdom falls further into darkness, so players must work together to complete the Queen’s perfect plan to secure Tessandor’s future.
The Kickstarter campaign is about 3/4 of the way to their goal with still 30 days left to go.
