From the campaign:
My King, the time has come. Your day is now. Are you ready to make your mark on History?
Free League Publishing and Paradox Interactive are proud to present Crusader Kings - The Board Game, based on the acclaimed grand strategy computer game. In this game, 3-5 players lead the historical dynasties of medieval Europe to triumph - or downfall.
You are a Crusader King, striving for wealth and power across the continent. Across generations. Reshape the history of medieval Europe in your own image - if only that dimwitted son of yours set to inherit the throne doesn't spoil your grand plans...
The campaign's well and over 3x funded with still 29 days to go.
