It would seem as things aren’t going so well for you. You’ve had everything you own taken away and have been banished to a strange land. You’ve got a couple shillings in your pocket, but not much more in order to start your new life. You and the others that have been banished along with you will need to carve out your own living. Of course, just scraping by isn’t good enough. You want to get as high of a station as you can. That’s the story behind Feudum, a new resource management board game up on Kickstarter.
In the game, players will be in control of several medieval characters (like a farmer or monk) that will roam the countryside doing various tasks such as tending a farm, taxing a town, or taking over outposts. This allows you several different strategies that can gain you power in the game. That power will get you Veneration Points. The player with the most of these at the end of five epochs will be the winner.
The Kickstarter campaign just made it over their funding goal earlier today and are well on their way to stretch goals. It’s set to run for another 35 days.
