Throughout history, many kings have put forth laws and rules that, well, didn't go over so well with the general populace. Or, one kingdom has decided that the one next door looks pretty nice, and so they decide to take it for themselves. Either way, a monarch may end up being forced back to their own castle with the last of the defenders looking to protect their sovereign from attacking forces. That's what's happening in Kill the King, a new board game up on Kickstarter.
One player takes on the role of attacker, looking to infiltrate their way into the castle and, well, kill the king. The other player is doing everything in their power to keep the attackers at bay. The attackers can't just sit back and wait, though, as the defenders have reinforcements in the form of cavalry on the way. With strategy, tactics, and a bit of luck, your side will be victorious.
The campaign is already over its funding goal, so it's on to breaking through stretch goals for the next 27 days.
