The king is dead! Well, that's gonna make things difficult. Oh, and there's no immediate heir to the throne. That's going to make things even more difficult. However, in the chaos, the kingdom still has to be run and a new king has to be found. However, such times also offer opportunities for those with their own agendas. The former king's advisors all had their own plots and plans, and what better time to try and move some of those forward? That's the story behind Court of Kings, a new game that's up on Kickstarter now.
In the game, players take on the role of advisors to the late king. Each one has their own goals and agendas that they are looking to push forward during the chaotic time the kingdom is going through. However, each motion put forward will have both positive and negative effects on the kingdom. Too many negatives and the whole kingdom will fall to ruin. So you have to be careful about what legislation you pass. Also, a new king will eventually be chosen. Then, it'll be their word as law. Get as many of your own bills passed while maintaining a delicate balance of chaos and order.
The Kickstarter campaign's up and running now and is set to go for another 29 days.
