The king is dead! Long live the new... err... what? You say that there's no one in the line of succession to take the throne next? Well... crap. That's going to put a damper on things. Well, thankfully, there's the old king's advisors. They'll be able to help run the country while a new king is found. Of course, those advisors wouldn't have any sort of ulterior motives or hidden agendas, right? Wrong! And that's just what you'll be playing out in Court of Kings, a new game by Pawnjoker Games up on Kickstarter now.
In the game, players take on the role of advisors of the late king. It is up to you and the others to keep the country going in the king's absence. As new problems arise, you'll discuss various outcomes, each of which can help or hurt your own, personal agenda. But you'll have to be wary. If the country falls to turmoil, nobody will benefit from that. Be the first one to maneuver the kingdom to your side and you'll be the new throne-sitter.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. It's set to go for another 25 days.
