Rise to Nobility Board Game Up On Kickstarter

Who wouldn't want to be nobility? You get titles and land and prestige and the tabloids following you around all over everywhere. Ok, so maybe that last bit isn't so great, but the other parts are pretty cool. In Rise to Nobility, you're looking to stop being just the head of an influential family and break into being actual nobility. You'll do this by wisely using your resources around town. After 10 rounds, the player with the most victory points will become the head of the Stone Council. The Kickstarter campaign for the game is running now.

From the campaign:
Rise to Nobility is a worker (dice) placement game set in The Five Realms, the same fantasy world as Cavern Tavern. At the beginning of each round, every player rolls 5 dice that represent their available actions in the game. The locations in the city have requirements for certain dice values.

The challenging thing is that the total value of dice each player can use during the round is determined by their reputation in the city. Players start with 9 reputation and can increase or decrease their reputation by taking certain actions in the city. With numerous options for spending their dice, players will need to carefully plan their strategy and prioritize their actions.

Each player takes on the role of a landowner with a unique ability. Your goal is to rise from anonymity to the rank of lord. At the end of 10 rounds, the player with the most victory points takes over the head seat at the Stone Council and wins the game.

The Kickstarter has already passed its funding goal, so it's on to stretch goals for the next 27 days.
