King and Assassins

315 kr

King and Assassins is an asymmetrical
fantasy game of strategy and deception for two players. One player
controls a vile king and his knightly lackeys who try to force their way
into the castle through a mob of wrathful citizens. The other player
controls the mob itself and – more importantly – three assassins who
hide among the crowd hoping to kill or stop the ruler long enough for
the people to deal with him using their bare fists. The king has only so
much time before he is overpowered by his own subjects but using guile
and swords of his guards he may be able to eliminate the assassins and
hopefully escape into the safety of his palace.

The gameplay is based upon Action Cards which show a limited number
of Action Points available to both sides. First, the king and his
knights move around the board securing their position or eliminating
dangers by pushing aside the crowd, then the assassins hidden among the
crowd prepare for their lethal strike by killing guards or making the
king's progress slower. It's up to the players to make the most of the
Action Points available in the current round. The king's player wins if
he manages to escape from the board using one of the exits or if his
knights eliminate all the assassins. The assassins win if they kill the
king by dealing him two wounds or stall him long enough so that the
Action Card deck is depleted.

Choose your strategy, hide the assassins among twelve beautifully
illustrated citizens and play two different scenarios, each with a
multitude of choices, in this simple yet rewarding game. And remember,
every familiar face may conceal a sharp blade!
