The king lies weakened on his deathbed. His Majesty has but days to live, and has failed to produce an heir. Any of the local barons could be next in line, as long as they are able to gain the approval of the people. Each has set off on a heroic campaign around the kingdom. They vie for fame, for glory, and for the crown!
For Crown & Kingdom is a strategy game in which players travel around the kingdom in an attempt to add support tokens to each region. Players must balance actions between their five pawns — Baron, Merchant, Thief, Knight, and Scholar — in order to optimize their positions and treasuries. A modular board adjusts to fit 2-4 players, and provides different layouts every time you play.
