Welcome to Kingdoms. The game where you must build your evil empire before other demon lords can build theirs.
Kingdoms is a very social game that encourages interaction between players and is best suited for 4 players although 2 players can still have a lot of fun. If you like building up your strength while causing you opponents a lot of trouble then this is the game for you.
Each player starts with 1000 gold, 1000 resources and a blueprint of their kingdom which shows the buildings they need to construct in order to win the game. To construct buildings you need money, resources and minions.
The rules of play are simple. Each turn a player draws a card and performs an action such as constructing a building, buying resources from the bank, or sending a cat with fleas into a rival kingdom.
Each turn you are faced with the choice of building up your kingdom or ruining someone else's. Be wary of players forming secret alliances.
However its not all about being mean to each other, the card pool contains a lot of nasty surpises too. Watch out for Demonic health Inspectors, drunken Aunties and your new ‘uncles’ dropping by, and various unpleasant diseases coming your way.
Then there are your Minions. Everybody needs minions, it’s just a pity they are an unpredictable and fickle lot. Minions construct your buildings for you and generally moan a lot of the time. ‘We are bored!’ they cry so you build them a den of iniquity. They are still not happy. ‘We are lonely!’ so you build them a House of ill repute. They are never satisfied. Good job you can smite a few now and again to keep them in line
Mess with you opponents plans. Tempt their minions to your kingdom or infect them with a plague or even send in a serial killer to thin the herd.
