Description Edit | History

The aim is to go around the game board until you've found the "Key treasure card" plus one more treasure card and then escape the kingdom. You may also steal treasures from the other players.

From the beginning you have 8 different equipment cards, which you need to use to pass traps or defeat monsters. Sometimes you might lose 1 or more of your pieces of equipment, but there's a possibility to get them back at a couple of places on the board.

The most remarkable thing about this game is that the board is in 6 parts, connected with roads in many combinations, The only way of reaching two of the parts is by jumping into one of the whirlpools in the middle of the board, This allows the board to be folded in or out to another board. There are rules to handle the other players if they get caught on the folded board.

5 Key To The Kingdom variant rules
Latest version, amended to correct typos
English
2011-09-08
8 Advanced Rules
Advanced Rules - this variant allows you to select from six character classes, implements a simple combat system, and gives powers to the treasures. You need to make up some character cards to keep track of health points. I made up some of my own which look pretty nice. I can share them if you're interested.
