Description Edit | History

The Kingdom is in chaos. The King lies dead without an heir, slain by a villainous hand. Will a leader rise up and rally the support of the people, or will the shadow of anarchy spread over the land?

In Warrior Knights, each player takes on the role of a Baron vying for control of the Kingdom. Each Baron commands four faithful Nobles who lead his armies into battle. Each Baron seeks to capture cities in order to gain Influence (victory points), which is used to measure his claim to the throne. Barons may also seek to gain advantage by increasing their income, gathering Votes to use at the Assembly, or by amassing Faith, which can be used to gain a measure of control over chance events. Only through cunning strategy and careful diplomacy can a Baron hope to attain victory.

Warrior Knights has a very clever mechanic. Each player has a selection of tasks they can accomplish each turn, such as move & attack, gain political strength, hire mercenaries, and gain religious faith. Only 6 of these are done in any turn. Each player selects 2 tasks for each 1/3 of the game turn. The task cards are then shuffled with all the other players. So each player doesn't know the exact order of play, only which two tasks they will perform in each 1/3 of the game turn.

In addition, the game has four special phases that are triggered based on how frequently players are choosing a particular task. Collecting taxes individually, once done often enough, will trigger a taxation phase. Players collecting political power trigger a session of Parliment. When enough players want to hire mercenaries, there is an auction for their services. The flipside is that the more mercenaries that are hired, the more often they want to be paid in the wages phase.

The mixing of these two clever mechanics, choosing tasks but performing them in a random order and triggering the 4 special phases at somewhat unpredictable times makes for a tense game. Players can often be caught short of cash if wages are demanded more frequently than taxes are collected. If the other players all collect political influence, a Parliment might be called when one or two players has only a single vote. These elements of variable turn orders and variable phases give the game a highly addictive quality.

4 Warrior Knights: National uprising
Semicooperative version for up to 5 players, where the sixth fation is played by a non-player system. Unlike in the original game, in this variant the King of the imaginary realm set up by WK is not dead. Instead, there has been a national uprising against the King that has completely torn the Realm. The King’s armies, defeated by the civil forces that have appeared all over the country, have fled the fields of battle and mustered in the King’s Castle, from where they plan to recover control of the territory. Cities, led by majors and other representatives, have declared themselves independent and are beginning to establish small Republics and city states ruled by city councils. The former colonies have gone a similar process. All influence overseas has been lost. Players still play...

8 Variantes Cooperativas y Solitarias para WK
Nueva versión en la que se aclara un poco más el mecanismo de las batallas contra los Caballeros Extranjeros. Las reglas básicamente no cambian, cambia su manera de explicarlas. Si alguien se anima a traducirlo todo al yanqui, está invitado a una birra (sólo una, ¿eh?
