The Elven king is dead, and players are competing to become the next king. This game is similar in nature to Elfenroads/Elfenland in that players try to visit as many cities as possible using optimal transportation cards; what's different is that the lay of the land is also dictated by card play. Other players may interfere with your journey through the use of thieves, obstacles, and sea serpents.
Player place mats for King of the Elves. These mats have a separate mat for each or the colors, a place holder for the journey cards, envoy card, gold, and player tokens. Each of the village card spots also has a reminder for the cards that can be played on it. There is also a play phase walk through with the cost associated with the actions.
A handy little reference sheet: rules synopsis on one side, card list on the other. Print this out on a blank page, flip the page end-for-end and print again. Then cut on the solid red lines, fold over on the dotted red line, and you've two double-sided reference sheets!
