Description Edit | History

"Soldier King is a game for two to four players covering the war of succession in a leaderless empire. Each player controls one army and must struggle through diplomacy and conquest to capture a majority of the Imperial electoral cities, thus assuring his election as Emperor."

"Movement of armies is from point to point along roads and waterways, thus emphasizing the key role played by lines of communications in the 1700's, the age of the soldier kings. Each turn covers one season of campaigning, and each unit presents 10,000-20,000 troops. Infantry, light cavalry and heavy cavalry units perform their own key rols in battle, and a system of promoting units after battles allows for a gradual improvement of armies from green levies to battle-hardened guards" (from box back)

Containing:
two 17x22 maps, 320 die cut counters, rules & 2 dice

More Information Edit | History

"When the old Emperor died without issue, four claimants jostled for the Crimson Throne. From the east came the Arcadian King Ronalf, from the west King Zog of Hrvastka, from the south the regiments of Leonardo of Bravance, and from the wind-swept north the touch Argozian Troopers of King Ludwig. The four sovereigns met in the fertile heartland of the Empire, and began their intricate dance of diplomacy, intrigue, and death." (text from box back)

The mechanism of this game was derived largely from A House Divided. It is further distinguished with having up to 4 Players vying upon achieving their Kingdom. They'll attempt to accomplish this through Diplomatic accord, as well with outright blatant threat! There are some new types or *twists* added, of which bring out the intended purpose of reflecting the Hypothetical setting for which it represented. Fans of AHD may want to delve into this as well, or quite the many another that this method have also provided.
