Back of the box:
The King is Dead... Finally!
Long Live the King is a dynamic game that marries the diabolical treachery and scheming of the best strategic board and card games with the poimp and circumstance of the most elaborate live-action games. In the role of an ailing king, the gamemaster participates int he rolepalying while moderating the rules.
Up to seven other major palyers, including a young queen, a haughty archbishop and a wily ambassador, vie to place themselves in positions to rule the kingdom when the king finally keels over. Dozens of minor roles allow the game to be as large and elaborate as you desire. Or just keep it small... and cut-throat.
This box includes: 32-page rulebook, portfolios for the seven major characters, coins of the realm, and 200 cards divided into six different types to cover many aspects of strategic play.
