Asyncron games, FIEF's french editor, organized a life-sized session of Fief, during the Festival du Prieuré convention, July 2 & 3, at Saint Remy la Varennes,France.


The concept :

18 players, each one playing one of the 18 characters of FIEF instead of one family. Each players score individual points depending on his personnal fullfilments, but thanks to other family members' fullfilments as well.
There were two goals in the game : to be the best individual player and make your family win.

I a character die, he will come back in play next turn, potentially in another family.

This was a betatest session.
We had enough time to play 2 games, but not to end the second one.

We had a lot of fun ! It was a great experience.

Here are some pictures :


What a great place for such a game !


the team is setting the game in the capitular room of the priory.
Each family has its own table with its color.


Most of players & team


Special & unique giant map with all expansions printed !


Real time scoring


King's shadow cool


The queen : "We have to choose, it is necessary to cut in the deep !"
The prince : "Mom, mom, let me do it !!!!"


Here we are !

Amazing I loved that. Did you manage to put in play all the Lords/Ladies? Did you just play the game alternating turns on the map or also roleplayed the heck out of it?

We didn't find 6 women to play ladies roles, it's why Sabine and Melusine played.
But all 18 roles were played.

The basic game was Fief normal gameplay, but with free roleplay.

We made processions through the booths of convention for major events :
weddings, crownings ... with the help of an Action Role Playing Game association.
So this was additionnal entertainments for convention, and everybody loved it !

Simply amazing stuff! wowwowwow

Three questions:

1) How long did the finished game take and how long would the unfinished one (probably) have taken? How many umpires were needed, if any?

2) Any other significant rules changes, e.g. game end?

3) Who or what took that bite out of the king's shadow?! laugh

1) The first game lasted 7 hours.

The second one lasted 7 hours as well and would have taken around 1 hour more.

2) There are few rules modifications. They are mainly adaptations about control rules (family vs. player) as well as the set up (number of cards, troops, Lords placement...)
