Majesty: For the Crown
Enter the Middle Ages and recruit your loyal subjects. In this land, whoever has the most gold wears the crown.
The crown is up for grabs to whoever can build the richest domain and seize it from their rivals. It’ll take a whole kingdom’s worth of people to accomplish this monumental task. Rally your citizens, grow your power, and reign supreme in Majesty: For the Realm, a game of strategically selecting who you want to work your lands set during the Middle Ages. Each game, you recruit characters to perform jobs that generate gold for your kingdom. Some characters work better with others, opening many paths to victory. Whether you choose to be a silver-tongued monarch who rules with mercy, or an iron-fisted tyrant who crushes their rivals, the fate of the land rests with you.
From the humble Miller to the elegant Noble, all of your loyal subjects will play a decisive role in your new kingdom. Some might grow the food needed to feed your many subjects, while others lead attacks on other kingdoms and weaken your rivals. They all help generate gold in their own way, but your decisions will determine how well they work together. It is up to you to find the combination that helps your kingdom rise while stymying your opponents’ efforts. Raise your banners, fill your coffers, and stake your claim for the realm!
Kingsburg: Second Edition
The classic is back, and includes the essential To Forge a Realm expansion!
The game of Kingsburg takes place over five years, a total of 20 turns. In every year, there are three production seasons for collecting resources, building structures, and training troops. Every fourth turn is the winter, in which all the players must fight an invading army. Each player must face the invaders, so this is not a cooperative game.
The resources to build structures and train troops are collected by influencing the advisers in the King’s Council. Players place their influence dice on members of the Council, and each adviser awards different resources or allocate soldiers, victory points, and other advantages to the player who was able to influence that adviser for the current turn. The player with the lowest influence dice sum is the first to choose where to spend their influence; this acts as a way of balancing poor dice rolling. Even with a very unlucky roll, a clever player can still come out from the Council with a good number of resources and/or soldiers.
At the end of five years, the player who best developed their assigned territory and most pleased the King through the Council wins.
Battle for Rokugan
Conquer the realm and bring honor to your clan in Battle for Rokugan! This turn-based strategy game of conquest and mayhem puts players in the role of Rokugan daimyō struggling for control over the rich land of the Emerald Empire. Leaders must balance their resources, plan their attacks, and outwit their enemies to ensure their clan’s victory. The land is there for the taking. The most honorable daimyō will win the day!
Rokugan is a land filled with spirits, beauty, and strife. Seven great clans inhabit this diverse realm, ever loyal to the Emperor, but ever fighting for dominance among themselves. As they battle for supremacy, the daimyōs who lead their people must use all their cunning and skill to gather information, anticipate their opponent’s actions, and lay battle plans that will lead them to victory. Only one can prove themselves worthy enough to become the true voice of this land and usher Rokugan into an age of prosperity. Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Battle for Rokugan, a new strategic board game based in the Legend of the Five Rings universe!
Battle for Rokugan puts two to five players in the roles of Rokugani daimyō fighting for territory in the early days of the Emerald Empire. The beautifully illustrated game board transports players to this new world that is ripe for the taking. The land of Rokugan is divided into territories that belong to each of the seven honorable clans: Crab, Crane, Dragon, Phoenix, Lion, Scorpion, and Unicorn, that have been battling for dominance since their foundation by the Kami. Past the safety of these provinces’ walls lay several unclaimed territories, including the mysterious Shadowlands that beckon to those who desire power no matter the cost. The players’ ultimate goal is to conquer as many of Rokugan’s provinces as possible to gain honor for their clan and prove that their people are truly superior, and the only clan fit to guide the Empire.
Mid-22nd century, after 300 years of unconsciousness, the water rising engulfs the last emerged lands. Fighting for their lives, the survivor’s settlements must remain above the sea level. You live in the Otys colony and you must retrieve the past civilizations debris in the depths to build the future of humanity.
Your diver’s team is trained to bring up the most useful materials remaining in the depths. You need to use them wisely to fulfill the contracts offered by the Colony and thus obtain more notoriety than your contenders. Your divers lay at different depths; it is up to you to best match their special abilities with the bonuses offered by the Colony. But beware! Your diver’s oxygen is limited, and as soon as they have accomplished their mission, they must go up to the surface. Try to manage all the parameters of your team in a profitable way, so the Colony will reward you more than it will the others!
Otys is an optimization and development game co-published by Pearl Games and Libellud. Optimize your game in order to match the depth of your divers, their special abilities and the Colony bonuses. That is how you will supply the best contracts and win.
The future is built from the past…
In Otys, each player has a team of divers and must use them to take actions, retrieve items, and complete objectives. The divers are stacked in a column on the player’s individual game board, and some of them are next to depth gauges that read 1-5.
On a turn, a player chooses an available depth gauge on their individual board, then carries out the action at that same depth on the shared game board, then takes the action for their diver at that depth. Afterward that diver moves to the surface, pushing down all the other divers in the queue. That depth gauge is placed at the bottom of the player’s board, and they return to the player’s board to be chosen again only when that player’s gauge meter is full. Initially a player must play all six of their gauges before getting any back, but they can improve their meter so that it takes fewer gauges to fill, thereby giving them more choices for their actions.
As divers obtain items, those items are kept at the appropriate depth on a player’s board, and when a player has the needed items together at the same depth, they can claim one of the shared objectives revealed on the table or one of their personal objectives (if they’ve taken any). Players are racing to score 18 points first in order to win the game.

The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game – The Dungeons of Cirith Gurat
“The tower of Cirith Gurat rose higher as the caravan drove towards the gate. Not as tall or mighty as Minas Ithil, it was still of Númenórean design, built after the fall of Sauron when Gondor kept watch on the land of Mordor.”
–The Dungeons of Cirith Gurat
The Dungeons of Cirith Gurat, the fifth Adventure Pack in the Haradrim cycle for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, finds several of Middle-earth’s greatest heroes hundreds of miles from home, traveling through the hostile realm of Harad. They have crossed deserts, tamed Mûmakil, fled from Orcs on Wargs, and tunneled through a den of giant spiders.
For much of their homeward journey, the heroes have been accompanied and assisted by the small band of Haradrim. Together, they have survived the perils of Harad’s jungles and deserts, so when the heroes learn that many of their allies’ tribesmen are being held prisoner in the “Iron Pass” of Cirith Gurat, the heroes don’t hesitate to volunteer their swords. Their friends will be freed.
While the scenario from The Dungeons of Cirith Gurat leads your heroes deep into one of the Dark Lord’s prisons, its player cards arm you for the battles to come. Once you spring your allies from prison, you’ll need to fight your way free of Orc jailors and pursuers, and you’ll be happy for the assistance of the Adventure Pack’s new Weapons, Warriors, and events.
