Architects of the West Kingdom is a board game many of us have been waiting for. This game is the first in a new trilogy by the same designer from Raiders of the North Sea and the game is available for pre-order via Kickstarter since yesterday.
This new worker-placement game takes the player to the period of the Carolingian Empire. Players take the roles of royal architects for the king that try to impress the royal family by constructing various landmarks and buildings. You will have to collect your own resources, hire apprentices and keep a watchful eye on your workforce. These are treacherous times, rival architects will stop at nothing to slow your progress down or to even stop your constructions.
As mentioned before, that game is available for Pre-order via Kickstarter since yesterday. And, if you back the project now, you will get five special promo's that will be added for free to your Kickstarter version of the game.
This campaign was funded in only a few hours, so the game will be produced for certain. If you are interested in this game, be sure to check the Kickstarter campaign page for more information.
