The Land of Lo'en is vast. Its Kingdoms and Guilds are populated by Humans, Elves, Dwarves, Goblins, Kobolds, Trolls, and of course, the Dragons. The Dragon King is dead now and you, as one of his many overlooked offspring, have decided that it's time for a change. Can you raise the funds to bribe the dragon clans to join your coup and the food to keep them? Can your strength convince the citizens of Lo'en to support your claim to the throne? Can your followers influence the diverse Kingdoms' many Guilds and Clan Houses, and use their powerful resources to aid your cause? Your siblings have dynastic plans of their own and the dead King's influence, though weakening, must still be reckoned with. There will be many obstacles to surmount in your quest to claim the Dragon Throne. Princes of the Dragon Throne is an area control and resource management board game that uses deck building as a driver for the other game elements. Players select cards from a continually changing pool of opportunities to build a unique deck of recruits. Players manage resources to support their uprising, and use the influence of their recruits to gain control of the various Guilds of the Kingdoms, which in turn gives them special abilities to further their cause.
