Darkness is spreading across the realm. An ancient and long-forgotten presence has summoned dark forces to do its evil bidding. In response, the King has assembled his finest champions to defend Monarch City and defeat the oncoming hordes. The situation is desperate, and you and your fellow champions, working together, are the ealm's final hope.

Defenders of the Realm is a fantasy board game in which 1-4 players, playing cooperatively, each take a role as one of the King's Champions (Barbarian, Cleric, Dwarf, Eagle Rider, Paladin, Ranger, Rogue, and Sorcerer). They heed the King's call to defend the realm, which is under siege from the forces of Orc, Dragon, Undead, and Demon.

Each race has different combat abilities and special powers: The Orcs are easy to defeat but multiply quickly and can overrun the realm if not kept in check, the Dragons are ferocious fighters and difficult to beat, the Undead cause Terror, and the Demons taint the land quickly. You must keep enemy troops and their generals out of Monarch City while at the same time defending the countryside and holding the dark forces at bay. Your name will be mentioned in bard's tales for years to come if you can strike down an enemy general, but recognize, brave champion, that there is no time to rest when a general is defeated. Word of a general's defeat travels fast, and the remaining generals literally double their efforts and push even harder to achieve their goal.the capture and destruction of Monarch City!

  • Yeah, this is the exact same game as Pandemic. Only it takes longer, and is much harder, also more complicated to explain.I honestly would rather just play Pandemic, but this does have theme going for it, though I think Pandemic's theme is very good too.
  • My first play with 4 left me pretty "meh" about it. That said, I would like to play it some more before, perhaps with some more experience players. I want to like it, because big plastic dragons.SOLD, October 2014
