The King is Dead: Second Edition refreshes the easily accessible yet strikingly deep game from the first edition with updated design and gorgeous new art, now in a more portable format. The new edition also allows for a new game mode, featuring the capricious fay, as players enter into a stranger vision of past Britain…
The King Is Dead board game is a game of politics and power struggles set in Britain in the chaotic period following the death of King Arthur. For the good of the country, a leader must unite the Scots, Welsh, and Romano-British — not by conquest but by diplomacy.
Players are members of King Arthur’s court. Whether a loyal knight, a scheming lord, or an ambitious noblewoman, you all have one thing in common: power. As prospective leaders, each player uses their power to benefit the factions, gaining influence among their ranks. The player with the greatest influence over the most powerful faction is crowned the new ruler of Britain.
