Long Live The King
From the Publisher...
The king is dead... Finally! Through a skillful combination of live-action intrigue and strategic use of resources, you might become the next ruler of the land. Long Live the King is a live-action strategy game for 5 or more players.
Long Live the King is a dynamic game that marries the diabolical treachery and scheming of the best strategic board and card games with the pomp and circumstance of the most elaborate live-action games. In the role of an ailing king, the gamemaster participates in the roleplaying while moderating the rules.
Up to seven other major players, including a young queen, a haughty archbishop and a wily ambassador, vie to place themselves in positions to rule the kingdom when the king finally keels over. Dozens of minor roles allow the game to be as large and elaborate as you desire. Or just keep it small... and cut-throat.
Long Live the King (LLK) is a strategic roleplaying game. Or maybe it's a live-action strategy game. Call it either one. It's a strategy game with cards, but instead of sitting at a table in the tradition of typical games, you actually walk around and act the role of a character in the court of the dying king. The goal is to have fun in your role, but also to become the new ruler of the kingdom (you don't really want the king to live very long!).
Game Contents - The Long Live the King game box includes a 32-page rulebook, character portfolios for the seven major characters, coins of the realm, and 200 cards divided into six different types (Mobilization Cards, Rebellion Cards, Decision Cards, Health Cards, Status Cards, and Intrigue Cards) to cover many aspects of strategic play.
