Did you miss out on the campaign? Don´t worry. Head on over to Killtheking.no and we will help you pre order your copy of the game!
Kill the King is a strategic board game where two players each control an opposing army. One player attacks a castle while the other player try to defend it and prevent the attackers from killing the king. The attackers must hurry because the defenders will soon be reinforced by their own cavalry who hopefully will return to save the day.
You can also play two alternate game modes of Kill the King in addition to the normal mode. The first is a standard battle between the two players armies on the field outside the castle walls. The second is a giga mode of the normal mode where you combine two* game boards. One player defends the combined castle of the two game boards, while two players try to attack the castle from opposing sides, adding multiple fronts to the tactical decisions.
The variety of game modes, army placement and combination of soldiers and leaders results in massive replay ability.
* You need two copies of the game to play the giga mode version.

The more people that pledge for copies of Kill the King, the cheaper they are to produce. So if we reach these goals we can add more cool things to the game with no extra costs. All stretch goals will be included in every copy of Kill the King.
We've only revealed a few of the different stretch goals that we have planned. We will reveal more as the campaign unfolds.
The graphical design of the unlocked tiles may change in the complete version.
The game will be EU, US, NORWAY and AUSTRALIA/NEW ZEALAND - FRIENDLY
The game is produced in China and bulk shipped to the UK and to Norway before being distributed to individual backers. This means that you as a backer should not have to care about customs if you live in Norway, US, EU, Australia or New Zealand.
Since we are a Norwegian company, all our prices on Kickstarter have to be in Norwegian currency. The exchange rate may change a bit over time. The shipping costs listed above are therefore estimates. The shipping cost will automatically be added when you pledge!
We will be working with Game Quest to individually ship all the games around the world.
We really have worked hard to keep the cost of delivery down to the minimum so that it is as easy as possible for you to get a copy of the game.
* We forgot Iceland when we made shipping on the pledges. That means if you live in Iceland you either choose Austria, Denmark, France or Spain when you select you shipping options to get the correct shipping cost. If you come from Iceland, please send me a message when you have backed or have any question. Sorry for the error.
If you are a retailer or own a game store and are interested in buying multiple copies (6 minimum) please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Retailers will be verified.
The game design is complete, the images are licensed and the art is ready to send to print as soon as we reach our funding goal. It has been blind playtested and adjusted so that every play through and situation is properly balanced. Thank you to all our play testers, we could not have done it without you.

Risks and challenges
Risks and challenges
There are few risks involved in our project. Kill the King is completely designed and is ready to print. No extra time will be needed for development or design.
We have been working with our manufacturer for the past year to ensure that you will receive a high quality game.Everyone who has tested our prototypes has commented on the high quality of the components. We are confident that you will be delighted with the game and are ready to proceed with production as soon as the Kickstarter ends.
The biggest risks to thisproject are the things beyond our control: Shiping delays and any fluctuation in exchange rates. We have tried to adopt a 'worst case' scenario in terms of the estimated delivery times in case anything happens.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
