    PATRON: Looking for the royal treatment? We are commissioning twenty high-end "legacy" editions of The Duke from one of the industry's master carpentry shops (Geek Chic! If you don't know their work, check them out at geekchichq.com). We will release only twelve publicly. All pieces are laser engraved in choice hardwoods, hand-stained to bring out the grain, and displayed in a beautiful hardwood case. Game surface and bags are tooled in finished leather. You will also get two regular editions of the game for the commoners to enjoy. Your name will be added to the genealogy tree on the back of the regular gameboard (early pledges get the higher noble rank) and you will also be named in the rulebook as a Patron of the arts! Domestic and international shipping included.
