Intrigue. Treachery. Power.
You are a Lord in the court of King Henry VIII in this worker-placement Eurogame for 2 to 4 players. Available in English and German language editions.
Position your courtiers in audience chambers that each grant you access to a variety of game actions. You must be careful though because there are a limited number of seats in each chamber and if no player chooses to have their lord attend the chamber, then no actions in that chamber may be used.
Use actions to collect diplomatic resources to maneuver your Courtiers in the Throne Room and gather Court Tokens for Prestige (Victory Points). Every game uses two different scoring cards that will change how Court Tokens and your Courtiers’ positions in the court grant Prestige.
Reach the head of the court to gain positions of power and place the position’s ring on a finger of your player screen.
The placement of your rings activate a variety of special abilities that enhance the actions your Courtiers can take in the Audience Chambers. You must be vigilant though, for your positions and rings can be stolen by other players.
Play through a variety of diverse scenarios that each have their own set of special rules. The scenarios combined with the variable scoring cards make every game feel different with unique strategies that you will need to pursue to win.
Full reviewer gameplay videos that explain the game in detail, plus a copy of the rule book, are available below.

Risks and challenges
Academy Games' first six Kickstarter projects: '1775 - Rebellion', 'Freedom - The Underground Railroad', 'Fief - France 1429', 'Mare Nostrum - Empires,' '878 Vikings,' and 'Agents of Mayhem: Pride of Babylon' were all very successful.
Our growing success with each new project brought about new challenges, from which we have learned a lot. Our last three projects 'Mare Nostrum - Empires,' '878 Vikings,' and 'Agents of Mayhem' were so successful that we unlocked all of our stretch goals.
All stretch goals and game expansions have already been fully developed and playtested. All artwork is finalized and manpower has been scheduled and set aside to make sure that Tudor will ship in a timely manner.
Our goal is to deliver Tudor in October 2018. Of course, if there are any delays, we will share that information here at Kickstarter.
We appreciate your Kickstarter support, which allows us to continue to create unique and high-quality games. We could not offer such high-quality games without your support and love for the hobby.
