We are thrilled to announce the development of brand new Ortus Regni Parchment neoprene playmats! These striking playmats are sized at 24 by 14 inches in order to accommodate the cards that create your Earldom.
Fours years ago Jon Sudbury launched Ortus Regni, a deck design strategy card game, which we are honoring with the release of parchment styled playmats using art from the game. Despite an unsuccessful kickstarter launch in 2014, Ortus Regni has become an underground hit due to its authentic iconographic art and simple to learn, yet deep gameplay. Show your support and pledge for the core game, expansions, and playmat!
Styled after medieval manuscripts, Ortus Regni is a novel card game inspired by the late Anglo-Saxon period of English history.
Ortus Regni is a unique closed-deck, deck-design strategy card game. Each player has a complete set of 15 unique Earl deck cards, with 6 of each card available to them, to build their gameplay deck of 24 cards. Players are great Earls vying to survive and ultimately control a kingdom that will become England. The most unusual feature of Ortus Regni is its playing cards. There are 15 unique Earl deck cards. Each card has no text, no symbols, and no numbers. In fact, all of the cards in Ortus Regni are simply iconographic art. Our commitment to the look and feel of the game runs throughout its design.
Feel free to download the rulebook here.
The cards of Ortus Regni are governed by the same rules if you play a two-player duel, or a full six-player epic. Who are your opponents, how do they typically play? How many other Earls are there in the game? Are you going to play for speed and strength? Are you going to wait for an opportune moment to use political suasion to win the game? Perhaps you might try to simply outlive your opponents, or maybe you will try to conspire with the Viking horde to vanquish your rivals?
You can play the digital version of Ortus Regni now to try out the game!
Ortus Regni is LIVE on Steam. Try it out for free here!
