2-4 player resource gathering strategy war board game
Hello brave conqueror I would like to welcome you to my first board game 4 Kingdoms This is a 2-4 player strategy game where your goal is to win the most games out of 10 rounds but first let me set the scene of this game
The king of NorthRnd has recently died leaving no next of kin so the land became divided into 4 kingdoms. The 4 rulers of the kingdoms came together to try and settle who would be the next king of NorthRnd. A massive war broke out, these battles lasted for 10 years and 1 ruler was crowned king. You the players take the role as one of these kingdoms, spend your resources wisely to overpower your opponents in this thrilling, turn base strategy game. Beware nasty surprises may rise from the ashes to where no one is safe!
First decide who goes first. That player rolls the 5 gold coloured D12 dice to see how much gold they can spend. The dice values are shown on the board, as shown below
you start with gold resource as you will need to buy access to leather, iron and diamond resources and also you start with level 1 as again you need to buy levels 2 and 3.
Once all players have rolled, you now decide the units you want to buy (you must buy a minimum of two units each round)
All prices are located on the shopping cards.
Make sure to save resources for the start of the next round this is when you may buy more dice rolls, higher resource level or new resources.
When placing your units on the board they can start anywhere in your brown box as shown below
Once all players have built their armies you can start the war.
Start by dealing 3 bonus cards to each player (if a player is given a play straight away card, these are exchanged in the card deck, after this the deck is reshuffled )
The first player rolls 1 of their dice, whatever number they roll this is the number of squares each of their units can move (so if player 1 rolls a 4 all their units may move up to 4 squares) The player ends their turn by taking a card.
You can’t attack any player or play any bonus cards on their first turn. All range units MUST leave their brown area first before they can fire.
Once a players unit is in range of another players unit they may attack.
Both players roll 1 of their dice.
If attacker’s roll is higher they win. They roll again to try and kill that unit by rolling its number (that is shown on the shopping card)
If the defender's roll is higher or the same as the attacker they win and are safe for now.
There are many different bonus cards that you can use to change the course of the game, You take a new bouns card once you are happy with all your moves and have completed your attacks (you can only play 1 card a turn and you may not play a card on your first turn)
Winning the battle
A player wins when all other players units have been defeated. The winner keeps all surviving units to use in the next battle (you must buy a minimum of 2 more units in the next round) all bonus card are handed back in and the deck reshuffled (make sure to add your resources first.)
Beginning of next round
Now that 1 player has won a battle you need to roll for resources again, this is where you decide if you want to buy different resources, higher levels of resources or more dice rolls.
To buy level 1 of any resource cost 5gold
To buy level 2 of any resource cost 10gold plus 5 of that resource
(if you want gold level 2 that would cost 15gold or leather level 2 cost 10gold and 5leather)
To buy level 3 of any resource cost 30gold plus 10 of that resource
To buy more dice rolls cost 7gold, after you own 10 rolls it cost 10gold
Now you roll for resources again but you can choose which dice you wish to roll depending on what resources you have unlocked and how many rolls you have E.G (you have 7 rolls and have iron unlocked and decide to roll 3 in gold and 4 in iron, this must be done before any dice rolled)
Gold= golden dice / Leather= brown dice / Iron= white dice / Diamond= blue dice
