About

This is a board game for people who love vikings, fighting against evil and, most important, friends!

Who wants to be king is a highly strategic, deceptive and son of devil tabletop game. If you want to win you have to be smarter, colder and, don't forget, cooler. Players fight together against a monster but at the end only one can be a king. If you can conquer the throne for four time you win and you can make fun of other people, but if you lose….well, run away and leave the winner to put the game back all alone: everybody knows rulers are lonely people.

The game gets more and more intense until it finishes because winning is a matter of craftiness, alliances and bluff. If you used to win many poker’s game you’d probably rock this game.

The game was created by me, Claudio Melchiorri, because one night I wanted to create something new to play with my friends. I lost the first two matches, after all I’m a funny guy but I don't really have a poker face. I think this game is the best thing that I have ever started and it cannot be finished without you.

So if you like danger, monsters, swords and defeating your friends, please help me make this game a reality. Fun is guaranteed.

Hugs and conquer the throne.

Inside the deck will be only the english instructions, the other languages will be shared online

The Origin Story

Who wants to be king started during a game with my best friend, he lost and accused me to create my own rules ad hoc. Really not cool my friend! A little bit later I watched an epic episode of Vikings. Ragnar put the sword in the ground and yell to the entire village “Who wants to be king?!”. It was so epic that the idea came itself.

On a piece of paper I drew the cards (I suck in this and I know it) but no one wanted to play. They were right, it was ugly and not funny at all. So I printed and repropose the game without saying that it was my game. I was afraid of dying but everyone was happy and they really liked the game. Except for my best friend, he lost and he said again I created the rules…of course I did. Everyone laughed and in that exactly moment Who wants to be king was born.

I don't wanna lie, in the beginning it wasn't perfect. But I did corrections thanks to my friends and we laugh all the time. Kickstarter is where I hope to find a community interesting in my game. 

The game is pretty cool and super fast to play but I don’t want you to spend the all night playing with it. You should go out and stay with your friends conquering the world, like a true viking after all. But if you have some free time you could try this game, I’m sure you won’t regret. It's perfect played with a cold beer at your side!

If you like vikings, fights between best-friends and a little bit of magic, this is for you.

With love and ashes. 

I want to delivery the game in every angle of the globe if someone wants it (Kamchatka too). So I'll do the best to provide the best pay delivery service, I will always keep you update guys! The first problem ever with the fulfillment is the weight, this is why I did't add anything to the game, BUT if we'll be a lot (and I mean A LOT OF VIKINGS) I've already thought a couple of surprise to put in your box.

You will love the game, the fun is guaranteed.

Risks and challenges

Production is very simple because it’s just a card game basically. I want that everyone who has pledged the game to receive it as soon as possible, I don’t want you to wait months or years to play. This is also the reason why there are no gadgets or other stuff, I want an easy distribution process.
I have already spoken with different manufacturing and delivery firms (the best choice at the moment seem the guys of Make Playing Cards), but obviously the final decision will be taken when the campaign is over with the final amount.
I’m keeping it as simple as possible: support my Kickstarter and in return I’ll send you the playable game.
