Game Arrivals: Oct 18th

Two new games have arrived!

Paladins Of The West Kingdom
Renegade Games

Paladins Of The West Kingdom is the second in the West Kingdom Series by designers Shem Phillips and SJ MacDonald.  These two designers also did the North Sea Saga Series: Raiders Of The North Sea, Explorers Of The North Sea, and Shipwrights Of The North Sea).

Publisher Description
Build fortifications, commission monks and defend the city in this unique worker drafting, action selection game for 1-4 players.
The aim of Paladins of the West Kingdom is to be the player with the most victory points (VP) at game's end. Points are gained by building outposts and fortifications, commissioning monks and confronting outsiders. Each round, players will enlist the help of a specific Paladin and gather workers to carry out tasks. As the game progresses, players will slowly increase their faith, strength and influence. Not only will these affect their final score, but they will also determine the significance of their actions. The game is concluded at the end of the seventh round.

The Heir Of Frankenstein

Do poorly, and you may come to regret not putting forth more effort! Once a player succeeds in bringing their creation to life, or after 12 rounds have elapsed, the game ends and the player with the most victory points fulfills Frankenstein’s dark legacy, for good or ill...
