Designed by Evan Halbert and Ryan Mauk from Portland Gamecraft, After the Empire is a 2-4 player game that plays in about 90 minutes. In After the Empire, you’ll be recruiting refugees, gathering resources and fortifying your defenses in order to prepare for assault after assault of invaders seeking to sack your castle and take its riches. During each season’s combat a minimum of three invader cards are revealed, with a randomized number of troops and compass direction of attack. Only the wealthiest of castles will draw the attention of larger forces and their siege weapons. You must repair your city and recruit and arm your troops quickly to stand any chance. The game includes plastic castle pieces in both “wood” and “stone” varieties that players will assemble on their boards in front of them.
