Viscounts of the West Kingdom has Arrived in Stores

The latest collaboration from Garphill Games and Renegade has arrived

Viscounts of the West Kingdom (Garphill Games/Renegade Game Studios)Viscounts of the West Kingdom has now arrived in stores from Garphill Games and Renegade Game Studios. In the game, designed by Shem Phillips, players travel throughout the realm aiming to gain the most influence over the people and powers that be. Viscounts of the West Kingdom is for one to four players, ages 12+, plays in 60 to 90 minutes, and carries an MSRP of $55.00.

From Renegde:

Viscounts of the West Kingdom is set at a time when the King’s reign began to decline, circa 980 AD. Choosing peace over prosperity, our once strong King began offering our enemies gold and land to lay down their axes. But peace is a tenuous affair. As poverty spread, many people lost faith in his ability to lead and sought independence from the crown. Since finding favour in his courts, our future has also become uncertain. As viscounts, we must be wise and decisive. Loyalty is to be upheld, but gaining favour among the people must be our priority, should there be a sudden shift in power.

The aim of Viscounts of the West Kingdom is to be the player with the most victory points (VP) at game’s end. Points are gained by constructing buildings, writing manuscripts, working in the castle and acquiring deeds for new land. Players begin with a handful of townsfolk, but should quickly seek out more suitable talents to advance their endeavours. Each turn they will be travelling around the kingdom, looking to increase their influence among the various areas of society. The game ends once the Kingdom reaches poverty or prosperity – or potentially both!
