Summary
The gang and I really enjoyed our time with The King is Dead. While this is a light strategy game there's actually a bit more brainpower required to play well than you might initially think. You'll need to balance using your actions when you can get the most bang for the buck while also making sure you don't run out of actions too quickly. The component quality is nicely done, although I think the box is far larger than it needed to be, thus making it less portable than it could have been.
