The City of Kings can be played in 2 ways, by choosing either a story or a scenario.

Stories

There are 7 stories to play, each story has its own objectives and continues a narrative introducing you to the world and characters. Stories are the heart of The City of Kings and will provide you with a challenging, immersive experience.

Scenarios

Scenarios are quick ways to play the game offering smaller challenges of varying difficulty. They focus on different aspects such as combat or worker management and provide endless ways to play, and you can even create your own!

Let’s go

Once you have chosen a story or scenario, each player will need to choose a hero to play. Each hero can be customised by levelling up, allowing you to create your own role.

Perhaps you want to be a long-range attacker or a fast moving, short range healer. If you’d prefer to focus on absorbing damage (tanking) or managing workers, then you can do that too! There are 90 customisable stat points and 12 skills per hero, so you never have to play the same way twice.

The City of Kings is played in rounds, during each round you will check if you have completed your objective, update the time tracker and then each player will perform their turn.

Players will move across the board turning over tiles, discovering resources, side quests, hazards, building sites, traders, creatures and more.

Each player will control multiple characters, their hero and their own workers, who can be used to gather resources, build structures, explore and place traps.

When you encounter creatures they will be generated from a simple set of rules creating a challenging creature for you to defeat. There are over 10,000,000 possible creatures to fight and each will require you to come up with a strategy to defeat it.

Creatures are persistent, staying on the board until they are defeated. There are no dice*, if your attack stat is 5, you will do 5 damage. You will need to work together, using your environment to absorb the creatures attacks, keep each other alive and to find a way to overcome the creatures' powerful abilities.

* For players who like to roll dice, there is an optional character stat which you can level up, allowing you to roll dice to modify your attack and heal actions.

The Blood-Letter's chase Vyliria and Earthshaker around the board setting fire to the environment.  Our heroes try to survive whilst their workers build up the Shrine, giving them the additional strength they need to defeat the creature.

The City of Kings offers endless puzzles requiring true cooperation, full character customisation, roleplaying quests, resource management and an immersive experience that we hope you will love.

You can download the rulebook here and the quick reference booklet here.

The City of Kings is a fully cooperative game with no hidden information and supports solo play through a single player controlling 2 heroes. As such, the game plays the same as it would for 2, 3 and 4 players and you will get the full experience.

City of Games has spent the last 2 years building a world for The City of Kings, designing characters, writing stories and detailing events spanning 13,755 years. City of Games wanted to go further than a theme and design a world which you can immerse yourself in for years to come.

As you play through the game you will experience the Cloud Keep War and learn about the key characters who came together for one last fight, as they tried to stop Vesh from claiming the entire world.

You will encounter survivors in need of assistance and they will offer you side quests further describing the world you are in.  

Thanks to unlocked stretch goals City of Games added even more lore to the game by including back stories for each of the characters and all of the enemy factions.

Overview from Frank West:
The City of Kings is a fully cooperative fantasy adventure board game. You and up to 3 friends play the roles of the surviving leaders and must defeat the armies of Vesh over a series of 7 stories. Each story offers a unique challenge and has optional objectives depending on how long you want to play.

The game features full character customisation, worker management, board exploration, roleplaying style quests and strategic combat designed for replayability. Experience dice free combat and battle against more than 10,000,000 uniquely generated creatures on a map that has 1,000’s of possible layouts, using characters you create by choosing from over 100 different options.

There are 6 heroes to choose from, each featuring 12 unique skills and 90 customisable stat points allowing you to specialise in attacking, healing, tanking, area control and worker management.

This world used to be a garden full of life; from the flying Vadora to the deep-dwelling Dwarves – but that was before Vesh came. The world has been lost and only one city remains; the oldest city in the world – and the last refuge for all of us. Now... we fight back.

The City of Kings is a cooperative tactical roleplaying board game for 1 - 4 players in which your character is tasked with exploring the hazardous world, trading for vital resources, and battling your enemies whilst uncovering a story of a world imperiled.

You start by choosing one of seven stories, then select your hero, with each of the six heroes featuring twelve unique skills and nine customizable stats that allow you to specialize in attacking, healing, tanking, worker management, or whatever you desire. Aside from your hero, you need to manage your workers, who must gather resources in order to trade for new items and build structures to gain powerful bonuses.

You explore across the Ageless Realms by turning over tiles, discovering resources, side quests, hazards, building sites, traders and creatures as you continue to power up whilst preparing to enter Azure Rise.

At its heart, The City of Kings is a complex puzzle featuring endless strategic battles. Each creature is generated from a pool of spells, characteristics and stats offering over 10,000,000 unique battle situations. There are no dice, damage is persistent, it’s up to you to customize your characters and work together to come up with a strategy to defeat whoever stands in your way.
