While the King is away, the Prince will play.
The Crusades have summoned Richard the Lionheart to the Middle East. Back home in England, John Lackland is trying to consolidate his power, recruiting the Sheriff of Nottingham to his side. Opposing them is Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men. What will be left of Richard’s Kingdom when the Crusades are over?
In Richard the Lionheart, players ally themselves either with Robin Hood or John Lackland. They travel across England, trying to earn Prestige points and influence the Crusades from afar. At the end of the game, Richard will return to what’s left of his Kingdom… if he returns at all. The player who has earned the most Prestige is declared the winner.
• Two Game Boards – Players travel throughout Britain on one board, gaining Prestige for the deeds they do. They also track the progress of the Crusades on a second board, determining the outcome of Richard’s actions in the Middle East
• Detailed Figures – Ten detailed miniature figures represent the characters supporting each side of the conflict.
• Influence the Crusades – Players’ actions don’t just affect them in Britain, but they will influence what happens in the Middle East. Richard could return in triumph, or not at all.
