Heirs to the Throne
Fantasy-themed strategic/managerial wargame. The premise is that in a vast
continent made up of warring fiefdoms a king arose and unified the whole land.
Eventually the once warring barons agreed that they couldn’t live peacefully
with each other and the king was assassinated while the sole heir was
conveniently out fighting in the Crusades. You play one of this barons who
must expand his starting territory and conquer the entire kingdom. Gameplay is
phase-based and you have to do all sort of things from commanding armies and
devicing combat strategies to managing your budding villages and fiefdoms by
collecting taxes, recruiting, and balancing your checkbook.
The game includes a series of gameplay options to modify and create your own
game modes. You can select the size of the kingdom, the amount of territory to
be explored, the chances of random events, and there’s even an option that
makes the game a race against the clock as you try to get the kingdom before
the rightful heir returns. Includes hot-seat multiplayer support for up to 4
