King’s Champion is a thrilling game of medieval jousting, where players control three brave knights seeking honor for their household by claiming victory in the Kingswood Tournament of Champions.

Using a blend of euro mechanics with ameritrash action, King’s Champion marries the two styles in an innovative way, building a unique and engaging game experience.

The game board is made up of 5 Building Cards for worker placement, 5 Political Track Cards for Household advancement and Expansion, 1 Jousting List Card to choose the order of the Joust each round, 1 Round of Play Card to keep track of player initiative and number of rounds and 1 Phases of Play Card to track the phases of the game.

The game is played over a series of rounds. During the rounds players draw cards and place workers to enhance their knights, then outfit and equip them for the joust before setting their order of battle secretly. Once revealed, jousts are handled with a simple to follow and inventive dice combat system where no dice roll is ever wasted. During the cleanup phase, earned reputation is spent, political influence increased, and eligible knights promoted. Once one player’s morale is diminished to zero, they are eliminated and the King’s Champion is crowned!
