Who Wears the Crown?
(formerly Eminence Grise)
Players: 4-8, Time: 30-45min, Ages: 13+
The Primarch is dead, the people are without a ruler, and now the nobles of court must decide the next Primarch. Being upstanding nobles however we must only help provide claims for their fellows instead of themselves but this does not mean that bribery is out of the question. Support, Betray, and negotiate your way to victory!
Who Wears the Crown is a social-collusion, partial information, negotiation game of court politics and shifting alliances. In Who Wears the Crown there are two winners the Primarch who has the most Crown points and the Chancellor who has the most of the Primarch's influence. Players play Crown cards to either support or betray their rivals and players negotiate with their influence to score Crown points. Players can also spend rivals' favor to use devious Intrigue actions!
