Kickstarter Link – Give It to the King!
Give It to the King! is a game for 2-4 players where you will become a Royal Messenger racing against the other players, as you try to be the first to deliver messages to the King at the end of a long hallway. When it’s your turn, you can move any player’s messenger. So long as you do not move yourself, you can maintain control of the die and the board. But as you press on, chances are you will run into trouble and have to pass the die. Will you use the power of the message you carry to keep going, or should you use it to stop someone else from reaching the King before you? Delivering messages unused pays you the most gold, so it will always be a tough decision either way. If you are ready to become the Captain of the Messengers and win the most gold, then grab a scroll and get going!
This looks like fun.
It seems quite tactical with difficult decisions to be made.
Do you play your cards to get their benefits but lose them as a reward should you get to the King first?
Do you put yourself in the lead or keep yourself at the back and hope someone rolls a 1?
Do you play the card you want to play and hope no one else plays one at the same time cause the guy who is currently the Captain is the guy you screwed over last turn?
Lots of decisions and a short nice looking fun game.
Did I pledge?
Although $45 is much better value than the previous $61, I will wait and but I will probably pick this up if it when/if it goes retail.
If you don’t mind paying the cost and/or you’re lucky enough to live in an area where you don’t have to pay it at all then please pick up this game.
