Bank of the Realms

An abstract where you try to form hidden patterns

Premise

Each world has their classic game. In Elegantem it’s Bank of the Realms. And it’s played by old, young, and everyone in between.

Each player takes the roll of one of the races in Elegantem:

  • Moon Elves
  • Iron Born Dwarves
  • Constructs
  • Kitsune
  • and the Black Tortoises

Goal

Each player attempts to add, upgrade, and manipulate pieces on the board to achieve their objectives.

Each player tries to arrange the pieces in the board (yours and your opponents) in just the right way you can score your objective cards and prevent your opponent from scoring their own.

Each card is worth 1-5 victory points ⭐️. The first player to 8 victory points ⭐️ wins.

Setup

Place the board between all players. Each player places one of their bronze coins in their starting position.

Place the 5 action cards besides the board in reach of all players.

Each player draws 2 objective cards (with 1 victory point ⭐️ on the back). Keep them secret until scored.

The player who most recently made a cash transaction is the first player.

How to Play

On your turn you may take 1 free action and you must take 1 primary action.

There are 5 action cards which are in one of two states:

  • Ready - if cards are horizontal they’re ready to be used. You may use the cards primary action.
  • Exhausted - if cards are vertical you may use the cards free action.

  • This game contains a premium upgrade where the printed components will be embossed with a linen texture.
