A card game of courtly intrigue for 3-5 players
His Royal Majesty is dying. Stricken with sudden illness our king failed to anoint his successor. Now a ruthless game begins between his sons, daughters and bastards.
Outmaneuver your rivals.
Gain support of key figures at the court.
Become the next king.
In Interregnum 3-5 players strive to build a coterie of influential nobles, courtiers and soldiers who will support their claim to the throne. Important members of the court can help persuade others to join your cause, but even lowly servants often hear rumors that you may use as leverage.
During each round players take turns trying to recruit character cards from their hands. Supporters recruited this way provide players with power (victory points) as well as influence and skills.
Other contenders use whatever influence they have to block your recruitment attempts, so rotten compromises and short-term alliances will be necessary along the way.
If you play your cards right and outsmart the competition, the crown will be yours.
