Kingdom 18 is a one on one competition for land that provides a deck building feel in only 18 cards.
Each player starts the game with the same hand of 4 cards, using these to effectively blind bid for kingdom cards. After resolving the bids, players add any won kingdoms to their pool of cards, shuffle and draw 4 new cards. As the game goes on each player's 'deck' changes with the lands they have won and new starting hand combinations change they way they have to bid.
Cards can have values in war or politics used to acquire the lands or shields and assassins that can steal war or politics totals from the other player when played correctly. Once all the cards have been won, the player with the strongest kingdom is the victor!

"[Kingdom 18] is inviting to new players, yet provides enough of the bluffing (if you wish) and deduction components to attract players that prefer a more strategic game."
