Of Power & Glory

In the end, we'll see where the true glory lies
Note: Of Power & Glory is currently being redesigned. It will be re-published bigger and better than before!

Across this land, the people of the world bow before their kings in the name of power and glory. What they do not understand is that power and glory need not rest in the same hands!

Let the kings have their glory, if that's what they call it. Let their names be written down and passed from father to son for years to come. We care not for what passes for glory in their eyes.

We are happy to stand above the stage in quiet darkness, pulling the strings and shaping the world as we see fit. We are the rulers of kings, and this is our land and in the end, we'll see where the true glory lies.

In Of Power & Glory, each player represents a Noble family in a land consumed by war. The war is being fought among eight kings in the realm. Players will need to aid the kings in order to gain power and then use this power to help themselves… perhaps at the cost of the very kings that gave them power in the first place.

Of Power & Glory is a Machiavellian strategy game that rewards foresight, deceptive sleight of hand, and investing your influence strategically to better your position among the other noble families.

At it’s heart, Of Power & Glory is a worker placement game, but the real innovation is found in the simple, but powerful artificial intelligence that drives the game. In the game. eight Kings will expand their territory, fight among themselves and even destroy their foes, all without the need for player input.

To be clear, players can and will influence the war, but they are not motivated by the outcome of the war as much as how they can use the circumstances of the war to their advantage. The AI simulates a war to serve as a dynamic backdrop for the real game... A game of political maneuvering, strategic thinking and tactics.
