Use your Royal Powers to vanquish opposing troops, imprison and execute rival royalty. Royal Execution® is a suspenseful, family-friendly medieval card game of strategy and intrigue.
WARNING: Treachery and Treason are afoot!
Your subjects may have troops, assassins, and stage peasant revolts ousting you from the Throne. Rival clergy may accuse you of heresy and imprison you - or worse - gather the right support to condemn you to death by execution.
Designed to authentically recreate the power struggles of the Middle Ages where Royal Families, Landed Nobility, and the Church competed for political, military, and religious power. Set up interesting plots and plays that quickly become shamelessly ruthless, viciously vengeful, hilariously melodramatic, and just plain fun!
Extensive play testing suggests ages 8 and up can play this theme-based game.
Players: 2 to 5
Playing Time: 20 Minutes
