Taifa: Intrigue and War in Medieval Spain

(English version)

Immerse yourself in the medieval Spain of the 11th century. The Caliphate of Cordoba, in the south of the Iberian Peninsula, has fallen and its place is occupied by a multitude of small Muslim "Taifa" kingdoms trying to survive the attacks of the larger and more powerful Christian kingdoms in the north.

We are in the era of the Reconquest and of mythical characters such as "El Cid", adventurers who, with their "mesnada" (band of warriors), fought alongside Christian kingdoms, Muslim kingdoms or on their own; as well as the fierce and fanatical North African Almoravids, who were invited by the muslims to invade the peninsula after the fall of the Taifa of Toledo in 1081 A.D.

Take control of one of the major kingdoms of the time and fight to expand it through intrigue, diplomacy and war, in Taifa... a hand management and area control game with all the historical flavour of the era.
