Vladimír Suchy's League of Six was released by Czech Games Edition in 2007. While the game went over very well with some folks, others felt that the game grew monotonous, that nothing developed from one round to the next, leaving you to play six rounds in which the sixth felt almost the same as the first. League of Six: Loyal Retinue, is designed in part to address that concern. "With the expansion, each round you will get one companion for your group who will give you some ability which you will be able to use for the rest of the game," says CGE's Petr Murmak.
These characters are part of a new set of 36 tax tiles that replace those in the base game, and they're marked for use in rounds 1-2, rounds 3-4 and rounds 5-6. Some of the companions are the Tax Collector, who lets you claim items from an extra space in the city; the Abbot, who rewards you for collecting certain tax tiles; the Lieutenant, who lets you trade guards for points at the end of the game, and the Ostler, who gives you half a horse when determining the order of goods storing. That's right – half a horse.
What's more, this expansion includes components for a sixth player, a development that might have seemed obvious given the title. All of the towns are in play with six players, but to keep movement from town to town somewhat difficult, a barrier is established between two towns that requires extra guards to cross.
