Thousands of years ago, in a time shrouded by the mists of history, the Elder Kings came to the continent of Terrinoth. They conquered the land and established a line of kings that ruled the entire continent. In time, these kings became lazy, decadent... and cruel. Eventually, the Elder Kings were overthrown, the cities became free, and then came the Dragon War and the Elder Kings were lost to the mists of history. Until now.
Crown of the Elder Kings is an expansion pack for Runebound. It replaces elements of the adventure deck and creates a completely new story with new challenges, new events, new rules, and new victory conditions.
Despite flashy games which cause a stir at Essen or get picked by Games Magazine as tops in one of their many catagories, there are games which we go back to time and again and the companies which make them support them with excellent expansions. These games often have a loyal following, but get little fanfare.
Runebound is a great game for two or three players (More can play, but the time spent waiting for your turn can be a bit of a drag.) It's a light roleplaying boardgame.
Crown of the Elder Kings provides all that is needed to play a different adventure using the Runebound system. There are many expansions produced for this game. I found this one enjoyable, well produced and very inexpensive.
