Product Description

The High Kings of Tara is a game for 2 or 4 players. Players vie to gain control of the ancient lands of Ireland, using Celtic knotwork to secure their kingdoms, in a marvelously inventive game of feudal strategy and defense.

The game consists of three parts, the Opening, the Middlegame, and the Endgame. The board is covered with stylized hills and valleys, divided up into different territories, each marked with its own symbol.

The main object is to be the player with the most unified kingdom when the board is completed. Each player begins by creating a number of ring-forts. Once these key strongholds have been established, opponents try to form the most unified kingdom, linking and defending their ring-forts in the creation of a series of unique and beautiful knots.
