Kingmaker (Video Review)

12 November 2012 2 Comments

 Kingmaker is based on the War of the Roses in English history, a time of civil war when two royal houses competed for the rightful throne. Players control factions using their military and political power to control and influence the royal heirs, supporting the heir in their control as king while trying to take down all of the other heirs.

~ Avalon Hill

Recovering hobo, one-time actor and street corner philosopher, now trying to enjoy the less fine things in life (like everyone else does). One thing has been nearly constant in my life - gaming. Even before discovering wargames (at the tender age of 10 or so - purely fortuitous), I would play out family games (including the 3M series) solitaire. But, life situations interfered not too long ago, and I was largely without board gaming for the better part of a decade. The last couple of years have seen me devoting myself to the hobby again - and learning a lot of the newer designs - so, I'm looking from the eyes of an old grognard (ah, how I fought against THAT term when first used on me) but an open mind and willingness to see if newer games appeal.

    Enrioco I used to play a War of the Roses game a long time ago when I was in my teens. It looks a lot like this one but I am not sure. The Shields look exactly like the game I used to play. I remember being great fun.

    I wouldn’t mind finding a old copy of that game.

    This is the only game I’m aware of that matches the subject.

    It can be found fairly cheaply.
