Crusader Kings Boardgame Brings Medieval Power and Intrigue to the Tabletop!

Crusader Kings boardgame brings medieval power and intrigue to the tabletop!

Modiphius are pleased to announce the release of Crusader Kings, a brand new boardgame based on the hit computer game from the makers of Tales from the Loop and Bloodlines 2, plus its first expansion, Counsellors and Inventions.

Both The Crusader Kings Board Game and its expansion Counsellors and Inventions are available now as part of Modiphius’ board game collection.

My King, the time has come. Your day is now. Are you ready to make your mark on History?

Free League Publishing and Paradox Interactive are proud to present Crusader Kings – The Board Game, based on the acclaimed grand strategy computer game. In this game, 3–5 players lead the historical dynasties of medieval Europe to triumph – or downfall.

You are a Crusader King, striving for wealth and power across the continent. Across generations. Reshape the history of medieval Europe in your own image – if only that dimwitted son of yours set to inherit the throne doesn’t spoil your grand plans…

Crusader Kings – The Board Game captures the essence of the Crusader Kings experience, in a physical tabletop format. This is a strategy game at heart, but with a special focus on characters, intrigue, and juicy medieval drama. It’s a big, beautiful game centered on a map of medieval Europe, using hundreds of cards for actions, characters and events and 70 plastic miniatures to represent knights, armies, castles, and more.

To win, you will need to groom your family, build mighty castles, develop your dominion, be shrewd in the realm of diplomacy and intrigue, and use your vassals wisely to grow your wealth and military power. You must survive invasions, plots, plagues, crusades to the Holy Land – and marriage! Or at least have children or siblings standing by to take over the throne if your regent dies. Failure to raise a suitable heir can mean the end of your dynasty.

Crusader Kings – The Board Game boils down the unique strategy/RPG combination of Crusader Kings to an intense tabletop experience of 2-3 hours. The game rests on four core pillars:

  • Character Focus. The game brings characters and dynasties to the forefront, using traits and events to develop the characters and the story.
  • Grand Strategy. Crusader Kings is a grand strategy game at heart, and so is the board game. To win, you will need to plan decades ahead and outwit your opponents.
  • Emergent Storytelling. Like the computer game, the board game has an events system (using cards) that interacts with the game mechanics to create unexpected and memorable story twists.
  • Steeped in History. The board game is based on historical characters and events of the Middle Ages, letting you relive – and change – the course of actual history.

Crusader Kings The Board Game – Councilors & Inventions

A set of 24 additional beautifully crafted plastic miniatures for Crusader Kings – The Board Game. These come in 12 unique designs that represent councilors and inventions in the game rules. The set also includes bonus rules that let allow players to send their councilors on missions in medieval Europe, rather than just staying home at the royal court! All miniatures are sculpted by Anton Angheluta.

We hope you enjoy this brand new board game and look out for more new boardgames, books, accessories and dice coming soon!

Best wishes,

Modiphius Entertainment
