The hated monarch has returned surrounded by his brutal yet faithful guards. As the voices of protest rise around the city, and people in dark alleys whisper of overthrowing the king, he ignores his advisors' pleas and recklessly decides to walk through the main square heedless of his subjects' moods.
Yet, there are people willing to raise their hands against him. As the angry mob is gathering on every corner, assassins in disguise start prowling the streets waiting for an opportunity to end the monarch's reign once and for all. Will it happen today?
Kings & Assassins is an asymmetrical game of strategy and deception set in a Medieval city. Become the vile king and order your knights to clear the way to the castle or side with the assassins hidden among the citizens infuriated by the king's insolence.
Use unique tools at your disposal - push aside and chain unruly burghers with your knights or cunningly place disguised assassins to strike at the most opportune moment. Plan and plot when spending your available Action Points in order to crush your opponent.
