Disaster has come to the land as the king’s reign comes to its end. The kingdom has fallen into a state of disrepair. To ensure continued peace, the king must pick a successor among his sons. With a single hopeful declaration, the king announces that his sons have 3 years to rebuild the once majestic kingdom. The prince who builds the most impressive castle may have a chance to repair the prestige of the shattered kingdom.
Using limited Action Point resources, strategically move your loyal Knights to stand atop the tallest tower. Not only do you need to build as high to the sky as you can, but you must also build across as much broken ground as possible to maximize the glory of your castle. As your towers rise, so too will the peoples’ hope in a new age of prosperity. May you be selected as the prince to become king.
