Viceroy is a game of bidding and resource management set in the fantasy universe of the famous Russian CCG Berserk. As the players fight for control over the world of Laar, they recruit a variety of allies and enact various laws. These cards allow players to develop their state's military and magical might, increase their authority, and obtain precious gems they need to continue expanding their nation.
As play progresses, each player builds his own power pyramid using character and law cards. Each card has its own effect that is dependent on the level of the pyramid where the card is played. These effects may yield more resources, more cards, or victory points. The player with the most power points at the end of the game becomes the ruler of entire Laar and the winner!
