I’m excited to take part in the latest round of play testing for Kingdom, the new game from Ben Robbins, creator of Microscope and the famed West Marches campaign. The eponymous kingdom can actually be any sort of institution to which the player characters are intertwined with, be it a frontier town, a modern hospital, or an interstellar empire. Gameplay determines the fate of the kingdom as influenced by the PCs.
During my initial read through of the rules, I kept thinking that a game of Kingdom set around a traditional western fantasy nation would capture the feeling of Game of Thrones better than any other game I’ve ever come across. I’m really looking forward to giving it a spin as soon as possible.
