    Yeah, I must have played this once a year for about 20 years – Superb Fun – it’s our club’s default ‘not got a game – let’s play Kingmaker’

    I swore I would back the Kickstarter and didnt….. silly me.

    I mostly remember it as a “not so fun” game. We tried several times to play it, but never finished a game. Perhaps it just didn’t “click” with my gaming group.

    Still got the Gibson Games copy. Haven’t played it in years though.

    Obvious contrarian and passive aggressive old prat, who is taken far too seriously by some and not seriously enough by others.

    …my favourite game.

    My second favourite – after Pass the Pigs.

    If I am honest it would be spoof as my favourite game using the pigs from “pass the pigs,” always after a few drinks  🍷

    The original game by Philmar was great, but it did basically go on forever, with everyone holed up in their stronghold with a royal heir. The Avalon Hill version helped with that a bit, but I understand the new version does actually have variants which make the game terminate

    I remember the advantages of controlling the motorway network, forces could zip around England and sneak up behind you 🙂

    Mine arrived today, excellent production quality.
    Very impressed with the game and it allows you to play the classic version.
    Worth £48 including postage.

    Excellent and a good price, I saw it in a shop at £70 something. I seem to remember the back of the box said it had a solo variant, it might interest me as a campaign generator for my Wars of Roses figures.

    Yes Norm it has a solo version, a Kingmaker II version, a Kingmaker classic version and a Kingmaker classic extended version.

    Looking forward to getting my copy; always thought KINGMAKER was overhyped.

    Thanks, I’ll share the info of this new edition.

    I played this game a few times, very long ago, the gaming club in Rennes (Brittany) had one. I liked the unexpected system, that the players were not represented by the pretenders themselves (York or Lancaster) but by factions of nobility, it was a new approach of a dynastic conflict game.
