A second edition of The King is Dead, a 2-4 player game of loyalty and politics in Medieval Britain.
Peer Sylvester started his career in boardgaming quite early, because his dad needed an opponent in chess. In third grade he wanted to become a professional chess player. Instead he turned out to become a teacher for math and chemistry. An award-winning board-game designer, including titles such as The King is Dead and The Lost Expedition, he has written a number of books on the subject.
