Throne of the World is a simple card game by the designer of Attack on Monster. Each turn you have a few options between h0w many cards you draw and how many you play; for example, you can draw 2 cards and play 3 cards, or just play 5 cards, etc.
Each card is either one of the 7 professions or an action card. When you play profession cards, you place them in front of you and the more you have of a type, the more powerful they are when activated.
When you play action cards, you choose a profession to activate (although some action cards can not activate specific professions). When activated, some professions earn cash, some attack other players (which remove cards/coins), and some steal cards from other players. There are also some special skill cards which give powerful one-off effects.
After your turn, you must pay 1 coin for each profession card you have in front of you. Also, each player has a specific race card which gives them a special ability too.
There are several victory conditions such as having 45 coins, having 15 coins and at least 1 card of each of the 7 professions. However, you are automatically out of the game if you ever run out of coins. Read the rest of this entry »
