The old king is dying and the princes are all vying to succeed him. The players are the princes and each begins with three castles and three knights. Using limited resources, each tries to build stable regions and then expand them. When a prince expands into a brother's region, he gains points and his brother loses points. The more territory a prince can claim, the more points he earns. When the king dies, the prince who has gained the most power points, becomes the new king and the winner of the game!
