Arcane Wonders and the Dice Tower are pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement with world famous designer Peter Hawes (Francis Drake and Triassic Terror) to publish his new game, Royals, as part of the Dice Tower Essentials line of games!
In Royals, players take on the roles of great noble houses of the 17th century, fighting for supremacy in Europe. By collecting country cards, players will influence Royal members across the Spanish, English, German and French countrysides. Influence can be contested though with the right intrigue cards and players will be in constant contest to maintain their influence in each region. The game takes place over three periods with scoring in between rounds and a final scoring period at the end, determined by who held the most influence with each Royal member.
Royals utilizes set collection, territory control, and influence mechanics to provide a colorful, engaging, and exciting game! We are very excited to be working with another great designer in Peter, and we hope you join us in welcoming this exciting and fun new title to the growing line of Games that Tom Vasel loves. With artwork from Michael Menzel and the design of Peter Hawes, Royals truly is an essential game to own! Be on the lookout for more information about Royals as Arcane Wonders develops it for release soon.
