So sorry... this game is SOLD OUT 😢

The latest release from Shem Phillips and Sam Macdonald over at Garphill games!

No introduction needed…

Paladins of the West Kingdom is another SOLID worker-placement game in the West Kingdom realm!!  Brought to us by the creative (and wickedly cool) team at Garphill games; Shem Phillips and Sam Macdonald!!! Well done, gents!

And of course, the artwork by The Mico never disappoints…. I am a HUGE fan!

This package includes all of the Kickstarter goodies (included in the main box – not as a separate pack of goodies like Architects) AND the metal coins! When you’re shopping around… please factor in the coins in the overall cost ??

Enlist the help of your paladin… gather workers… carry out tasks! Go!

Solid worker placement with a moderate amount of indirect player interaction (you took my spot!)… but no take-that mechanic; which I personally prefer.

Basic gameplay is easy to understand and learn… but choosing the correct strategy to achieve victory?  Well, that’s another story! Pick a path to victory and STAY on it! Bounce around the board doing a little of everything… and like me, you may not do so well. ?

Busy busy busy!

Once again I am writing a VERY abridged description in an effort to get as many new games as I can onto the site on this cold, windy, November day.

Did anyone else just hear “November Rain” by Guns n’ Roses on their head as they read that sentence? Hahaha.


Beautiful artwork! Solid mechanics! Wooden bits a plenty! Metal coins! Uh… hello? This one is going in the library!! ???

Paladins of the West KingdomKickstarter Edition of Paladins of the West Kingdom with promos and metal coins included!!!

Paladins of the West Kingdom is set at a turbulent time of West Francia’s story, circa 900 AD. Despite recent efforts to develop the city, outlying townships are still under threat from outsiders. Saracens scout the borders, while Vikings plunder wealth and livestock. Even the Byzantines from the east have shown their darker side. As noble men and women, players must gather workers from the city to defend against enemies, build fortifications and spread faith throughout the land. Fortunately you are not alone. In his great wisdom, the King has sent his finest knights to help aid in our efforts. So ready the horses and sharpen the swords. The Paladins are approaching.

The aim of Paladins of the West Kingdom is to be the player with the most victory points (VP) at game’s end. Points are gained by building outposts and fortifications, commissioning monks and confronting outsiders. Each round, players will enlist the help of a specific Paladin and gather workers to carry out tasks. As the game progresses, players will slowly increase their faith, strength and influence. Not only will these affect their final score, but they will also determine the significance of their actions. The game is concluded at the end of the seventh round.
