Description

In Barony, players are ambitious barons trying to extend their dominion over the land! Who will succeed and become the new king?

At the beginning of the game, players create the board at random with nine tiles per player; each tile is comprised of three hexagons, with each hexagon being one of five landscape types: forest, plains, field, mountain, lake. Players then each place three cities on the game board, with a knight in each city. They then take turns in clockwise order, with each player taking exactly one action from the six possible actions:

  • Recruitment: Add two knights to a city, or three knights if the city is adjacent to a lake.
  • Movement: Move one or two of your knights one space each. A knight can't enter a lake (blub), a mountain with an opposing pawn, or any space with an opponent's city or stronghold or two knights of the same opposing color. If you move a second knight into a space with an opposing pawn or village, remove those tokens and take one resource from the village owner.
  • Construction: Remove one or more of your knights from the game board and replace each with a village or stronghold, gaining one resource token matching the landscape under the structure.
  • New City: Replace one of your villages with a city and earn 10 victory points (VPs).
  • Expedition: Remove two knights from your reserve, placing one back in the box out of play and the other on any empty space on the edge of the game board.
  • Noble Title: Discard at least 15 resource points, then upgrade your title: baron to viscount, then count, marquis and finally duke.

Once any player has gained the title of duke, finish the round, then tally the VPs, with players scoring for resources still in their possession, their rank in the game, and the number of cities they built. Whoever has the most VPs wins.

a bit finnicky but they look great on the base

You have to be gentle with them, the "flower" parts tend to clump together when removing from the paper but if you mix them in with other tufts from this range they look superb

Digibrilliant!

This game is different enough from the big three card games (Magic, Pokemon & Yu-Gi-Oh!) to be exciting to play even for a jaded old man like me. The art and lore are a wonderful nostalgia hit for those of is that grew up with the Saturday morning cartoon too. Great game, would highly recommend giving it a go :)

This your dice? Preetty dice!

Bought for 10 yr old daughter as she gets into D&D, my opinions are obviously irrelevant. She ADORES them. Rolls a lot of 20s. Major Dad win.
Thanks Athena for your patience and enthusiasm as both my children ummed and ahhed over their choices, really lovely supportive experience for them. My son later said 'Why can't all shops be like that?' And there you have it.
