Tiny Epic Kingdoms

Civilization en miniature


Tiny Epic Kingdoms is a 4x game – explore, expand, exploit, exterminate – on the topic of conquering empires, albeit on a miniature scale. A tower card and an action card are displayed, each player commands a faction, resources and a randomly assigned territory card. You expand your population, learn magic, build towers and as your neighbors have the same ambitions, fight.

In your turn you implement five steps: 1) Clear action card of shields, if no action is available. 2) Choose action. 3) All players resolve the chosen action or acquire resources; you take the respective resources for each region with your own meeple in it. 4) Check for game end condition – all meeples of a player in play or six tower levels are built or the 5th magic level has been achieved. 5) Hand on active player marker.

Options for actions are: Patrol – move a meeple to an adjacent region; Quest – move a meeple onto another territory card, from border region to border region only. War - if you encounter another faction’s meeple during movement or quest; you set your war die to the value that you want to deploy and pay for it with Mana and Ore; Peace - and Alliance when both choose peace - are possible. Build a tower level; Research to rise magic level; Expand – introduce a new meeple to the game.

At the end of the game you score for meeples in play except in Ruins, capital cities, magic levels and tower, and win with most points.

An attractive quick version light of epic conquest games, offering high replay values, well-made, relaxed and yet full of challenging decisions, with lots of variation due to factions and territories. Highly acclaimed and rightly so!
