Description Edit | History

The Elven king is dead, and players are competing to become the next king. This game is similar in nature to Elfenroads/Elfenland in that players try to visit as many cities as possible using optimal transportation cards; what's different is that the lay of the land is also dictated by card play. Other players may interfere with your journey through the use of thieves, obstacles, and sea serpents.

6 King of the Elves - Player mat
Player place mats for King of the Elves. These mats have a separate mat for each or the colors, a place holder for the journey cards, envoy card, gold, and player tokens. Each of the village card spots also has a reminder for the cards that can be played on it. There is also a play phase walk through with the cost associated with the actions.

9 NPC village variant for two-player game, v1.0
this variant adds a couple extra “non-player” villages to the playing field, making it bit more of a challenge to visit all the villages and collect the 10-gold bonus

6 Rules Quicky, v1.1 / Card Manifest, v1.1
A handy little reference sheet: rules synopsis on one side, card list on the other. Print this out on a blank page, flip the page end-for-end and print again. Then cut on the solid red lines, fold over on the dotted red line, and you've two double-sided reference sheets!
