Blimey! You and your blokes have been banished and stripped of everything but a few shillings and table scraps. Undaunted, you journey to a strange land to reinvent yourself and reclaim your honor. Will you farm the earth, fight as knights or finagle your own feudums?
Feudum (latin for fiefdom) is an economic medieval game of hand and resource management for 2-5 players. With many strategies at their disposal, players optimize four actions per turn in attempt to score the most victory points over five epochs.
Each player controls several medieval characters that roam the countryside tending farms, taxing towns and taking outposts in effort to rise in power.
But that?s only the tip of the behemoth's horn! You will also compete to acquire coveted feudums, which increase your membership status in one of six guilds. But beware! Feudum owners must pay homage to the king through military service or face the charge of disloyalty.
Once a guild member, you will dutifully play your part in a progressive economic cycle, whereby the farmer ships goods to the merchant who equips the alchemist, who invents black powder, which arms the knight, and so on.
If you run your guilds wisely, maintain control of key locations and adapt best to changing events, you will be victorious. Unless, of course, you starve, get sidetracked by sea serpents or develop an unhealthy interest in fermented grapes. Long live the King!
Feudum: Alter Ego is a clever and customizable deck expansion to play Feudum. The game lets you swap up to 6 of the action cards before the game with alternate cards featuring special abilities. The expansion includes:
Keep track of your guild status in every guild with dice representing your player color! 36 total dice, 6 in each of 6 player colors! 2-5 players. Ages 12+. 80-180 minutes.
This stunning neoprene playmat is 20% larger than the normal Feudum board. The playmat features a 6th player wine barrel, another influence marker row in the Knight Guild and enhanced submersible routes for greater visibility! Packaged in sturdy transparent tube.
The Rudders & Ramparts expansion features artisan-edition vessels and castles that may be used purely for decoration?or to play a military variant of the game Feudum!
Upon acquiring a regular vessel or feudum, players may pay an additional shilling to upgrade to a deluxe vessel or castle feudum. Players earn +1 attack for a deluxe vessel and +1 defense for a castle feudum. At the dawn of each epoch, players must pay 1 shilling to maintain each castle or deluxe vessel in their possession?or lose their advantage!
These minor rule additions add a boatload of interesting choices! Players with castles forego the need to reinforce their feudums with subjects because a gold-clad "royal guard" accompanies each castle! Conversely, deluxe vessels make targets of any opponent in a nearby port. But beware! The expensive upkeep may slowly impoverish a player.
Rudders & Ramparts KS Edition includes everything in Rudders & Ramparts and:
Feudum: Seals & Sirens is a surreal seafaring expansion of Feudum. This expansion adds 6 whirlpool discs, 1 royal writs and a wooden siren.
Feudum: Squirrels & Conifers is a "mini-expansion" featuring 50 tasty squirrels and 6 wooden conifer trees that bring the board's topography to life! This expansion replaces the green food cubes with pink ones and creates a multiplying food source on the map. NOTE: The pink cubes are more accessible for color blind players and may also be used apart from the expansion rules.
Bull spit and horse feathers! More strange folk have migrated to your neck of the woods, leaving you with little elbow room. To make matters worse, windmills and catapults are popping up like dandelions. That takes the biscuit! You?re not about to lick someone?s boots without a fight.
Feudum: Windmills & Catapults is a riveting and rambunctious region tile expansion. The game adds new region tiles, royal writs, a wooden windmill, and the ability to play with a 6th, pewter-colored player!
The expansion includes:
