Dipping through the interwebs and I notice that Jonathan over at GeekDad has upped some City of Kings piccys from GenCon 2018. Thank you Jonathan!
GenCon, along with Essen in Germany, Airecon in Mother Ireland, and UKGamesExpo in rainy England are the places where designers and creators go to hang out and show off prototypes as much as sell any games.
Crazy things can be spotted, along with the downright eeeevil:
The City of Kings, an [EPIC!!] fantasy cooperative boardgame has started its shipping, and is right now arriving on living room floors and kitchen tables as we speak! Sacred Crom, but that feels good to say.
It’s a brand spanking new fantasy world, brought to life by the unique art by Miguel Da Silva, where your choice of heroes go on quests (called Scenarios) before all hope runs out on the last city standing. Each scenario builds in complexity and threat as the game progresses, meaning that you can play one or two “easy” scenarios for a short session, or the more advanced scenarios for longer. Your heroes can be faced with a tide of monstrous creatures and armies from Lord Vesh the Darkhand, as well as finding unique setting-based magical items, or gathering resources for the poorly-stocked City of Kings.

Here is a promo of the various characters of the game – can you guess which one is my favorite?
