Brian Boru : High King of Ireland, Game Book

Brian Boru : High King of Ireland Game

Illustrated by Deirdre de Barra



Ireland is awash with would-be kings, power-hungry pretenders, and self-professed rulers.

The provinces are in disarray, and the common folk are paying the price.

The land needs a leader. In Brian Boru, players will strive to unite Ireland under their domain, securing control through might, cunning, and matrimony.

Join forces to fend off Viking invaders, build monasteries to extend your influence, and gather support in towns and villages throughout the land.

To become High King of all Ireland, you will need to navigate a web of shifting alliances, outmanoeuvre your enemies, and grab history by the reins. Includes rules in English and German. Number of players: 3-5 Ages: 14+ Play time: 60-90 minutes Components: Board, 46 cards, 139 tokens, 125 wooden discs
