About the game


Kinghill is a worker-placement game at heart, with a focus on gaining dominance on the board using units and spells.

In this game you take the role of a general leading a great kingdom into deadly battle to siege the enemy castle and claim a powerful artifact.

Inspiration comes from games like Lords of the Waterdeep, The Manhattan Project, Caverna or card games like Hearthstone or Magic: The Gathering.

Mixing together these two genres creates the opportunity for unique gameplay and an awesome experience for both euro and card-game players.

If you already have enough of building farms and feeding workers, focus rather on gathering your army, developing the Castle and studying powerful spells.

Siege the enemy Castle and win the game !

Finaly, you have arrived !

A smokescreen covered your continuous blinks towards the outskirts of the great kingdom, until the purple glow of Hope is the only thing clearly visible.

Along the way, you could sense the great shadow of a Dragon, watching your every step. Then, the distant voices of survivors seeking revenge towards the witch echoed through the destroyed cathedral halls.

Others are tending to their wounded, others were trying to collect dead bodies scattered around. You can hear burning husk from the great funeral pyre, whilst the High priest is chanting blessings.

Then in a gust of wind you can almost feel vibrant and pulsating power of nearby Moonstone, installed on the top of the Mage tower.

Are you ready ?
