Architects of the West Kingdom is set at the end of the Carolingian Empire, circa 850 AD.

As royal architects, players compete to impress their King and maintain their noble status by constructing various landmarks throughout his newly appointed domain.

Players need to collect raw materials, hire apprentices, and keep a watchful eye on their workforce.

These are treacherous times, and rival architects will stop at nothing to slow your progress. Will you remain virtuous, or be found in the company of thieves and black marketeers?

Object of the Game

The aim of Architects of the West Kingdom is to be the player with the most Victory Points (VP) at the game's end. Points are gained by constructing various Buildings and advancing work on the Cathedral.

Throughout the game, players will need to make a lot of moral decisions. However, only at the game's end will their Virtue be judged. A few underhanded deals here and there might not seem like much, but fall too far and you will be punished. The game ends once a set number of constructions have been completed. …

In Architects of the West Kingdom: Age of Artisans, journeymen have returned to the city as master craftsmen, equipped with knowledge of new crafts and tools.

The guildhall has never been so busy! While some apprentices spend time learning new skills, others adorn the city's buildings with everything from golden tapestries, to stained glass windows.

But don't let the shimmer of lights and fancy wares deceive you. For not all that glitters is gold.
