From the Publisher...
The game is a redesign of Costikyan's classic Ares Magazine game "Barbarian Kings." but whereas that game was created to fit in a magazine, the JRG version will come in a box with expanded forces available for players, new rules, and two different worlds to conquer rather than just the original one.
BK is a game of economic management and army conquest as kings, wizards, and heroes battle across the land. BK uses simultaneous movement and has races ranging from elves to barbarians to flying men-each with their own powers. As regions are conquered, they can be used to hire troops of the various races, all called to your banner by thoughts of conquest and glory. In its magazine format, Barbarian Kings was acclaimed as one of the classic fantasy wargames of all time. With its re-release, a timeless classic becomes even better!
