In AD 962 Otto the Great becomes Holy Roman Emperor. In this age of the itinerant kingship he doesn’t rule from a capitaly but travels from palace to palace.
In “The King’s Will” the players assume the role of the dukes whose palaces the King is visiting. They try to find out what the King’s current will is and climb in his favor while they steadily enlarge tehir duchies.
After four rounds, the player who proves himself to be the best in meeting the wishes of the King will win the game.
