King of the City

Print-and-Play PDF

You are the grey eminence spreading rumors.
You are the spider pulling the strings.
You are the monarch ordering and governing.
The hero swooning public opinion.
The criminal marking territory.
The police patrolling the streets.

You are a very influential person, a power player, and your target is the final control over the only kingdom that actually matters... the City.

But you are not the only one.

This GM-Less game uses real chess boards and pieces to help you and your friends recreate the kind of story told in works such as Game of ThronesDune or Romanzo Criminale where influential individuals clash against each other to shape the destiny of a kingdom, a planet or ... the City.

Whose King will emerge victorious?
How many lives will be lost or ruined for the King's ambition?

Designed for 2-4 participants.
Zero Prep.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
