By Order of the Queen is designed to give players a full fantasy campaign in one 90-120 minute game, by giving players just the highlights of a role-playing adventure.
Players must work together to keep the kingdom from falling apart while trying to complete three Queen's Orders to win the game.e Kingdom as they see fit.
During the game, players will draw a hand of heroes and take turns assigning them to quests, combat, or completing the orders of the Queen. As time passes the kingdom falls further into darkness, so players must work together to complete the Queen’s perfect plan to secure Tessandor’s future.
How to Play:
The main actions taken by the players are Fighting Against the Horde and Questing. Below are examples from the rulebook:
During Questing actions a player will draw an appropriate Location Card and go through the story of what their party experiences that week. All the Location Cards are written like small “Choose your own adventure” stories where dice rolls determine whether they are successful or fail during the event.
Fighting Against the Horde:
When a player decides to fight against the horde of monsters that terrorize the villagers of Tessandor, they simply will select a well-rounded party of four Heroes and then roll dice trying to score equal to or above the values on the Monster Cards in play.
And the World of Tessandor fights back!
After each round of play choices from the players, the Event Phase kicks in showing the players how the various threats are attempting to take down Noonshade Keep and the rest of the Kingdom. If the players can hold out and complete three Queen’s Orders before the realms run out of villagers or heroes, or the Queen loses the confidence of the regions, the players will collectively win!
