The King is Dead is a board game of politics and power struggles in the dark Arthurian Britain for 2 to 4 players.

King Arthur is dead. The nation is divided. The Saxons are coming.

The game is set in Britain just after the death of King Arthur. Players are potential claimants to the throne who operate behind the scenes manipulating the power held by various factions, to make sure that in the end, they have the most influence in the most powerful faction. It is a dangerous game, however, and if the players cause too much chaos, they will leave the door open for Saxon Invasion.

Now, more than ever, Britain needs a ruler who can unite the kingdom, but who will take the crown? Players work behind the scenes, marshalling their limited resources to give power to competing factions and gain influence within their ranks. Players owe loyalty only to themselves, however, are free to shift their allegiances as they see fit. Whoever has the most influence over the most powerful faction will rule Britain from the shadows. But be careful - too much infighting will give the Saxons an opening and put the entire nation is at risk.
