Created by Jeremie Kletzkine (Naova, The Cohort), Siege pits would-be kings against each other in a battle for dominance. Each player has a set of character cards, which they arrange in front of them to form a castle wall. The other players use their own characters to attack the wall, hoping to deduce the location of the enemy’s King, knocking that player out of the competition.
Siege comes with 42 heavy-duty plastic laminated cards, including an expansion card. The game is for 2 to 6 players, ages 14 and up, and plays in about 10 minutes. MSRP is $24.99.
AEG plans to release an upgraded version of Love Letter in November as well (see “‘Love Letter’ Gets Upgrade in ‘Premium’ Edition”).
