In The Shadow Of The Emperor Board Game


Drake says: "In the Shadow of the Emperor is set in Germany in the late middle age and players represent noble and powerful dynasties fighting over the title of the emperor. To be an emperor, players need the power of the electors, who decide who gets to be the emperor. To become an elector, players need to control the electorates: the kingdoms, counties and the archdioceses of Germany. The goal is to acquire the most victory points."


John says: "This is a unique game with area majority, elections, and a few other interesting mechanics. The no-luck factor and amazingly elegant production will make this game an offbeat favorite."


Ralf Burkert


Germany in the late middle ages! It is a time of flourishing cities, influential bishops, the powerful popes, and a pompous aristocracy. In such a volatile climate, no dynasty can remain in power for long. Several aristocratic families seek to acquire the crown of the emporer. But this decision lies in the hands of the seven elector. 2?4 emporer candidates use their knights and cities, marry their barons, and work to influence the electors. But all efforts are useless if the candidate is not elected to be emporer. But, in the shadow of the properly elected emporer, are always those who want to displace him and become the new emporer.
