Rise to Power in the King's council. Weave your political web. Spread rumours. Get your arch-rival beheaded! It's been a good day!

The King of Blackthorn rose to power on the strength of his sword but he has grown old and is no longer a vital leader of his country. Others have risen to power within his council. In a battle of subterfuge the councilors ruthlessly vie against one another for true control of Blackthorn. Whispers of treason echo through the halls. 

As a member of the Council of Blackthorn, you must build influence with the kingdom's factions to expand your political influence. Council of Blackthorn is about secretly gaining power, spreading rumours and convincing your rivals that you are not a threat. 

Using a unique mechanic for building influence players continue through the game unaware of their opponents influence tally until the end of play, never being sure who is ahead in the race to the throne. The King will behead one player for treason, but no one knows who it will be until the last dramatic moment of the game!

  • Game board
  • 80 Faction cards
  • 96 Treason cards

  • 6 Character placards
  • 24 Character tokens
  • 1 Right hand of the king token
  • 6 Turn sequence cards
  • Score pad.
