The king shall return... But before he does, the realm falls into anarchy and chaos. The lords of the kingdom struggle to improve their place and standing. New borders are drawn, and expanded through strength of arms and subtle maneuver. Each duke seeks to establish a claim over the most valuable parts of the kingdom before the king finally returns. In the dark of the Middle Ages, control of the land was the key to wealth and power. Can you control enough territory to become the most prestigious duke before the kings return? In Domaine, players try and form domaines by placing walls on the modular board. Completed domaines can then be expanded, even into your opponents'. Protect domaines by placing knights. Actions are taken by playing cards which have a cost associated with them. Gain money by selling cards and controlling mines.
