In a faraway fantasy realm, the king has called upon his wisest and most capable to oversee his newly acquired lands. Each of his talented governors (that's you!) will need to call upon the help of the king's trusted advisors. Some of them might not be nice people, but they have skills and resources that a budding governor could find very helpful...But being a governor in Kingsburg isn't just chatting with advisors and building pretty buildings! There is a constant threat to the kingdom by menacing and frightening enemies who constantly seek any weakness that will allow them to flood into the provinces and cause mayhem and destruction! Can you protect the lands entrusted to you while building the most glorious province for your king? Come to Kingsburg, and prove yourself worthy!

For me it sits nicely in between Stone Age & Lords of Waterdeep on the complexity side of things, giving a few more options than Stone Age with the turn limit that Lords of Waterdeep has but at a faster pace. Plays well with 4 and 5 players and after a few turns getting used to it the game plays at a comfortable speed so an hour is ample time to play a game.
The artwork on the board is excellent and overall the production value is top notch, nothing feels cluttered and there is a logical place for all items.
I have noticed that certain tactics seem to be favoured for victory but as the dice determine the change in turn order and what you can collect as well as the built in catch up mechanics and rewards for doing well it is a brilliantly balanced game.
I think the game is beautifully designed -a work of art. Likewise the game-mechanics which seems to compensate players falling behind through bad luck with the dice. The icons used are clear and help you to learn and memorize the finer points of the game (except for ties: a tie-guide card or five would have been useful). And of course the expansion is there to add some more twists if everyone starts to tire of the base game and dream of gameplay tweaks. In summary I love this game, the only problem is getting hold of it!!!
