In Kingdom Builder, the players create their own kingdoms by skilfully building their settlements, aiming to earn the most gold at the end of the game. Nine different kinds of terrain are on the variable game board, including locations and castles. During his turn, a player plays his terrain card and builds three settlements on three hexes of this kind. If possible, a new settlement must be built next to one of that player’s existing settlements. When building next to a location, the player may seize an extra action tile that he may use from his next turn on. These extra actions allow extraordinary actions such as moving your settlements. By building next to a castle, the player will earn gold at the end of the game, but the most gold will be earned by meeting the conditions of the three Kingdom Builder cards; these three cards (from a total of ten in the game) specify the conditions that must be met in order to earn the much-desired gold, such as earning gold for your settlements built next to water hexes or having the majority of settlements in a sector of the board. Each game, players will use a random set of Kingdom Builder cards (3 of 10), special actions (4 of 8), and terrain sectors to build the map (4 of 8), ensuring you won't play the same game twice!
8 different game board sections (each with a unique map on front and a generic score board on back)
35 cards (25 terrain cards (5 x 5 types) + 10 Kingdom Builder cards)
160 settlements (40 x 4 colours)
4 gold markers
8 summary cards

Kingdom Builder is very simple to understand, plays fast, and has numerous different game boards so the setup changes each time. The winning conditions are in part selected from cards drawn randomly, so again replayability is extremely high.
It takes about 40-60 minutes to complete and gets better/more challenging the more players you have. You build your board at random by choosing 4 panels and placing them together and have different scoring systems each game depending on which cards you choose so each game is different.
The game is a lot of fun and would defiantly recommended it
I feel like there should be some suggested 2 player variant of the rules by the developer, but there aren't. There are suggestions on the web to use 2 or 3 tile boards which we will try next as that seems like a very viable suggestion. Overall I'm still very happy with the game. I just want to warn anyone out there buying it for primarily 2 player games that you may want to tweak some of the rules to make things a little more competitive.
Endless variants of objectives and the game reflects the personalities of the players. Best with four people
