Usually at this time of year, the Osprey Games team would be in Essen, Germany for SPIEL, the biggest gaming show in the world. Unfortunately due to the effects of COVID-19, the physical show isn’t going ahead – and as one of the highlights of the tabletop gaming calendar we’re all missing it!

Today we’re taking a look at our SPIEL release – The King is Dead: Second Edition from Peer Sylvester.

The King is dead. The kingdom is divided. Three factions - the Scottish, the Welsh, and the English - vie for control and, across the sea, foreign invaders prepare to take advantage of the chaos. Players must marshal their limited resources to influence this power struggle, while ensuring that the faction that rises to dominate the realm favours them above all other claimants to the throne.

The King is Dead: Second Edition refreshes the accessible yet strikingly deep game with updated graphic design, gorgeous new artwork, and a brand-new asymmetric game mode for advanced play.
