Throne of Hastinapur

Description
The Kurukshetra War, also called the Mahabharata War, is a war described in the Hindu epic poem Mahābhārata. The conflict arose from a dynastic succession struggle between two groups of cousins, the Kauravas and Pandavas, for the Throne of Hastinapur. It involved several ancient kingdoms participating as allies of the rival groups.

An Akshauhini was a battalion consisting of 21,870 chariots; 21,870 elephants; 65,610 horses and 109,350 infantry as per the Mahabharata. The smallest group called a Pati was formed by 1 chariot : 1 elephant : 3 cavalry : 5 infantry soldiers (1:1:3:5). In each of these large number groups (65,610; 109,350 etc.), the digits added up to 18. A total of 18 Akshohini fought the war (11 on Kurava side and 7 on Pandava side). These auspicious numbers were thought to provide these battalions with the best odds of success at any scale of battle.

To score victory points, you will need to present the most influence on the regional leaders. To do this, you will devote corresponding tokens to them and whoever has the most influence of that leader will win their favor, earning you victory points. Each player also will be secretly building a “Pati” using that exact 1:1:3:5 ratio of chariots, elephants, cavalry, and infantry.
