Description
KINGDOMS OF DECEIT
KOD is an epic battle of powerful Kingdoms. In this game you start with a hand of adventurers who shall help you achieve the main objective of the game - to collect 15 experience points.

"game of infinite possibilities and strategies"
"ultra high replayability"
"highly addictive"
"dozens of abilities, items, spells, quests"

"3-6 players (best in 4-5)"
"90-120 minute game time"
"a sandbox social deduction RPG take that and push your luck game"

In Kingdoms of Deceit, you control up to 3 characters and so do your opponents. All players crave glory but only one can get it and that is why each player is on their own against everyone else. There are plenty of ways to play the game and it is up to you choose which paths you take. Will you rush out into the world to complete quests or will you be more diligent in your studies before venturing forth into the unknown? Will you have no mercy spilling blood and preying on the weak, or will you form alliances and economic pacts? Will you be deceitful or will you choose to play honestly? Only you are the true master of your own destiny. No two games of KoD are alike. At first, you will probably be dazzled by the freedom you have at your disposal in this game, but before you know it, you may find yourself discovering your own unique strategy.

On your turn, you may perform a number of actions ranging from: buying items, attacking others, stealing from others, fighting monsters, casting spells, completing quests, gaining gold, poisoning others, and seducing others. Lying is its own reward. If you dare, you may take actions of characters you do not have in your hand. Anyone can call you out on your bluff, though, in which case you will be forced to kill one of your own characters out of shame. Lastly, the higher level you are, the stronger most of the actions will be, but the more you become a target.

DISCLAIMER:
Despite the fact I created the whole game, certain images such as the table background, the kingdom card, a few items are taken from Google Images but I have an artist (Chef Rude US) who is gradually replacing the placeholder art for an original one. Shoutout to anyone who has helped with the previous art: Dasha, Sandgirl, DarkLordJimmy, Kelo, Nettleflap, Roger.

Missing cards asset in the Antique items deck. https://i.imgur.com/HCWNuzt.jpg

Looks to be just one card near the middle of the deck.

A really great take on a very scarce genre of tabletop games, community is great and despite lots of mechanics, its easy to learn hard to master. a solid addition to any tabletop gaming night

I love playing this game and it has a very welcoming community to support it. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a new game to play.

KoD is a the best "Take That" game I think I've ever played. Supporting so many styles of play from an aggressive "kill everyone" to just completing quests. I can honestly say Kingdoms of Deceit is a game that has a bright future ahead of it, and anyone who hasn't tried it should get a hold of Zdenek and do so right now

Tyrant, I am adding you on steam, I need you to explain to me exactly what happened. I have by the way changed things around - this is where players will be able to get the base game from and if they want the exampded game, they will have to add me as a friend and ask me for it.

Today's update introduced two broken assets that will NOT trigger an error in-game because Imgur uses an 'image is removed' placeholder instead of a proper 404.

there are very few games like kingdoms of deceit, each player can have their own gameplan vastly different from their opponents. While the end goal is the same, there are many ways to collect and use your resources, and if that doesnt appeal to you, you can always focus on catching others in their lies, after all, this is Kingdoms of Deceit.

Looks complicated, but rules are simple. Nice game for many hours :D
Doesn't feel boring after playing multilpe runs

To new players who are intimidated: It may look complicated, and to an extent it is, but if you've got someone to teach the rules it really isn't that difficult to learn by playing.
