About this Product

Ireland is awash with would-be kings, power-hungry pretenders, and self-professed rulers. The provinces are in disarray, and the common folk are paying the price. The land needs a leader.
In Brian Boru, players will strive to unite Ireland under their domain, securing control through might, cunning, and matrimony. Join forces to fend off Viking invaders, build monasteries to extend your influence, and gather support in towns and villages throughout the land. To become High King of all Ireland, you will need to navigate a web of shifting alliances, outmanoeuvre your enemies, and grab history by the reins.
Includes rules in English and German.

Biographical Note

Peer Sylvester started his career in boardgaming quite early, because his dad needed an opponent in chess. In third grade he wanted to become a professional chess player. Instead he turned out to become a teacher for math and chemistry. An award-winning board-game designer of titles like The Lost Expedition, The King is Dead, and Wir sind das Volk!, he has written a number of books on the subject.Deirdre de Barra is an Irish artist and illustrator. She has been involved with the Irish Small Press contributing to many comics, zines and anthologies, and in 2014 illustrated the comic Brian Boru and the Battle of Clontarf / Brian B├│roimhe agus Cath Chluain Tarbh. These days she no longer works digitally but has found her way back to traditional media, primarily pencil, ink and watercolour.
