Legend of the Three Pillars – the tabletop game

So here is an idea I’ve had bouncing around in my brain for some time: a tabletop/board game based on the power struggle for the Carathan throne.

Simply put, the idea is to accumulate resources towards making a successful bid for the throne while the other players do the same. Simple enough, but I’ve added a mechanic that requires the players to cooperate against threats to the Empire. Failing to do so means the game is lost for everyone.

In the most basic terms it is a 3-7 player game of resource management – accumulate resources and balance them between survival and victory.

I have uploaded an overview document which can be found here. Anything in it should be considered to be in the alpha stage of development.

Is this a game you’d play? Are there things you’d change? What games have you played that are similar?
