Create a thriving barony by claiming territory and raising buildings. Use actions to gather resources and knights to protect your realm, while avoiding the watchful eyes of the king and pope. Make your barony worthy of establishing the realm’s first cathedral!
Barons is a card game which uses four different decks representing different types of land: mines, rivers, forests and pastures. Each deck contains cards representing actions, buildings (including 5 church/cathedral cards), and 9 knights.
The cards have three functions: they can either be used face up as an action, knight or building; face down as land or discarded as money to pay for other cards.
To win, you must first build a Church and then a Cathedral in your barony. The game ends immediately when someone builds a Cathedral.
