CROWN OF EMARA (Pegasus Spiele, 1 to 4 players, ages 12 and up, 45-75 minutes; $49.99)
The kingdom of Emara is prosperous and at peace – but good times do not last forever. Wise King Theodorius, needing to prepare for a successor, has come up with an interesting way to determine the most worthy of his want-to-be heirs: Whoever manages to attract the most immigrants to the kingdom AND provide food and housing for them to garner their support will become the next king. This is the challenge faced by players as they compete to win the Crown of Emara.
