Kings and Assassins might not have much allure for the solo board gamer, but it's hard to beat when it comes to multiplayer.
A well designed and quick playing abstract strategy game that unfortunately becomes repetitive after only a few plays.
Un jeu d'échec dans l'esprit, très tactique, jouant sur le bluff et l'anticipation, la stratégie de la perte pour le gain, dans un jeu qui prend tout son intérêt en version multi joueur en ligne ou en pass-and-play. King and Assassins est encore une fois un très bon jeu de la part d'Asmodee Digital, sous condition de jouer à plusieurs, étant donné que les parties solos seront vite trop répétitives.
