Use your muscles and your magic to unearth riches!

Dig collapsed tunnels and carve large rooms by raising the overturned statues of your ancestors to their place of honor in the heart of the mountain. Timing and tactics are essential to restore your home to its former glory and win the crown! You'll need to expand your tunnels to connect buried gold and materials to your workshops that can transform resources and help you rebuild the overturned statues.

The statues are essential for scoring points, and you'll use carts to move them through the tunnels to the heart of the mountain. An important aspect of the game is the cascade production. You start with a line of four trolls, and each troll shows the combination of resources - gold, stone, iron, marble, carts, runes and hammers - that it produces. When a new troll is engaged, place it above two other trolls, forming a "pyramid".

The new troll activates and gains its resources, and all the trolls below it also activate and gain the resources they can carry. In this way, as you hire new trolls, you gain more and more resources as the end of the game approaches. The game ends shortly after the last player has hired his sixth troll, then the player with the most honor (won for digging tunnels, digging large rooms and moving statues closer to the heart of the mountain, including on matching pedestals) is crowned King of the Mountain and wins!

  • This game was played and recommanded by Gus & Co, here its opinion:


    In the Hall of the Mountain King est un jeu complexe, exigeant, à la fluidité et à la cohérence évidentes. Un gros jeu, incroyable, captivant, profond, aux mécaniques bigarrées, subtiles et succulentes.

    Un must-have de 2020 !
