Gustavus II Adolphus is dead and the Kingdom is without a king. A heavy responsibility lies on the shoulders of the young Queen Christina, only six years old. Sweden is engaged in the Thirty Years’ War, the Estates are dissatisfied with Chancellor Axel Oxenstierna’s influence, the breach between Protestants and Catholics is wider than ever and the exploratory spirit of the age gives rise to new art and science. As a representative of one of the many factions around the Queen, it is your duty to enlighten Christina and show her the true path. But beware, the other representatives will not shrink from using any means to stop you!
The Queen's Path is a game about politics and intrigues in 17th century Sweden where each player represents a faction with a hidden agenda. The end of their intrigues is the newly appointed queen Christina of Sweden and their means include persuasion, agitation, manipulation and even assassination. They achieve this by carefully steering the queen towards influence of their own faction and away from influence of other factions. At the same time, they must closely monitor the other players' actions to guess their agendas. But beware, if your own agenda is too obvious, you may yourself become the victim of your opponents' intrigues!
