What is Borders of Kanta about?
After a mysterious calamity struck, the Realm of Kanta has reopened its borders. Clans now compete to rebuild their wealth by claiming the lands they lost. Allied states now dominate the economy. Every clan sends its own envoys to claim states, thereby opening borders.
Riches flow to participating clans when six states share open borders. Competing clans are suppressed by neighbouring allies.
A player chooses one of eight role cards that identify their clan and its strengths. The aim is to be the wealthiest in this new era. A bird’s eye view of Kanta’s realm is superimposed over a hexagonal grid representing the realm’s states in the game.
Each player starts with the same number of hexagon tiles (anywhere from 8 to 20 depending on the number of players). Each of these “council tiles” represents a group of six members from your clan. Each turn, you send these councils out to reclaim states, placing one tile.
Rings of claimed states provide players with wealth. Clans earn gold for each of the six claimed states, proportionately to the amount of representation that clan has in each ring.
Players also gain wealth and abilities through action cards. Earn cards by claiming several states that produce the same type of resource (e.g. 3 wood-producing states).
Perils and opportunities abound, including states still dealing with the plague, and mysterious island states.
The game ends when everyone has placed all of their tiles. The player with the most wealth (consisting of coins and coin value of action cards in hand) wins.
