The Old King's Crown is a card-driven conquest game where players take on the roles of heirs vying for control of an ancient kingdom. The objective is to use unique abilities and followers' traits to outmaneuver opponents across a map that encompasses various locations, from the castle to the necropolis. Players move their Heralds to claim locations and play cards facedown on the board, with the revealed cards determining the outcomes of clashes and granting rewards that contribute to achieving the game's primary goal of influence. The first player to reach a set number of influence and maintain it until the end of a round wins the game. The game is designed for 1 to 4 players, with a playing time of 60-90 minutes and is suitable for ages 12 and up. It is categorized as a card game with elements of fantasy and medieval themes, incorporating mechanics such as betting and bluffing, card play, conflict resolution, hand management, and variable player powers. "The Old King's Crown" is designed by Pablo Clark and published by Eerie Idol Games.
