Crown of Aragón


Crown of Aragón is a card-based area control game set in the vast medieval kingdoms that controlled the western Mediterranean Sea, stretching from northern Spain all the way to southern Italy.  As a monarch of one of these smaller kingdoms, you will seek to prove your worth as a ruler and bring unity to the larger region by claiming the vacant Crown.

In Crown of Aragón, you and your opponent will struggle for influence by playing cards into three areas: Military, Political, and Economic.  Cards played into the Military zone represent your forces fighting for control of the nation’s resources through combat and conquest.  Cards played into the Political arena are your agents who must negotiate the perilous politics of the noble court.  Finally, those played in the Economic area represent the holdings and infrastructure that keep your kingdom running smoothly.  Once you have finished playing your cards for the turn, you must compare the strength of your forces in each area to that of your opponent, with the winner earning a sum of Military, Political, or, Economic influence equal to the difference. As the game progresses, the pendulum of power in each sphere will often sway back and forth between you and your opponent. 

So manage your plans wisely, for even while you are amassing an army at your enemy’s doorstep, spies may be negotiating a deal to have your advisors assassinated in your sleep.  Only a skilled tactician capable of managing all three spheres of influence will be empowered to wear the Crown of Aragón.  Fail, and you risk becoming nothing more than a vassal state.

Note: Influence trackers are not included with this product. We suggest you use three ten sided dice (Blue, Red, and Green) but you could also you use coins or beads as long as you have a way to count up to 10 in each area.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
