THREE GAMES IN ONE: SACRED HILL, HIGH KINGS OF TARA, AND POISONED CHALICE.
From the Manufacturer
PROJECT KELLS - TARA: Inspired by the Book of Kells and its mesmerising patterns woven amongst the vellum pages, Project Kells evolved. Tara is a collection of three multi award-winning games steeped in the ancient legends of Ireland’s Celtic heritage and royal past. SACRED HILL: A connection game with a difference. Link all your ringforts together with bridge tiles to create a magical landscape of Celtic knotwork. Split your enemy up - “Divide and Conquer” - that’s the aim. All ages can enjoy a truly unique strategic experience. HIGH KINGS OF TARA: Introducing the kings in all their ancient power. Each player has three which do the work of building your ringforts. They move like the knight in chess and add many more twists and turns to the game, taking it to another dimension altogether. POISONED CHALICE: Shift gear with this one - it turns the tables - literally. It’s a battle of spirits between High King Lóegaire and St. Patrick. Players sit at right angles to each other, pitting their wits against the unknown powers of the enemy. Get your head around this, take control of the enemy and watch them squirm. STONE OF DESTINY: The mighty Stone of Destiny set atop the King's Seat will roar as it accepts the true High King of Tara. In this ultimate test of skill and nerve, victory rests on a knife-edge as you battle with your enemy to and fro. Ringforts are won and lost in the blink of an eye; so be wise in the art of attack and defence; protect them with your life. Once you’ve learnt the basics, be prepared to delve much deeper.
