In today’s post we are going to be showcasing some of the most recent reviews for Valeria Card Kingdoms (the base game, specifically). In future Showcases we will highlight some of the expansion reviews but we’re going to start off where the whole series began.
The land of Valeria is under siege by hordes of monsters. You and your fellow Dukes must recruit citizens and buy domains to build up your kingdoms and slay the foul creatures that lurk in the surrounding lands.
“I love Valeria Card Kingdoms. I probably won’t say that enough. I’ll say it a lot, but it won’t be enough. This is a really good game.”
Jeremiah Isley- Jeremiah is known to his gamer friends as the guy with the renowned “Nerd Room”, a room in his home that has pretty much been taken over by games and gaming supplies, due to Jeremiah’s attempt to run an eBay store for about a year. Jeremiah’s gaming interests include pretty much any board game, as well as several “Dead” or out of print collectible card games.

“I really do love this game, a lot… This game is maybe the best at engaging players around the table… It’s just overall a really good game. I’m going to be honest, it’s just good”.
