Mousquetaires du Roy board game (Rio Grande)
Condition:Near Mint Board Game
|Description||1625. D'Artagnan, a young man fresh out of Gascony with ambitions of becoming a musketeer for the King - a "Mousquetaire du Roy" - makes the acquaintance of Athos, Aramis, Porthos and the beautiful Constance, linen maid to the Queen. Soon he finds himself at the heart of an adventure with France's destiny at stake. Indeed, Cardinal Richelieu, prime minister to King Louis XIII, will stop at nothing to discredit the Queen of France in order to further strengthen his power in the country. To that end, he has arranged a grand ball where the Queen will be expected to wear the magnificent diamond jewelry given to her by her husband. Unfortunately, she has impulsively given the jewels to her lover, the Duke of Buckingham. This matter is all the more serious as the relations between the two countries are tense: England supports the Protestant rebels of the city of La Rochelle, to which King Louis XIII has arduously laid siege for a long time. With a lady's honor and the stability of the kingdom at stake, the Musketeers decide to intervene - but the perfidious Milady de Winter, an agent of the Cardinal, is determined to thwart them...
In this game, two sides battle against one another. On one side are the Musketeers: To win, they must finish their quest for the Queen's jewelry before time runs out. On the other side is Milady: Her objective is to prevent the Musketeers from completing their mission, whether by exhausting their time or by causing one of the events that end the game: military defeat in La Rochelle, dishonor of the Queen at the Louvre, or the death of Constance in Paris.
