Rurik brings to life the ancient culture of Kievan Rus - the precursor to both Russia and Ukraine - with game design by Russian game designer Stanislav Kordonskiy and illustrations by Ukrainian artist Yaroslav Radeckyi.


Auction Programming. The gameplay in Rurik revolves around a central strategy board. Openly bid for actions with your advisors in this novel “auction programming” mechanic. Higher numbered advisors earn greater benefits, but lower numbered advisors resolve their actions sooner.

Pay bribes with coins to make your advisors stronger! They still resolve as their printed number, so you can resolve earlier AND earn greater benefits.

Ruling lands is important! It's easier to build and tax in lands you rule, although you can pay more to perform those actions even when you don't rule.

It costs you 2 build points to build in a land you don't rule, but only 1 build point in a land you rule.

Scheme to keep a reward for yourself and potentially lay a trap for opponents that may attack you! After attacking another player, you must flip over scheme cards - if you find a casualty icon you also lose a troop.

In Solo Mode, the AI changes between 3 modes throughout the game and within each mode has a different approach to bidding and resolving actions. 

Its bidding is only revealed one bid at a time so you are never quite sure how it will play! The dynamic automa opponent has received a lot of high praise from playtesters and reviewers alike. You can watch a full playthrough of solo mode below.
