Kings of Israel is a board game taking place in Israel (the Northern Kingdom) during the reign of its kings up until Israel’s destruction by Assyria. Players are on a team and each person represents a line of prophets that are trying to remove evil and idols from Israel, while building altars to help guide Israel in the upcoming difficult years. If the players are able to build enough altars before the game ends, they win. If the group runs out of sin cubes or idols, or if the timeline token reaches Assyria destroying Israel, the prophets lose.
The game board is a map of Israel with many important locations and nations shown. Between these locations are roads and in addition the cities on the sea are connected by sailing routes. These roads and sailing routes are how the prophets travel around Israel.
On the left hand side of the board is a list of all the kings of the Northern Kingdom and this list is also used to keep tract of what rounds in the game. At the beginning of the game a marker starts at the first king, King Saul, and then primarily goes down one space every turn until it hits the bottom, which represents the destruction of Israel by Assyria.
During the game evil might appear at each location and idols might also be built. When sin increases at a location with an idol then evil will also expand to all places that are connected to that location by a road. This is the heart of Kings of Israel.
