Glory: A Game of Knights is a 1-4 player worker placement and dice rolling game scheduled to launch on Kickstarter on November 13.
You play as a young ambitious knight in quest for fame and glory. On each round you will have to send your horse meeples to various spaces on the board, to gain actions and resources. These may be: training, praying at the church, gathering helpers or earning money. Visiting your lady also gives you a bonus. The game comes with a Romance deck that gives you advantages depending on the time you spend with her.
Jousting with other knights is a basic part of the game, and in the solo mode you will have to compete against an AI. In the action phase, the AI operates according to a set of cards that allow it to perform the actions that you don't. In the tournament phase, it begins with specific attack points which you have to counter by collecting your own points and rolling the equivalent number of dice.
The designers are medieval reenactors, so they presumably know their subject first hand.
