Adapted after the novella by Rudyard Kipling and turned into a movie staring Sean Connery and Michael Caine we have another adventuring rules set coming out in 2016 (September) from Osprey Games. We’ve got a look at the cover art for The Men Who Would Be Kings here…
The story in the film follows two rogue officers from the Indian army during the late 19th Century who go off in search of fortune and end up becoming kings of Kafiristan. It seems like the game will be focusing on that adventuring side of things, you’d hope, but also delving into the larger skirmishes from the period as well.
It will be interesting to see where the rules set goes and what it does differently from other games out there like Black Powder which would be good for this period too. We have quite a wait but it would be nice to speculate!
What do you think of the idea?
