Crossroads Inn: The Innkeeper’s Creed is a strategic and economic board game that, like its digital original, will allow players to manage the development of their inn. The game takes place in the kingdom of Yorevale, where – absolutely accidentally – monarchs keep dying, and their illegitimate children have to compete with each other for influence and power. Players will take on the roles of royal bastards and try to take over the crown.
To avoid a bloody civil war, a deal is made, and an honorable bet is born: whoever builds the best inn will become not only the “king” of local gastronomy but also the king of all of Yorevale! So put on aprons and chef’s hats, grab a spatula – and get to work!
In Crossroads Inn: The Innkeeper’s Creed players will build an inn from scratch and prepare unique meals, all to meet the expectations of guests from various social classes. It doesn’t matter if it’s simple and folksy Distressed or sublime and capricious representatives of the nobility – everyone wants to drink and eat well. The gameplay will be based on predicting – and blocking! – the actions of the rest of the bastard siblings who run the competing taverns. The one who unscrupulously uses the gold, rumors, and weaknesses of their opponents, will win. There is room for many innkeepers in the kingdom… but there can be only one king!
Crossroads Inn: The Innkeeper’s Creed offers many ways of achieving this goal. Buying new furniture, getting unique recipes and ingredients for dishes, well-trained employees – everything can help the player achieve the final victory. And if that’s not enough, seductive Vedetas and silver-tongued bards will take care of the needs of even the most demanding guests.
Crossroads Inn: The Innkeeper’s Creed offers:
🍺 Thrilling strategic and economic gameplay for 2-4 players!
🍺 Two dishes on one plate – become the “king” of gastronomy, and at the same time… the king of Yorevale!
🍺 Five different social classes of guests whose favor the players must win. Distressed, Outlaws, Travellers, Townsfolk, and Nobles – each class prefers a different type of food and interior design!
🍺 “Prestige track”, or the way to one’s heart is through their stomach – a unique mechanic that allows you to win the game with fame and prestige points.
🍺 A system of spreading negative rumors about the competition. Decide whether to slander other players politically, economically, or perhaps with the help of rumors from the Yorevale travel routes.
🍺 A unique fantasy world knew from the original PC game – but served with ‘a pinch of salt.’
Hire and fire employees; plague your opponents with an arsenal of dirty tricks.

The one who builds the best inn in the kingdom will become the next king! And yes, you take the role of one of the pretenders to the throne.
