If It Weren't For That Meddling King!

El_Grande? is perhaps the archetypal MajorityPlacementGame?. It also has a King who comes around to inspect your provinces, leading ChadUrsoMcDaniel to wonder (SeattleCosmicGameNight20030201) how many other games there are in which a King tours the board, helping some players and causing trouble for others. "And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for that meddling King!"

Here are some games we've thought of with this mechanism; feel free to add others.


How about Pueblo??
