    New Game!
Tower Of London

It is not known when the ravens first came to the Tower of London, but their presence there is surrounded by myth and legend. Unusually for birds of ill omen, the future of both Country and Kingdom relies upon their continued residence, for according to legend, at least six ravens must remain lest both Tower and Monarchy fall.

In Tower Of London, 3 to 5 players vie for control of the tower using their influence to occupy different buildings and gather ravens.  The first player to get 7 ravens wins. If no player obtains 7 ravens, all lose and Britain falls.
