Call to Adventure is a tabletop game in which players compete to craft the hero with the greatest destiny. Play cards to build your character, cast runes to face challenges, and choose whether to follow a path of heroism or villainy. The core game mode is a 2-4 player competitive game, but Call to Adventure can also be played solo or cooperatively!
Call to Adventure features a unique "rune rolling" system for resolving challenges, a point-based system that encourages storytelling, and over 150 unique cards. Players begin each game with an origin card that provides their backstory as well as two "starter" abilities. Each round they may either acquire trait cards from the board or face a challenge. Challenges each have two possible paths a player can choose from. For example, players who encounter the Thieves' Guild may choose to train as a spy, or train as a killer. Each challenge has a difficulty that must be overcome by rolling successes on carved runes. The more a player has of the abilities required to overcome the challenge, the more runes they will be able to cast. Failed challenges lead players to acquire experience points that may be spent to "push" through tougher challenges. But beware, while some negative experiences will help your hero grow, too many tragedies set them on a dark path. As players' heroes grow in ability and experience, they move on to harder challenges, eventually facing deadly adversaries and acquiring more and more destiny points. The player whose hero has the highest destiny score wins the game.
Call to Adventure: Name of the Wind is a 75-card expansion for Call to Adventure based on The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss. This expansion, and others to follow, add new challenges, new destinies, and mechanisms unique to the author's world to the base game.
In Overlord, rival Boss Monsters emerge from their dungeons to conquer the Overworld. Each turn, players draft and place terrain tiles and monster tokens. Their goal: to craft the map with the greatest Power and become the ultimate Overlord!
Build your map by drafting Forests, Swamps, Caves, Camps, Graveyards, and Dungeon Entrances. Each terrain type has a different point value, and most increase in Power as you acquire larger sets. Players must balance optimal placement, set values, and disrupting their opponents' sets. You'll also need to manage monsters, which award points when grouped together or placed on matching terrain.
The game includes everything needed for up to 4 players: over 60 terrain tiles, over 50 monster tokens, 4 double-sided player boards, a scorepad, and more.
Long ago, your ancestors built great cities across the world. Now your tribe must explore forests, deserts, islands, mountains, and caverns to find these lost cities. Claim the ruins, build places of power, and restore the glory of a bygone age.
Unearth is a bend-your-luck game of dice placement and set collection. It plays in under an hour with 2-4 players. Each player leads a tribe of Delvers, represented by five dice (3 six-sided, 1 four-sided, and 1 eight-sided). Players take turns rolling and placing dice in an attempt to claim Ruins. The game's elegant core mechanic is accessible to players of all skill levels. High rolls help players claim Ruins, while low rolls help players collect Stones. This opens two paths to victory: claiming sets of Ruins or using Stones to build Wonders. Delver cards help you affect your dice rolls or dice in play, and Wonders can grant abilities that impact the late game.
The Lost Tribe is a three-in-one expansion that introduces the Lost Tribe of Delvers, who have hidden in secret canyons since the Darkness destroyed their world. With the Darkness returning, the Lost Tribe has also revealed itself to fight its ancient foe.
The expansion set adds new ruins, wonders, delver cards, and a new type of colorless stone to the game to enhance replayability. It also includes components for adding a fifth player as well as a solo version titled Against the Darkness that allows a single player to fight the Darkness over the course of a seven-scenario campaign.
