Most of us, when we were younger, dreamed of being a dashing prince or beautiful princess fighting away monsters and villains, while saving the day and being the hero! Heck, for all I know, some of us may still aspire to be tht person when we grow up! Thankfully, table top games allow us escape reality and delve into fantastic lands that are colorful, fun, and most of all, adventurous! This week, we share with you another Game Crafter game that does just that, Adventure Kingdom!
Adventure Kingdom will put you in the role of a dashing hero or heroine, who will have to use their guile, their abilities, their pets and magical items, as well as a lot of luck, to escape the evil clutches of Castle Orm! Orm, the dastardly villain, has captured you and your fellow heroes and heroines and has trapped you inside his castle. The only way out? You must capture a key from each of the castle’s rooms, find the hidden passage way out, and escape his evil plans!
Critical Review – Adventure Kingdom
The Lacuna Expanse is a region of space with millions of habitable worlds, but we were not here first. The Sābēn Demesne are the original inhabitants, and they want us out.
Work together with the other players to build a space station before the Sābēn can send enough enemy ships to wipe you out.
Each player builds out their own colony separate from the other players. Each building they add to their colony gives them additional abilities. The players trade to help each other build better colonies with the ultimate goal of working together to build a space station capable of defending colonies from enemy ships. To achieve this some players will build a space station lab while others use espionage or ships to fend off enemies. In the end, if you don’t work together, you will be annihilated.
This board game is based upon the popular online space game of the same name.
Crystal Clash is an easy-to-pick-up yet tremendously strategic card game for two players. One player picks the Light Deck and the other plays the Darkness Deck.
The goal of the game is to bring your opponent down to zero Crystals in their Crystal-Pool.
Each player starts with 10 Crystals (represented by 10-sided dice) and plays Characters, equips them with magical Relics and has them perform powerful Abilities. Your Crystals double as “Life Points” and resources.
At the beginning of your turn you draw 3 cards from your deck, then you may discard a card from your hand and add a number of Crystals to your Crystal-Pool equal to the Crystal Value of the discarded card (which doubles as cost to play the card from your hand). Then, in Main Phase, you may play Characters and Relics and have your Characters attack the opponent. Each unblocked attack results in 2 Crystals being removed from your opponent’s Crystal Pool. If at any point a player has no more Crystals left in their Pool, they lose the game immediately.
Crystal Clash consists of two preconstructed, well balanced decks with 40 UNIQUE cards each. All the cards are illustrated in Anime-Style by Manchen Yang (the Darkness Deck) and Laurie Thomas (the Light Deck).
