But I’ll let the guys from Fantasy Flight fill you in on the details, with a bit from their press release…
Fantasy Flight Games is excited to announce the upcoming release of Rune Age, a deck-building card game of power and conquest in the fantasy world of Terrinoth! Designed by Corey Konieczka, Rune Age is a dynamic scenario-driven game that puts 2-4 players in control of a faction setting out to complete objectives based on the game’s scenarios. Raise your armies, take control of cities, and obliterate your foes in a realm gripped in conflict. How will you pave your path to victory?
Rune Age is a unique deck-building game in which players choose a scenario that establishes the game’s victory conditions. With four included scenarios, Rune Age gives you many different obstacles to face while also setting establishing the players’ allegiances. Some scenarios pit the players against one another while another unites them against a common foe, creating a fully cooperative deck-building experience. These different scenarios challenge players to develop new tactics every time they play.
The four factions in Rune Agecome from all corners of Terrinoth: the Daqan Lords, the Latari Elves, the Uthuk Y’llan, and the legions of Waiqar the Undying. All four of these factions have their own strengths and weakness, providing unique deck-building strategies no matter which you play.
This looks like it will be another polished card game from these guys. Anyone who has played the Call of Cthulhu LCG, will know that Fantasy Flight know their cardboard.
However, one big question still remains… what happened to the Blood Bowl: Team Manager LCG?
Where is it???
