WatUR: Royal Game of UR, ModURnized

No Comments

The ancient two-player race game from the cradle of civilization gets upgraded with printed circuit board technology

WatUR is based on the Royal Game of Ur, a game that became popular in Mesopotamia in 2500 BCE. This version has been redesigned with new motifs from the ancient Sumerian culture of the original game. But instead of shell inlaid in a wooden board, the fish, turtles, mountain goats and stars are etched in copper on fiberglass. These symbols are all related to Enki, the Sumerian God of Water.

The boards are cut into the unique arrangement of twenty squares with computer controlled routers. Paired with custom molded black and white dice and melamine stones, the game of WatUR is a beautiful and durable game that will last a lifetime.

Perdition's Mouth - Revised Edition

No Comments

A gritty, ruthless, Euro-style, co-op dungeon crawl, praised for its replayability and unique gameplay by players of the 1st edition

This is not your typical dungeon crawl. Unique and intuitive Euro-style mechanics combined with strong co-operation and a dark and deeply immersive theme put Perdition’s Mouth in its own category. It combines the tactical elements seen in blockbusters such as Gloomhaven, the struggle to survive from Posthuman, and the awesome dungeon crawling of Descent.

No dice? Rondels? No gamemaster? Hand management? Crucial cooperation? All in a dungeon crawl? Yes! Keep reading and see...

The game designers of Perdition's Mouth: Abyssal Rift (Timo Multamäki, Thomas Klausner and Kevin Wilson) set out to implement a new kind of dungeon crawl. One that embraces the European school of game design with clever mechanisms which emphasizes strategy and minimizing luck. Cooperation, planning and the enemy response deck eliminate the need for chucking dice, creating a tense combat environment with meaningful decisions! The rondels provide another tactical layer, including the enemy’s devious and challenging AI.

Delve into past, present, and future to bring forth epic characters, powerful spells, and ancient artifacts. Destabilize your opponents and banish them from the timeline to carve the future as you see fit!

Temporal Odyssey is built to pick up and play. Setup takes moments, and the rules are simple. Cards are easy to learn and integrate into your plans even in your first game. Adapt your strategy and react to the needs of the moment by selecting cards from an ever-changing card pool.

Between games, alter your time period decks with different classes to create a new timeline, which will introduce new strategies on subsequent plays!

Temporal Odyssey is quick and cutthroat. The casting of a single spell or the arrival of a new character can drastically shift the balance of power, forcing you to play adaptively and proactively to thwart opponent's plots.

Richard Garfield's Carnival of Monsters

No Comments

This fast-playing card-drafting game challenges 2 to 5 players to hunt and collect the most dangerous monsters of myth and legend.

Richard Garfield’s Carnival of Monsters combines card drafting and set collecting for a game experience that is at once familiar and refreshingly new. 2 to 5 players begin with a small number of Lands, which they can use to play Monsters. At the beginning of each of the game’s four Seasons, each player is dealt eight cards—which can include more Lands, Monsters, or other cards they might be able to use to improve their carnival. A normal game takes around 45 minutes and we suggest players to be age 10 or older.

At the same time, all players choose one card to keep, passing the rest to their neighbor. You can play your chosen card immediately, or pay one coin to save it for later. Of course, if you can’t play it now, you’ll have to pay to keep it!

Collecting more Land cards allows you to play more and bigger Monsters.

Playing Monsters is the key to scoring points: Every Monster is worth points at the end of the game, and if you play the right kind of Monster in the right Season, you can earn more points and coins during the game.

Staff cards provide a permanent bonus for your carnival, from new ways to earn coins, to Hunters that can protect you from dangerous Monsters!

Events give you a one-time boost.

Secret Goals are kept hidden until the end of the game, when they add surprise points to your score!

Thanks for the service! Please add RPE Miniature’s Wizard Conclave to the list. $30 for 10+ metal miniatures. I backed the KS for Frostgrave-compatible figures: An academic hireling that can be used as an apprentice, and an animated broom which could be used as a construct!
