Dive into a new expansion for Carnevale next year from the folks at TTCombat. Things are about to get weird (well, weirder) as part of this new campaign book which introduces new mechanics and more.

Blood On The Water - Carnevale

Blood On The Water // Carnevale

This new book starts off by introducing sixty pages of new background for the game. It covers the entire of the year 1795 in-game and will be penned, in part, by Gav Thorpe. New characters will join the fun alongside some unexpected surprises according to TTCombat.

As well as that, Blood On The Water will contain the FULL rules for Carnevale including all of the updates since it was released. So, if you want to dive into Carnevale you can just pick up this book and you'll be ready to go. The rules are also available for free HERE (included the updated rules when they release).

New rules are also in the mix including Reactions so you can act out of turn and ways to clamber across more scenery. Ziplines and boats for the win! This is also matched by new gang creation rules which allow for more customisation. There are also balancing mechanics in place with Ill Tide cards that can be used if you have more ducats to spend than your opponent.

Here is one of the new rules that they did preview in their article...

I like the sound of this. It means that the "spirit" of games in Carnevale is decidedly cordial and promotes a bit of back and forth between the players. It seems like just the kind of thing for those wanting to play a more narratively interesting game.

Finally, we also have new scenarios to look forward to. There are fifteen new scenarios in the book split over three campaigns. This means that you can follow the Blood On The Water story as it runs its course then add them into the mix for your general games too.

I really like how much effort TTCombat has been putting into Carnevale and its continued growth. The game stands out with its theme and mechanics and it deserves more tabletop time I reckon.

What do you think of Blood On The Water?
