Betrayal Legacy: Board Game
$75.00 SRP
SDI
 


Betrayal Legacy marries the concept of Betrayal at House on the Hill — exploring a haunted mansion — with the permanency and multi-game storytelling exhibited by Daviau's Risk Legacy and other legacy games that followed. Betrayal Legacy consists of a prologue and a thirteen-chapter story that takes place over decades. Players represent families, with specific members of a family participating in one story, then perhaps an older version of those characters (assuming they lived) or their descendants showing up in later stories.

Why would people keep exploring a haunted mansion for decade after decade, especially when horrible things happen there? Curiosity, I suppose, or perhaps an ignorant boldness that comes from the belief that we know better than those who have come before. Look at all that we've learned, marvel at the tools we have at hand! Surely we'll all exit safely this time...

As with other Betrayal titles, the game is narratively-driven, with elements that record the history of your specific games. The tools mentioned earlier, for example, become attached to specific families. This isn't just a bucket; it's my bucket, the one my grandpappy used to feed his family's pigs when he was a boy, and while you can certainly use that bucket, I know how to wield it best from the time he spent teaching me how to slop. Yes, it's an heirloom bucket, and when kept in the family, I get a bonus for using it.

Blue Moon City

$39.99 SRP

Blue Moon City, once the capital of the land, has been reduced to rubble. The long war of succession is over, and the various people left in the city are looking to rebuild. They are working hard to return the city to its former glory. But
only one group will lead the reconstruction, and thus have the right to rule in this new age of peace.

In Blue Moon City, players are looking to restore the buildings of the ancient capital. Collecting together work groups from among the populace, they add their contributions to the reconstruction efforts. When a building is repaired, it gives bonuses to any player that helped, but a bigger bonus to the one that contributed the most. Those rewards can come in the form of Crystals, which are offered up to the central Obelisk. Once a player has made the required offering, they will ascend to leader of Blue Moon City.

Sugar Blast

$49.99 SRP

Making sweet combinations can be such a blast! In Sugar Blast, players look to make connections between same-colored Candies to create Blasts! They must swap out two adjacent Candies to make a string of three or more of the same type. They can then remove the matched Candies and adjust the unique tilting board so that Candies slide down to fill in the missing spaces. Finally, they fill in Candies at the top from ones chosen randomly from the bag. The bigger the Blast they create, the more Candies they will earn for their efforts.

Players are going to look to make big moves, but must be careful not to leave valuable opportunities for their opponents. Players race to collect Candies and complete the Objective card. The first one to collect the necessary Candies will earn a sweet victory!

The Other Side! New from Wyrd Miniatures!

Order by Date: October 1, 2018
Release Date: October 2018

All miniatures supplied unpainted. May require preparation and assembly.
The Other Side: Core Rulebook
$60.00 SRP

The Other Side is a streamlined game intended to be easy to pick up and learn while still providing an exciting, tactical experience for players.

The epic battles taking place across the Earth are played out on a 4 x 6 table with scattered, light terrain. Alternating activations keep you involved in the action every step of the way, while a five turn game keeps the fighting quick and bloody. The average game lasts about two hours.

The Other Side is won and lost by how well your troops complete their mission, creating an ebb and flow to the battle as objectives are fiercely contested throughout the entire game.

Includes world background information, seven stories, and the game rules.


The Other Side: King's Empire: Allegiance Box: Charles Edmonton

$90.00 SRP

Charles Edmonton is not someone you trifle with. He is a canny sniper who was present in the battle of London, and he is prepared to fight for his country until the end.

Edmonton does not specialize in killing a large number of troops, but enemy Commanders have learned to fear him. Piercing means he flips two cards on a Penetration flip and takes the better one, and he can always trigger Headshot. This gives his action Precise, which means that enemy Commanders can't use nearby troops to absorb the blow (they will instead rely on their Assets).

Charles Edmonton does not change his tune when he goes to Glory, he just gets better at it. He increases the range of those near him. He gets better with his gun.

Perhaps most importantly, he has the ability, with "Where'd He Go?" to move up to 16". If he hits his Snapshot trigger, he can even take a shot after. This gives him a potential two shots a turn and movement... Enemy Commanders live in fear!

Contents:
  • Charles Edmonton, a King's Empire Commander 
  • 2 Squads of Royal Rifle Corps (9 models, 5 sculpts for each) 
  • Squad of Infiltrators (9 models, 5 Sculpts for each) 
  • All unit cards
  • Allegiance card
  • King's Empire generic,and Charles Edmonton specific, Assets (Earth Fate Deck, A measuring tape,Cardboard tactics tokens) 


The Other Side: Abyssinia: Allegiance Box: Prince Unathi

$90.00 SRP

Prince Unathi is a well-balanced battlefield Commander. Field Test allows him to make better use of Prototype Assets, and Call for Reinforcements helps him keep his soldiers alive. 

His only attack is the powerful Poison Rocket, able to do a Strength 2 hit to an area, and, with a good success, create a permanent piece of Hazardous Terrain.

Upon going to Glory, Prince Unathi doesn't learn any new tricks, but he does become better at those he knows. New Triggers on his Actions give them extra potency, allowing his entire army to benefit from his switch to Glory.

Contents:
  • Prince Unathi, an Abyssinian Commander
  • 2 Squads of Mehal Sefari (9 models, 5 sculpts for each)
