New from Asmodee! Chosŏn, Deus, Sun Tzu and more!

Coming in November!
$24.99 SRP

The Koryŏ dynasty is now defunct, replaced by the Chosŏn dynasty founded by General Yi. Unfortunately, soon after its founding, intriguers nicknamed the “Watchers“ appeared all over the realm of Chosŏn. And ever since, feud and disorder has sprouted everywhere. But this time, instead of the usual political contests and sneaky manipulations, armed warfare has become the rule. The influence of the “Watchers“ on some families has grown very strong and some whisper they have such extraordinary powers as allowing them to travel through time.

So the legends of Brittan claim that a cauldron full of gold appears at the foot of each rainbow, and that tribes of Korrigans (similar to leprechauns) are competing to be the first to find it. Each player controls a tribe of Korrigans, scouring fields to pick up four-leaf clovers. Clovers either give Korrigan gold coins or attract companions (hares, squirrels, birds, mice, frogs, and moles) that will help their Korrigan friends move from field to field in different ways.
