Element! Coming in March from Rather Dashing Games!

Street Date: March 1, 2017


$34.99 SRPMaster the forces of nature in Element!

Fire. Water. Earth. Wind. These four Elements have driven mankind's mythology, philosophy and science for thousands of years. Now master these primal forces in this easy-to-learn but deeply strategic game.

Element, the latest release from the creative minds at Rather Dashing Games, is a unique strategy game for 2 to 4 players, ages 14 and up. Players take turns drawing and placing Element stones to encircle their opponents' Sages (player pieces).  Each Element has unique properties used to block an opponent's movement. Feed walls of flame, move raging rivers, raise impenetrable mountain ranges and even bend wind to your command.

Transform one Element into another with the Rule of Replacement or sacrifice stones to help your Sage avoid capture. Understanding the subtle, diverse and powerful nature of the four Elements is the key to surrounding your opponent and claiming victory.

Interactions between the four Elements and the Sages ensure that the game never plays the same way twice. Element's rich gaming experience makes it perfect for tournaments and organized play.

Boardgame Corner gave Element the first-ever Cornerstone Award prior to its release, praising it as "a great strategy game with some puzzle-like elements. One of those games that keeps you coming back for more, with every experience being unique in some way."  

  • Game Board
  • 4 Unique Sages
  • 120 Element Stones
  • Embroidered Bag
  • Element Rules Sheet

Conan: Kushite Witch Hunters

$24.99 SRP

The Overlord gains more of both swords and sorcery with the Kushite Witch Hunters collection for Conan. Its four distinctive miniatures, each of which comes with its corresponding unit tile, allow you to push the heroes to their limits with powerful spells and precision strikes. Sorceror Shubba wields powerful magic. Skilled warriors Shafiah and Ghayoor strike with deadly precision. And Afari makes the heroes pay dearly for their insolence with his deadly counterattacks. Altogether, these units introduce a wide range of new abilities, and their distinctive miniatures immerse you deeper in the game's Hyborian adventures.

Conan: Dice Pack

$9.99 SRP

When you find yourself with your back to the wall amid the pulse pounding, asymmetrical battles of the Conan board game, you'll be thankful for the new dice from the Conan Dice Pack! Your adventures may vary wildly from scenario to scenario, but there's always action, and the six custom dice from the Dice Pack (two red, two orange, and two yellow) allow your heroes and Overlord, alike, to attack, counterattack, cast spells, and reload their crossbows faster and with deadlier precision than ever.
