Mondo Games announces Disney Shadowed Kingdom

Disney Shadowed Kingdom

Mondo Games has officially announced Disney Shadowed Kingdom, an easy-to-learn 2-Player co-operative card game designed by Imp House Games. Available now at MondoShop.com and select Target stores, the game will also see a North American retail release this October.

At a $20 cost, Disney Shadowed Kingdom contains everything needed for play in both basic and advanced difficulty modes, and is adorned by breathtaking illustrations from artist Marcel Mercado. The narrative at the center of the game was developed with expansion in mind; future releases in development feature innovative mechanics and play modes designed to further the story arcs and abilities of the Heroes introduced in this game.

In Disney Shadowed Kingdom, players take on the role of brave explorers, navigating mysterious streets and alleyways in search for lost remnants of Magic needed to return the castle and surrounding areas to their former glory. The catch: Shadow is everywhere, preventing players from hearing and seeing one another. They must therefore utilize memory and deduction to communicate without speaking or signaling.

The goal of the game is two-fold: Discover Magic and Dispel Shadow from the Kingdom. Turns center around playing cards into a face-down grid in one of two directions, either forward, forcing your partner to discover cards pushed out of the grid toward them, or sideways, dispelling cards from the edge of the Kingdom entirely. Only by discovering enough Magic to save the Kingdom can you win the game, however, uncovering too much Shadow will lead to failure. Silently keeping track of which cards have been played and their current locations within the hidden grid is crucial for success.To keep things interesting, each location encountered while searching for Magic triggers in-game effects like randomizing the grid, peeking at cards, or discarding your hand. Fortunately, each player is able to enlist the help of their favorite Disney Hero (Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Daisy, or Pete) to activate special powers to aid in their quest.
