Battle Across the Ages in Time Barons

WizKids has announced their newest game, Time Barons, is now available in North American game stores. Designed by Jon Perry and Derek Yu, 2 – 4 players must recruit Followers and use weapons from all ages to take out rival Barons and their own Followers.

You have 3 actions per turn to gain or move Followers, build a Site, play an action card, place attachments on Sites, or move up an Era. There are four Eras, each representing a different generation of technology, and the cards in a higher Era have stronger abilities. Action and Reaction cards are used to turn the tides of battle. Attachments slide into your Sites, providing much needed bonuses to you or penalties to opponents. With so many different combinations of cards, spanning over different decades, the possibilities seem endless!

To win, either reduce the other player’s Followers to zero or have the most after 3 piles of Era cards have been emptied. The game shines in a duel format, but can be played 2 vs 1, and teams of 2 vs 2. There is also a free-for-all format, as well as additional Expansion cards to add new Sites, weapons, and events to your game.

Pick up Time Barons today at your FLGS for $24.99, and use your wits to rule throughout time!
