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.

Bluff Your Movie Knowledge with King of Movies: The Leonard Maltin Game

King of Movies: The Leonard Maltin Game

For forty years, Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide served as the film geek’s Holy Bible, an annually updated softcover brick of a reference book, packed with thoughtful, witty, and occasionally weird capsule reviews of thousands of films. Those synopses are at the heart of King of Movies: The Leonard Maltin Game, a tabletop casual party game of creative invention and hilarious deception. 

In King of Movies, it doesn’t matter if you’ve seen every film ever made or if you’ve never seen a movie in your life. The fun is in the fibbing. One player reads a movie title and the other players invent a short synopsis in Leonard Maltin’s unique style, with the goal being to trick the other players into thinking theirs is the real Maltin review. If you choose the real Maltin or you fool another player, you score.

Featuring handsome packaging with art by Mondo all-star Matt Taylor, the game contains everything you need to play the game with up to six players.

Stuck at home, apart from your movie-loving friends? Not a problem. One person can own the physical game and everyone else can easily play along via Zoom with the King of Movies app for iOS and Android. 

If your synopsis is extra creative, your insane/brilliant/outrageous movie idea might just become a future cinematic sensation. Snap a photo of your best and most creative King of Movies synopses and post them to Twitter and Instagram with #MaltinKingofMovies. On January 1st of each year, Leonard Maltin himself (!!!) will choose one synopsis that will be officially optioned by Drafthouse Films. King of Movies: The Leonard Maltin Game is available for pre-order.

The game is for 2-6 players, ages 3+. It’s designed by Ant Timpson, art by Matt Taylor, produced by Tim League and Mondo Games, and written and edited by Zack Carlson. It’s expected to ship in September 2020 and retails for $25.

Mondo Has You Celebrating 4/20 with the Stoner Parking Lot

Stoner Parking Lot

Puff puff pass with the Stoner Parking Lot which is up for pre-order on Mondo.

From Forever Stoked Creative and Mondo Games, Stoner Parking Lot is a card game for 3-7 players where your team looks to sneak out of show for a little smoke without alerting all the other scavenger stoners looking to take a hit.

To do this you’ll need the essentials, like weed, a mixtape, a bong, lighter, six-pack, and pizza. Once the six cards are collected, you’ll need to communicate with your buds. If the other team catches you, they’ll want to join but you only have enough weed for you and your friend!

The game features art by Arik Roper and Chris Bilheimer and is expected to ship June 2020. Stoner Parking Lot comes in a tin box with 50 cards, 7 guitar picks, and a rulebook. Games should take about 15 minutes.
