Celebrate 25 Years with The Great Dalmuti: Dungeons & Dragons!

The Great Dalmuti: Dungeons & Dragons

You can fall from the top of the heap to ruthless beholder-spawn in an instant – and that’s part of the fun in The Great Dalmuti: Dungeons & Dragons! To commemorate the 25th anniversary of The Great Dalmuti, Wizards of the Coast is releasing a new Dungeons & Dragons-inspired version of the classic card game. Baronesses with their highfalutin hats were turned to stone by snarky medusas, goofy jesters were chased into the castle moat by giggling gnolls, and the super snooty archbishops have all undergone the long process of ceremorphosis to become evil mind flayers. Building on the success of the award-winning card game designed by Richard GarfieldThe Great Dalmuti: Dungeons & Dragons will test players’ fates and status in a fun, easy-to-learn, and fast-paced card game. The deck includes 13 cards, including the iconic Great Dalmuti, and new D&D-flavored card names accompanied by beautiful and evocative illustrations by artist Harry Conway.

In the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game, the dice may control your fate, but in The Great Dalmuti, it’s about how cleverly you play the cards you’re dealt with. One round you’re polishing your royal crown, and the next you’re whacking rats in a filthy alley. Perfect for ages 8 and up and up to 8 players – it’s a gloat-filled, winner-take-all contest.

The Great Dalmuti: Dungeons & Dragons will be available everywhere in November – just in time for the holidays – and will retail for $14.99.

Fantasy Flight Games and Richard Garfield Announce a New Card Game KeyForge

As Gen Con kicks off, Fantasy Flight Games has announced a new game from the mind of Richard Garfield, the man behind Magic: The Gathering, KeyForge.

The game is described as one where “every deck is unique.”

It takes place in the world of Crucible, an artificial world built from pieces of planets from across teh stars. Archons clash in struggles leading their faction as they seek to gain power and knowledge.

KeyForge: Call of the Archons is the world’s first Unique Deck Game. Every deck is one-of-a kind with an Archon and mixture of cards. In the first set, Call of the Archons, there are more than 104,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 possible decks!

Each deck has a full experience with a deck that cannot be altered and ready to play ouf of the box. This forces you to really learn your deck and its combinations.

Within each of your Archon Decks in KeyForge: Call of the Archons, you will find creatures from three of the Crucible’s seven great Houses, each with a unique culture, history, and skill set that makes them exceptional.

There’s the:

Brobnar – brawlers
Mars – ray guns and flying saucers
Sanctum – angels
Logos – scientific experimentation
Dis – demons who steal souls
Shadows – rouges and thieves who steal
Untamed – reject civilization and live in nature

The game will also have a companion app to see how your deck fits into the community and where you can see the meta at large.

The game will launch in the fourth quarter of 2018 and ready for pre-order.
