Take Matters into You Own Hands in Maiden’s Quest!

WizKids has announced the upcoming card game, Maiden’s Quest, with design by Ken Shannon, who has brought you games such as Approaching Dawn: The Witching Hour and Tournament at Camelot. A fair maiden can only wait to be rescued for so long, and at some point, they just have to do it themselves.

Maidens who are escaping the tower will use cards in their hands to fight enemies and overcome various obstacles. As you play, the game’s difficulty grows as the number of enemies increases and they become more active. An innovative turn-and-flip mechanism allows each card to represent up to four items, encounters, or allies.

This fun and easy to learn game takes 10 to 30 minutes to play if you play non-stop. Or play one round at a time, which is only 30 seconds or less! Each encounter resolves separately, so you can stop and stow away the deck at any time, returning to play exactly where you left off. Also, the game is played solely in the hand, so no table space is required! Box contents include enough for true solo (1-player) play, co-op, or competitive 2-player games. With multiple copies, even more players can join in and be part of a large, multi-player experience!

Maiden’s Quest is expected to release June 2018 for $19.99.

Get Ready for Randomly Ridiculous Rules in Letter Go!

Wizkids has announced the release of its card-based party game, Letter Go! Designed by Marcus Ross and Cara Ryan, three to six players write words on their white board using the available letter cards but score points only for the cards they are able to claim before their opponents!

Before play starts, everyone gets a white board, dry erase marker, and two consonants that they keep hidden from the other players. In the center of the table, vowels are displayed equal to the number of player. Also, numbered tokens, again equal to the number of players, are placed within reach. On the count of three, the 60-second egg timer is flipped, every player reveals their consonants, and the game begins! Write a word that’s four letters or more using the vowels in the center and your opponents’ letters, NOT your own!

Simply writing words down isn’t the only thing happening in this game. Every round, two Rule Cards are drawn, and they MUST be incorporated into your word! Will you have to write your word backwards? Maybe you’ll need to draw an eye whenever you write an “E”. You might even have to sign your name on your opponents’ white board! Each letter of the alphabet has two rules associated with it, so there are countless combination of crazy antics!

Write your word, complete the Rule Cards, then grab a scoring token! This determines who scores first once everyone is done with their word. The point value of each letter is indicated by the number of stars above it. The player that took the 1-token scores all the letters in their word. Vowels are worth nothing or -1, depending on the game variant you choose to play. Play continues for 5 rounds, and whoever has the most points at the end WINS!

Are you ready to enjoy some wacky word play? Then head over to your Friendly Local Game Store to pick up Letter Go! for $24.99 T-O-D-A-Y!
