It’s a Viking Saga’s Endless Pass from WizKids this April

WizKids has announced the card-based adventure game, Endless Pass which will be released in April 2018. Designed by Nuria Casellas, two to six players take on the role of a Viking, either nameless or a Legendary Hero, and explore the Pass while not only fighting the never-ending hoard of Endless, but rival Vikings as well. The goal: Eternal Glory!

When a Viking chooses to Search the Pass, they draw cards from the Pass Deck. These can be useful items, or dangerous Endless. Using Action Cards, a Viking fights back,  killing the beast and earning a Glory Point, Evade, or Block. The later 2 means that though the Viking is safe, the Endless continue on the path to the next player.

What does a Viking do when there are no Endless to fight? They attack another Viking, of course! Swing a sword or throw bombs at another in an attempt to steal Glory or Health. Be cautious, a good Viking won’t go down without a fight, ready to defend and retaliate at a moment’s notice.

You can pre-order the game now and it retails for $24.99!

Working Together Is Your Key to Victory in Team Play – Out Now from WizKids!

WizKidsTeam Play is now available in North American game stores! Licensed from Schmidt Spiele, you and your partner work together to complete your mission cards and earn points before the other team(s). These missions are various combinations of numbers and/or colors, such as 2 pairs of uneven numbers, or having 3 low numbers, or 5 consecutive red numbers, etc.

Unable to directly say what your goals are, you and your teammate must be able to read each other’s needs, helping to accomplish missions by passing crucial cards. The other team(s) are also trying to accomplish missions, so you must work smart and fast in order to score the most points. You are hard pressed to do this on your own, so team work is the key to winning!

Don’t have an even number of players? That’s okay, the rule book goes over an odd player count version of the game. Players have a larger hand count, but cannot pass cards between anyone. You are a team of one in a 3 and 5 player games, but the goal remains the same. Complete missions and earn more victory points then the other players.

Think you and a friend have what it takes to work together and fulfill the various missions? Or are you looking for an easy “pick up and play” party game?

Be sure to pick up Team Play from your FLGS today for $19.99!

Become First Knight in Lancelot – Available Now from WizKids

WizKids has announced their newest game, Lancelot, is now available in North American game stores. Designed by Mario Papini and licensed from Ergo Ludo Editions, 2 – 4 players take on the role of a Knight of Camelot within the Court of King Arthur. Your main goal is to travel the lands of ancient Britain, complete quests, and grow in virtue to be elected First Knight, Lancelot, and win the heart of Queen Guinevere!

Players take turns moving clockwise around the game board, stopping at various locations like The Stronghold for weapons, The Lake to find the legendary sword Excalibur, The Dragon to complete quests, and even searching for The Holy Grail. Players are free to move where they want, but should plan their moves carefully while they work toward collecting Virtue Points. When all players have worked their way around the board once, a new round starts, and after 7 rounds, whoever has earned the most Virtue Points wins.

Begin each round by taking a seat at The Round Table! Each spot gains advantages and bonuses based on a famous figure from the legends of Camelot. King Arthur helps gain more virtue, Merlin gives a free potion, even the evil Morgana grants a unique ability; able to circle the board TWICE! Choose an ally that best suits your play style, or switch it up and see whose special skills work with your goals.

Prove your worth through knightly virtues! Court ladies, defeat enemy knights, and so much more can be done in the land of Camelot. Just don’t fall too far behind the other knights, else risk losing the chance of earning the pristine title of becoming First Knight!

Pick up Lancelot today at your FLGS for $54.99, and take your place at the table of legends!
