SolarFlare Games has returned to Kickstarter to seek funding for their new game, Archmage Origins.
Archmage Origins is a light, fast and fun game for 2-4 players. The game is a unique blend of tableau management, bidding, bluffing, area control and memory.
Quick to play, easy to learn and challenging to master; Archmage Origins is a great deal at just $9 (delivered) on Kickstarter.
Archmage Origins is a game where players take turns manipulating the field of monsters and focusing their mystical power to “enlist” monsters to form the strongest force possible.
The goal is to control the strongest force of monsters from the Realm, which is made up of cards indicating the monster that occupies that space and its power level.
Players take turns peeking at the cards to determine where the most powerful monsters are hiding, deviously moving the monsters around, and strategically placing their Mage Cards around the borders of the Realm. Once all the Mage Cards are in place, players compare the power value of the magical energies that intersects at each monster. The player with the higher total mystical power value gains control of that monster (usually). The player who collects the most powerful force of monsters wins.
