River Horse Launches The Hunger Games: Mockingjay The Board Game Kickstarter

Oct 6, 2018

Riverhorse has launched a Kickstarter campaign for The Hunger Games: MockingJay the Board Game!

Panem is in revolt. After Katniss escaped from the quarter quell to the mysterious District 13, she joined an all-out rebellion. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – The Board Game is a strategic board game where two to four players must employ all their wits in order to free or control Panem.

At first glance, the Capitol seems to have the upper hand with larger resources and the support of most of the districts. As the resistance spreads, the Capitol will find that their iron fist can only crush one assault at a time. This forces them to choose the most important targets and make tactical decisions in order to break through to the heart of the resistance, District 13, before the rebellion overwhelms the entirety of Panem.

Each round, the districts that are not uprising give the Capitol power and the Capitol will move its forces to shore up the districts or prepare an offensive against District 13. The Resistance can spring up anywhere and must choose between spreading thin to sow rebellion or staying safe in larger numbers.

Each player has control of Mission or Operation cards which are played into districts to bolster defenses, add rebellion or even move units out of an unfavorable situation. These actions are not guaranteed success however and your heroes must be placed wisely to give your side the upper hand. Will you focus on your own agenda or try to disrupt your foe?

Combat in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – The Board Game is quick, the resistance make their rolls and the remaining Capitol units fight back meaning that districts can have a mix of Capitol and Resistance forces by the end of a turn.

Finally, the districts have rebellion tokens added to them or taken away depending on the forces and effects in play. The more rebellion tokens a district has the higher the chances of its uprising. If enough Districts join the Resistance they win the game!

Dec 17, 2017

Friendship comes in many colours.

Take your adventure far beyond Equestria’s borders with this: the first sourcebook for Tails of Equestria. Based on MY LITTLE PONY: THE MOVIE, this book contains everything you need to bring new and exciting characters, locations, and stories to your Tails of Equestria game. With new player options and tons of Gamemaster info, The Official Movie Sourcebook is a fantastic way to expand the boundaries of your Tails of Equestria game.

NEW LOCATIONS
You’ve left the comforts of Equestria behind—ahead of you lies a mysterious realm of unknown adventure, hidden lore, and magical wonders! The Official Movie Sourcebook contains expanded details on the locations featured in MY LITTLE PONY: THE MOVIE, in particular the bustling streets of Klugetown, the ancient citadel on Mount Aris, and the underwater realm of Seaquestria! As well as detailed descriptions, this book also contains advice for Gamemasters on how to incorporate these locations into a game in urban and underwater adventures.

NEW NON-PONY CHARACTERS
A parrot swings from a chandelier, flips in the air and lands with panache. A Lizardfolk explorer guides his friends through Klugetown. A Hippogriff soars through uncharted sky to deliver a vital message, and a Cat carefully disables an underwater ruin’s trapdoor. The Official Movie Sourcebook contains four new playable non-pony races:

Nimble, roguish Cats.
Swashbuckling Parrots, with striking plumage.
Brave and honourable Hippogriffs.
Shrewd and intelligent Lizardfolk.

EXPANDED RULES
If you’re looking to bring more depth to your Tails of Equestria game, these rules are for you! Both within and beyond Equestria, adventurers often meet factions and organizations of many kinds. The faction and reputation rules presented within give a bit more context to these relationships and help keep track of who the players know, whether that reputation is good or…not so good.

Optional vehicle rules detail how players can obtain, customize, and use their own personal vehicles. Beyond Equestria, long distance travel becomes a lot more difficult, so having your own airship is a real advantage!

A NEW ADVENTURE!
‘The Beasts of Black Skull Island’ is the perfect way to kickstart your groups adventures outside Equestria. Join the crew of adventurous pirate Captain Rosella and hunt for the legendary treasure of Black Skull Island! But beware, somepony else might have gotten there first…

NEW CHARACTERS & CREATURES
The Official Movie Sourcebook contains loads of new stats for NPC characters from MY LITTLE PONY: THE MOVIE. You’ll find everything from friendly faces like Capper and Princess Skystar, to the villainous Storm King, Tempest Shadow, and their minions.

All of the new content and rules included in The Official Movie Sourcebook are, of course, 100% compatible with all other products in the Tails of Equestria range. So saddle up, take to the skies, and seek out adventure in the wide world ahead!
