WizKids Announces New Party Game, Letter Go!

lettergo_components

May 23, 2018

Wizkids is pleased to announce 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!

WizKids puts the Fun in Dungeon with Fungeon Party

WizKids is excited to announce a new game that puts the Fun in dungeon, Fungeon Party!

Designed by Brian Lewis, David McGregor, Marissa Misura, and Tom Jones, this is a fast paced, quest completion game which takes a traditional dungeon party and puts them in a truly nontraditional dungeon crawler.

2 to 5 players pick a class from a list of classic adventure choices; such as Barbarian, Cleric, Ranger, and Wizard, just to name a few. Each class has their own stats, which can be upgraded as experience points are earned, as well as a special ability that will help the party complete a pile of at least 6 quests.

Quest cards are drawn from a stack and placed in the middle of all players. Using a cell phone or stopwatch, a timer is set for 30 seconds per quest, so 6 quests would be a 3-minute timer. Someone yells “GO”, the top quest card is flipped over, and the goal is to complete all quests before the timer runs out! Sounds simple, but is it?

What types of quests would you expect in a Fungeon? Stack dice on your forehead, bounce dice into the box, knock down a meeple surrounded by dice, balance a meeple on a stick. These, and many more wacky quests await the brave adventures that travel through the corridors of a Fungeon!

Gather your party and check out this quick, easy, and FUN game to learn and play!Fungeon Party will be available at your Friendly Local Game Store June 2018 for $29.99. Pre-order today!

Endless Pass Available Now from WizKids

WizKids is excited to announce the release of their newest card-based adventure game, Endless Pass.

Designed by Nuria Casellas, two to six players take on the role of a Viking and explore the Pass while not only fighting the never-ending hoard of Endless, but rival Vikings as well. What are they fighting for? Eternal Glory!

The goal is simple: the last Viking standing or the first to earn 10 Glory, while surviving the turn, wins. If none of the players survive, then the player with the highest amount of Glory will take the honor of most worthy within Valhalla. To earn Glory, a Viking can either slay Endless as they appear in front of him or her or take it from another Viking in a surprise attack!

Each of the player boards are double sided. One side showing a generic Viking, all with the same stats, while the other is a named Viking Hero, such as Gunnar the Raider or Brynhild the Valkyrie, each with their own abilities. No matter what, each player has 10 health and needs 10 Glory.

Dark.Net Available Now from WizKids

WizKids is excited to announce the release of its newest game, Dark.Net!

In the late 21stcentury, four mega companies – dubbed the Big Four – have taken control of every aspect of modern society. People have two choices: sell their soul to one of the Big Four or make their own way in the Fringe – a world where reputation means everything, and information is more valuable than money.

Designer Richard Yaner shows a cyberpunk-style future where 2 to 4 players compete with each other to earn the highest amount of Reputation. To do this, players need to buy and sell Information from each of the Big Four and exchange them for other useful tools. Network Extensions are used to grow your influence, enabling you to gather additional Information per turn, and Network Boosters increase the amount of Information obtained from a Network space.

Building up your own network isn’t the only way to gain Information! Hire Informants to sit on other players’ networks and take Information from them. Infect their Networks with a virus that redirects all Information your way, or shut them down completely. You can use Information to make a Contact, a helpful ally that boosts Reputation and protects you from opponent attacks.

Just remember, the Big Four are always watching, and if too much information is taken from them, they go on the offensive. Roll the Retaliation dice and hope the Big Four show mercy on you and your growing network. If one of them hones in on you, flip a Response card and see what punishment the company dishes out. More players mean more Response cards, and after the last one is flipped, the game ends. Whoever has gained the most Reputation wins!

Wizkids Announces Endless Pass, A Viking Saga

EndlessPass4-800x800-768x768

Feb 23, 2018

WizKids is pleased to announce the card-based adventure game, Endless Pass. 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.
