In a high tower, an Alchemist prepares potions, using vials filled with otherworldly fluids. In a sacred grove, a Druid grinds herbs for a mystical ritual. In the catacombs, a Necromancer summons a bone dragon... Welcome to the world of Res Arcana! In it, Life, Death, Elan, Calm, and Gold are the essences that fuel the art of magic. Choose your mage, gather essences, craft unique artifacts, and use them to summon dragons, conquer places of power, and achieve victory! In Res Arcana, each player is a mage, vying for power against their rivals. Each player has a personal deck of just 8 artifacts to work with. Can you use them efficiently to claim monuments and places of power before your rivals seize them?
What sets this game apart from the crowd? It packs a real punch in just 20-30 minutes (once you get the hang of it!). We love fast playing, highly strategic games.
