This is a fun dice game (but to call it just a dice game is misleading!), where the goal is to create the greatest fantasy adventurer. The game starts with everyone selecting a character (and gender). Each character has their own goals so choose wisely! From there, there are roll and draft dice to assemble character attribute scores. Purchase weapons and armor to outfit your hero. Train to gain skills and discover your hero's traits to prepare them for their journey. Earn Reputation by constructing the perfect character. The player with the highest Reputation wins the game and will surely triumph over whatever nefarious plot lies ahead!Why we chose this game for Board's Edge:
- Meets the challenge - the twists in this game make it a great new game for an advanced board gamer
- Many different mechanics - we like that this game involves not just dice drafting but also resource management, worker placement etc.
- This is a good mid-weight game for someone looking to move in something more complex without committing to long legacy or campaign style games (yet!)
