New games for April 19, 2019 - War, War and more War

Jason Tagmire

It's NEW GAME FRIDAY! And wow, what a hard one to title this week. When you see our new games, I imagine you'll understand. If you could come up with a better title, please share it because I STRUGGLED. :)

This week we have 3 new games this week!

  • Chain Mail Adventure Kit: Repel The Goblin Horde
  • Maquis
  • Shaolia: Warring States

This is a solid list this week! We have the next Chain Mail Adventure Kit, which joins the free base game and the previous Adventure Kit, bringing new monsters, maps, quests and even a character this time. We also have Maquis, which has been one of my favorite solo games for a long time. The app is amazing, and the tabletop version is free! And speaking of apps, there's Shaolia which looks like top iOS level artwork in board game form. The art direction is wonderful, and it's free too!

In honor of the Game of Thrones return, our game of the week is our very own little "game of thrones"... it's Blood Royals!

Blood Royals is a game about two relatives trying to claim the throne from a dying king. Secretly choose your action, reveal and then use your skills (and a bit of luck) to conquer lands and gain the favor of influential people with powerful abilities.

This is a roll and write game. All you need to play is the perforated game sheets in this book, some pencils, and some dice.

The product of years of clan wars, Blackwallen’s history is rich. Before recorded history, songs tell of a chieftain named Odif who led Clan Black to many victories and in time chiseled out the land of Blackwallen. He declared himself king and established laws for a royal bloodline. Descendents of Odif occupied the throne through centuries of in-fighting, war, and famine. To many, Blackwallen’s constant instability meant it was cursed. To others, it was just home.

One hundred years ago a new age dawned. Adjacent kingdoms were uninterested in conquering the land, and peace at home meant security in Blackwallen for perhaps the first time. With security came cultural and scientific pursuits and the king himself declared an “Age of Peace.”

King Leopold is the third king of the Age of Peace. He has levied trade agreements with neighbors into alliances. He is a young king, but already the people talk of his wisdom.

When he dies, a very real void will be left. His queen will no longer have a doting husband. His children will be without a loving father. The Orbly Street Tavern will no doubt miss its masked late night musician known only as “The Night Singer”.

The Kingdom of Blackwallen will no longer have their beloved monarch.
