New Games for August 6, 2021 - Micro Outcast Quest

Jason Tagmire

It's New Game Friday! David Wiley (Cardboard Clash) is here to tell us about the new games.

Here’s what is new this week:

        • AdvanceQuest: Among I, The Fungi
        • Micro Dojo
        • The Outcast

        The Outcast

        The Outcast is a solo RPG about reputation and redemption. Your character has been ostracized by a community they were once part of because of a mistake they say you made. You embark on a lonely journey fulfilling missions to try and restore your reputation.

        The game provides a unique setting generator that allows you to create a custom world for your gameplay in just a couple of dice rolls. 

        With a tailored, light-weight system, gameplay is focused on building up narrative and leverage so that, in the final scene, you can confront the accusations, and maybe redeem yourself from your alleged mistakes.

        The game also comes with three oracles and three generators to assist solo play and push your narrative forward in surprising and exciting directions (easily portable to other games as well).

        If you like solo RPG experiences, you won’t want to miss this one. Telling stories is fun with friends, of course, but the experiences you’ll create in this system will provide plenty of tales to share with others later on. If you’re tired of the old hack-and-slash adventures, this is sure to appeal with the slow climb toward repairing bridges - something we can all benefit from in our daily lives no matter how skilled we already are at it. The oracle and generator systems are fun additions to help things move along in unexpected ways.

        Micro Dojo

        You are one of two Daimyo - feudal lords of Edo Japan - tasked by the Shogun to bring prosperity to a small town. Carefully manoeuvre the town’s retainers to gather resources, build buildings, complete the Shogun’s tasks, and win favour. The most prosperous Daimyo will be granted the title to the town.

        Move around the board and execute actions to gain resources, build buildings, and/or score points. The neat trick here is you are moving space-to-space on a board and have two people to move, and you have to alternate between them. This means laying long-term and short-term plans on how to do what you need in order to defeat your opponent. Additional rules are included for advanced experiences, and this nice little 2-player game comes with really short rules to get you up and playing in no time.

        AdvanceQuest: Among I, The Fungi

        Adventure awaits and a sinister evil grows in the Great Myconid Kingdom, a tangled forest of towering mushrooms. Join forces with a brave mushketeer and fight back to back in...Among I, the Fungi.

        You want something new and unusual to pass the time in a solo experience? Try out the first episode in the new AdvanceQuest, where you create a character and their traits and then proceed through a sequence of storyline beats mixed with rolls for advancement and skill tests to surpass those events or encounters. Even if you’ve played games like Four Against Darkness, this is sure to offer something new and fresh in a small, quick-playing package. All you need are a handful of cards to print out, and at least a full set or two of polyhedral dice. Imagination not required, but certainly helpful in bringing your resolutions to life as you go.

        Game of the Week: Legends of Dsyx: Dragonvault - on sale for $1


        You are Citan the Gold, Dragon guardian of Merchants and Bankers. There isn’t a coin of gold, silver, tin or jade in all of Dsyx that hasn’t been touched by your subtle hands. You had a busy day of treasure counting planned. Until the blasted heroes showed up looking to take it from you. 


        Looking for variety in your roll-and-write gaming collection? The Dsyx series of 12 games has you covered. With a delightful fantasy setting, and with each game being extremely unique in what it tasks you to accomplish, you’ll be sure to get a lot of mileage out of these titles. Not sure where to begin? I recommend Dragonvault (this week’s game of the week!), which is a lot more fun than a single page solitaire roll-and-write should be. For instance, here you are a dragon protecting his treasure horde from heroes. Your score is based on how much treasure remains when the game ends.When it comes to easy-to-make PNP builds that play quickly and offer fun, this one hits all of those points..
