Eggertspiele has announced Era: Medieval Age, a new game from designer Matt Leacock. Not only is Era being pitched as a spiritual successor to Roll Through the Ages, but also, the first roll-and-build game.
In Era, players will be using three-dimensional pieces (churches, farms, mills, castle walls, etc.) to build up medieval towns on their personal boards. The dice represent different classes of medieval society.
“Era: Medieval Age is made even more challenging as players interact with each other in ways such as extortion, scorched earth, and, of course, disease!”
The other piece of the announcement is that Era: Medieval Age marks the start of a series of roll-and-build games from Matt Leacock and Eggertspiele. No specifics were provided about other games, but Era is planned to debut at Gen Con later this year.
Era: Medieval Age is designed for 1 to 4 players, ages 12 and up.
