Fresh off the reprint of Endeavor: Age of Sail, Burn Island Games has announced their second game, In the Hall of the Mountain King. In this game for 2 to 5 players, you will be playing mountain Trolls trying to rebuild your kingdom. It looks like each player will start at a different location on the board and build tunnels via polyomino tiles. Burnt Island is touting a “cascading production system’ for the game.
“A major aspect of the game is the Cascading Production; you begin with a line of four Trolls, and every Troll shows the combination of resources (gold, stone, iron, marble, carts, runes, and hammers) that it produces. When a new Troll is hired, place it above two other Trolls, forming a “pyramid”. The new Troll activates, gaining its resources, and any Trolls beneath it ALSO activate, gaining any resources that they have room to carry.”
According to the game’s page on the publishers website, In the Hall of the Mountain King will be coming to Kickstarter on February 5, 2019.
