Following the acclaimed success of Grimm Forest, Druid City Games has released their next game, Sorcerer City, on Kickstarter. As of the writing of this article, Sorcerer City has already doubled it’s initial funding goal (with 23 days remaining). So what is Sorcerer City?
Sorcerer City, from designer Scott Caputo (Voluspa & Whistle Stop) mixes tile laying and deck building into a strategic game that is kept moving by a casual timed element. Imagine if Carcassonne, Dominion, and Galaxy Trucker were combined into a magical strategy game of sorcerer architects competing to see who could gain the most prestige! Walk with us down the streets of Sorcerer City!
As is the case with all Druid City Games, Sorcerer City is full of gorgeous components but the buck doesn’t stop there. The game play is quite unique. Each player will have a set time to build your city by laying tiles in the best strategic means possible. Over time, however, you will have opportunities to better your tiles and thus allow you to build a better city. But watch out, there is a monster phase that will add unique monsters to each player to add to the mix.
Additionally, Sorcerer City will have a deluxe copy available that replaces components with metal coins and plastic miniatures along with a deluxe game box.
Druid City is not only known for their beautiful components, but their unique game-play. Sorcerer City seems as if it won’t disappoint. You can head over to the campaign here to learn more as well as fund the project.
