Lost Legacy – Shadow Thief Preview

Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG) posted a picture of the Shadow Thief card on Facebook as a sneak peek of their upcoming Lost Legacy line of games.

Lost Legacy is 16 card game from designers Seiji Kanai and Hayato Kisaragi played very much like Kanai’s last microgame success, Love Letter.  AEG will be releasing three themes that will have players bluffing their way to find the Lost Legacy card. In  The Starship, Flying Garden, and Whitegold Spire players will draw the top card, choose one of the two cards and carry out the effect on the card.  If there are no cards left to draw from, players guess who holds the Lost Legacy card in order of their “speed” indicated on the card.  By combining different Lost Legacy sets (while keeping only a single Lost Legacy card in play), up to six players can compete at the same time.

Lost Legacy is expected to release in August at Gen Con 2014.
