Nauvoo Games Acquires License for The Reckoners

Nauvoo Games, publisher of the popular Stockpile game, has recently acquired the rights to create a game based on the Reckoners book series by Brandon Sanderson.  There are three books in the series so far and boast “heart stopping action, laugh out loud quips, and some of the most unique superpowers“.  Not much has been revealed in terms of specifics on the game, but Nauvoo Games has said;

The Reckoners board game, designed by Seth Van Orden and Brett Sobol, allows players to take on the roles of the novels’ protagonists and work together to save the world. In The Reckoners board game, players must overcome multiple ruthless and power-hungry ‘Epics’ – the equivalent of supervillains – that each have unique, game-impacting abilities. Players must decide how to resolve these competing priorities together to eliminate epics and ultimately win the game. How, when, and where you act will determine your victory or failure.

About Dragonsteel Entertainment

Brandon Sanderson was born in 1975 in Lincoln, Nebraska. By junior high he had lost interest in the novels suggested to him, and he never cracked a book if he could help it. Then an eighth grade teacher, Mrs. Reader, gave him Dragonsbane by Barbara Hambly.

Brandon was finishing his thirteenth novel when Moshe Feder at Tor Books bought the sixth he had written. In 2005 Brandon held his first published novel, Elantris, in his hands. Tor also published four books in Brandon’s Mistborn series, along with Warbreaker and then The Way of Kings and Words of Radiance, the first two in the planned ten-volume series THE STORMLIGHT ARCHIVE. Four books in his middle-grade Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians series were released by Scholastic. Brandon was chosen to complete Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series; the final book, A Memory of Light, was released in 2013. That year also marked the releases of YA novels The Rithmatist from Tor.

Currently living in Utah with his wife and children, Brandon teaches creative writing at Brigham Young University. Brandon is a #1 New York Times Bestselling Author and winner of the prestigious Hugo Award. He also hosts the Hugo Award-winning writing advice podcast “Writing Excuses” with Mary Robinette Kowal, Howard Tayler, and Dan Wells.
