NSKN Announces New Games Present At Essen 2017

NSKN Games has announced some of the lineup that they will show off at Essen Spiel 2017 (October 26-29), and the games look fantastic.

Dragonsgate College is a new dice drafting and action selection game from the wondrous team of Thomas Vande Ginste and Wolf Plancke, authors of the award winning Yedo. 2-4 players take on the roles of fantasy school students from different houses, trying to develop into the best wizards, rogues and warriors. Build unique buildings, hire professors and assistants, and test yourselves in the training dungeon, in this gorgeous game, available for sale at Essen.

Teotihuacan: City of Gods is Daniele Tascini‘s spiritual successor to his 2012 hit Tzolk’in: The Mayan Calendar. This time 2-4 players will manage dice in a time-sensitive rondel, while worshipping the Aztec gods. Dice gain power over time, and players are given two choices with each placement – an action and worker upgrade, or a powerful bonus without upgrade. Players can develop new technologies, climb the famous temples, build houses for the citizenry, or construct the famous temple of the sun. Teotihuacan is due for release later in 2018, but will be shown at Essen.

Mistfall, Chronicles of Frost is a fast deck builder set in the fantasy card game universe of Mistfall. 2-4 players explore the familiar lands of Valskyrr, and can even play as one of the beloved characters from the previous games. Players are randomly assigned adventure chapter quests, which they then race to complete. Fight enemies, hire adventurer, explore lands to gain the most points. Players use deck building mechanics to gain new abilities, items and allies, while trimming the deck by retiring cards into your personal journal for fame. Chronicles of Frost will be featured in a Kickstarter Campaign early this November but will be shown at Essen.
