Renegade Game Studios, in partnership with Lautapelit.fi, is bringing the excellent game Dokmus to North America in Q1 2018. Dokmus, by Mikko Punakallio, is a highly regarded abstract strategy game with a fantasy theme, taking place on the island of Dokmus. The island is made of 8 large square map tiles in a 3×3 array with a central hole, with each tile made of a 7×7 grid of small terrain squares. Each turn, 2-4 players draft guardian tiles, which provide the actions to move and rotate the map tiles. Additionally, each turn the players place 3 camp tokens on the board, next to their already placed camps. After 8 rounds, players score based on how many camps they placed next to special temple spaces, and how many camps they sacrificed to the volcanoes.
Renegade will also be releasing the expansion, Dokmus: Return of Erefel, which adds another guardian and new map tiles to the game. Read the details in the full press release on Renegade’s website here.
