Renegade Games announced a new card game called Atlas: Enchanted Lands. It’s a light fantasy themed card game with art done by the talented Beth Sobel and features a quick play time of 20 minutes for 2 to 4 players. In the game you will be playing down cards representing a time and place, with the different times being dawn, sunset, day, and night. Each time you play a card you have to pick whether to play for the time or the place, creating sets of it on the table. And it’s these sets you are creating that is the focus of the game because you get points for bidding on which sets will be completed and when. The game is being billed as easy to play while still having meaty decisions to make, and I tend to agree with them. The game is slated for release in the Fall of this year, and you can read the below press release for more information.
San Diego, CA (May 22nd, 2017) — Renegade Game Studios™, the premier publisher of unique games will release Atlas: Enchanted Lands Fall 2017. Designed by J. Alex Kevern (Sentient, World’s Fair 1893), Atlas: Enchanted Lands draws players into the magical world of an enchanted forest. Art by Beth Sobel (Lanterns: The Harvest Festival, Lanterns: The Emperor’s Gifts, Snow Tails), illuminates the landscapes at Dawn, Day, Sunset, and Night.
Atlas: Enchanted Lands is an elegant card game set in a world of fairies and magic. Play cards to reveal a certain place and time — and place your stake in one of the two. Explore a location at dawn, day, sunset, and night, or see what the whole land looks like in the dark. Each card offers two choices, and it’s up to you to uncover the world that awaits.
Players are challenged to predict the Time or Place that will be uncovered first. Cards laid on the board will complete sets. Depending on the cards chosen by the players, sets of similar cards or numerically ascending cards will be revealed, granting points to the players that deduced the correct combination.
“There’s something elegant and beautiful about simple mechanics that still challenge the players to really think about their choices,” says Renegade President Scott Gaeta. “We’re incredibly happy to be able to pair J. Alex Kevern’s polished design with Beth Sobel’s delightful illustrations.”
