Alderac Entertainment (AEG) has announced an expansion for Fantahzee, a game in which players are defending their town against hordes of monsters using dice.  In Fantahzee: Rogues Gallery “the town of Devil’s Burden is still under attack, and even more monsters are pouring in!  Ingenious goblins, led by the mighty troll king and his retinue, are now laying devious traps all over the town to hamper the stalwart defenders. It is time to call for reinforcements – the long-time secret society within Devil’s Burden: the Rogues’ Guild.”

The expansion adds a new type of playable hero, Rogues, to the game. The “sneaky, clever, thieving heroes” can help you overcome the Horde via their new special abilities, and Traps that require Rogues to overcome.

This new expansion is set to release on April 12, 2017.  For more information, visit the publisher’s website.
