Arcane Wonders and Mesa Board Games are bringing the newest Dice Tower Essentials game, Viral, to stores in August 2017. In Viral, 2-5 players play viruses attempting to take over organs in an infected patient. Players have to be careful, though, since if too many viruses invade an organ, a CRISIS occurs and the host immune system will almost certainly come to wipe out the infection. Mutation cards allow players to modify their virus, changing its behavior and therefore your strategy. Virus is a new take on Area Control designed by Antonio Sousa Lara (City of Spies: Estoril 1942) and and Gil d’Orey (Panamax), with delightful whimsical artwork by Mihajlo Dimitrievski (Raiders of the North Sea, City of Spies: Estoril 1942), and plays in 60-90 minutes.
