Game of Thrones: Oathbreaker is a new social deduction game for 5-8 from Renegade Game Studios and the design team responsible for the popular Clank! series of games, Dire Wolf Digital. In Oathbreaker, one player is the King, while the others are secretly either loyalists, looking to keep the current king in power, or conspirators, seeking chaos. Missions are started, and each player secretly contributes influence cards to the cause, either fulfilling the requirements or jamming up the works. Players who contribute the most cards to a mission can place their house sigil with that pile. The cards in each mission are shuffled, and it is determined if the mission succeeded, aiding Order, or failed, leading to Chaos. Nobles who added their sigil to a mission can gain special rewards. The King can grant special decree cards to players, either helping or hindering whomever seems deserving. Look for Game of Thrones: Oathbreaker in stores this June, and check out Dire Wolf Digital’s web page for more information on this new title.
Welcome to the most popular bubble tea shop in Taiwan, where you’ll find rich, delicious milk tea filled with chewy pearls and jellies! To make an unforgettable drink, you’ll need to pay attention to crucial elements. More bubbles, less sugar, just the right amount of ice – all of this will make the drink taste different. Sounds good, right?
One player then rolls the ingredient dice, and everyone races to use the clear overlays to create a legal drink using all of the ingredients rolled. The first to complete their boba tea wins a customer card, and the first to impress 3 customers wins the game. Alternatively, the customer cards have drinks of varying difficulties players can attempt to create.
