Sweet Games

WizKids will partner with Sweet Games to publish their hit game Seeders from Sereis: Exodus in English. In Seeders from Sereis: Exodus, playersare Seeders building arks – giant colony ships – to escape their dying civilization.  Players compete to design the best ark for production. Each turn, cards which can be used to build the player’s ark or converted into resources are laid out on the board. Each card represents a different component of the ark – locations, items, personnel – and may have unique synergies between cards as well as a player’s unique power.  Players strategically place negotiator chips between the cards they want, using their alignment and position to determine who has the most influence over a desired card.  The player with the most influence over a card wins the card and adds it to their player board.

Seeders from Sereis: Exodus features immersive sci-fi art tells a deep, engrossing story. This is the first game set in the Seeders from Sereis universe, created by Serge Macasdar and Charbel Fourel.  Expect to see more game set in the Sereis universe, continuing the story of the Seeders and their search for a new destiny among the stars.

CMON Ltd has acquired the rights to the immensely popular The Grizzled from Sweet Games. Designed by Fabien Riffaud and Juan Rodriguez, the unforgiving coop game The Grizzled hit the scene by storm in 2015 with its stark emotional art from the late Tignous. CMON distributed the game in the U.S. and helped make the game and its first expansion At Your Orders! a success. The designers are currently working on the second expansion, The Grizzled: Armistice Edition, which will add a campaign mechanic to the game.
