The Family Zone is a new range of games from MAGE Company designed for families. The games play in around 15-30 minutes for ages 8+ and feature awesome gameplay and clever twists.
The first title, Carrotia is a light, co-operative tile placement game for 1 to 6 players where the rabbits must explore the wilds and collect enough food to feed the colony while avoiding the owl, hawk and other birds as they swoop in causing mayhem.
Secondly is The Cohort, a fast-paced card game for 2 to 6 players where you are racing to be the first to assemble a Legion to prove yourself to Caesar as the best of his commanders.
And finally, the third game in the line is Wrong Chemistry, an ‘easy to learn – hard to master’ game that includes funny references to real elements from the periodic table. Players try to change the pieces on the board to match the shapes on the cards in their hands.
The games will launch at the UK Games Expo in June 2016 and can also be pre-ordered from Mage Company’s webstore.
MAGE Company would like to announce two new additions to their “Family Zone” line of party games for friends and family, Carrotia and The Cohort.
Carrot supplies are getting low and the rabbits must brave the wilds to collect enough to feed the colony! Time is short, the pathways long and the birds are circling overhead, looking for easy prey.
In Carrotia, players work together collaboratively to build three different mazes of increasing size. One of the players is the Master Rabbit, whose job is to dash from entrance to exit within a specific number of moves, as outlined by the current mission card. As he does so, he will be scooping up precious carrots while avoiding the owl, hawk and other birds as they swoop low over the zones, causing mayhem and mischief. The other players take on the role of supportive rabbits, lending their unique special abilities to assist the team and and thwart the hungry predators.
Carrotia is for 1-6 players, and includes the following components:
- 40 tiles (70x70mm)
- 3 hourglasses (30, 60, 90)
- 27 quest cards (70x70mm)
- 6 character cards (70x70mm)
- 6 bird tokens
- 30 carrot tokens
- 2 arrow tokens
- 1 wooden rabbit
- 6 custom dice
- 1 Ruleset
It is time to polish your armor and sharpen your sword, for mighty Caesar has called for his legions to assemble. So snap them into line as quickly as you can, disrupt the plans of your fellow commanders and show Caesar that your Legion is the greatest in all the Empire.
In The Cohort, players must race to be the first to assemble a Legion and show Caesar you are the greatest of his commanders. Each Legion is made up of 3 different Cohorts and seven different types of units: Praetorians, Catapults, Centurions, Sagittarii, Equites, Legionaries and Velites. Each turn, players draw two cards, keep one and give the other to another player. This card can be kept in hand, or triggered to create a Cohort. Until a Cohort is complete, however, their rowdy behavior works against the recruiting player.
The Cohort includes the following components:
• 6 Primus Pilus cards
• 18 Praetorian cards
• 18 Centurion cards
• 18 Catapult cards
• 24 Sagittarii cards
• 24 Equites cards
• 30 Legionary cards
• 30 Velites cards
• 1 Rulebook
Both games feature brief play times and are accessible to ages 8 and up. You can learn more about Carrotia and The Cohort by visiting the MAGE Company website.
