Based on character-driven fantasy novels and RPGs, Call to Adventure allows 2-4 players to compete to create the hero with the greatest destiny. Starting from humble origins, players use cards to build their characters, cast runes to overcome challenges and generally choose each step down their path of advancement, whether it be towards good or evil. The game plays out in three acts, which together will tell the story of the characters.
The Kickstarter campaign not only offers a pledge for the base game but you can make a higher pledge to include an exciting expansion – set in the world of Patrick Rothfuss’ The Name of the Wind!
“The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear are two of the most critically-acclaimed fantasy novels ever written, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring their characters and themes to this expansion. Fans of the books will love this expansion, but anyone can enjoy it. Most of the cards feature Heroic Fantasy themes that can be brought into any fantasy world. Stay tuned to updates for more about this expansion!”
The first expansion, included in the Kickstarter project, as well as others to follow, will add new mechanics to the base game as well as new Challenges and Destinies.
Call to Adventure is created by Chris and Johnny O’Neal, designers of the hit game Boss Monster. You can pledge for it on Kickstarter until August 13, 2018. The project has already met its funding goal and is expected to ship in November 2018.
