Kolossal Games Launches The Omen Saga on Kickstarter
May 2, 2018 - 6:10am
The Omen series of games are stand-alone, two-player card games where players are demi-gods vying for control of the three cities between them. Each game features two distinct game modes: standard, where players draw from a collective deck, and draft, where each player drafts from his or her own deck. A Reign of War, the first in the series and originally published in 2011, is the largest of the games and includes additional rules to the original release such as feats. Edge of the Aegean, published in 2016, featured streamlined play, new unit types, and new ways for players to earn victory points. Both games carried a Greek Mythology theme. With the latest Kickstarter campaign, Kolossal Games introduces Fires in the East to the trilogy, adding new mechanics, new rewards, and new units with a Ancient Persian and Babylonian theme. The Kickstarter campaign also includes the first expansion for the Omen series, Tales of the Ancients is an expansion specifically designed for Fires in the East adding 12 feat cards and 24 reward cards. A Reign of War, Edge of the Aegean, and Fires in the East are all standalone games, but they can also be combined in numerous ways. Kolossal Games has updated the art design of both A Reign of War and Edge of the Aegean to ensure a consistent art design across the series.
