Arcadia Quest: Riders sold out within hours on Kickstarter

May 22, 2018 - 11:54pm

CMON allowed the public to try out Arcadia Quest: Riders at the CMON convention recently and there's been a lot of positive buzz about the game since then. Today the game was launched on Kickstarter, and the overall project will run for 5 days until Friday, May 25th, 2018. The 1st printing, made available when the project launched, was a limited supply and sold out within hours. Not to worry though! If you've missed out on the 1st printing, which is expected to deliver in July 2018, they've already added another pledge for the 2nd printing which is expected to deliver in November 2018. Arcadia Quest: Riders is a campaign expansion for Arcadia Quest (or Arcadia Quest: Inferno) which adds Mounts to aid the Heroes in their quest. Players must defend the city of Arcadia against Malkhor, the Great Hunter, and his vicious Jacklols. The Mounts can carry Heroes across the map, pushing back their foes, and use their unique abilities to help their riders. The base pledge of $65 include:
  • 8 Mounts (2 exclusive to Kickstarter)
  • 2 Heroes
  • 7 Enemies (Malkhor & 6 Jacklols)
  • 3 double sided game tiles
  • 44 upgrade cards
  • 15 Quest cards
  • 8 Monster cards
  • 4 Mount dashboards
  • Campaign book
  • Campaign sheet pad
  • 14 custom, Frost dice (exclusive to Kickstarter)

"Legend holds that Malkhor fell to earth on a chariot of blazing fire. The Eternal Hunter has stalked large prey in the Wilds since time immemorial, and now that the Mounts have found refuge in the city of Arcadia, he's upped his game and encroaches the area. Whether he’s truly a fallen god or merely some visitor from a very distant land, Malkhor’s intentions are clear: Stalk. Hunt. Kill. The unnerving and insane laughter heralds the approach of the Jacklols and drive many Arcadians mad. These cunning monsters serve Malkhor with spears and jokes alike!" [source]

The new Mounts, Toshi, Luda, Beka, Hornsteady, Bawkbawk, and Tianlong, are joined by 2 Kickstarter exclusive mounts, Stonebeak, and Phantom. The Wildling Twins, Colette & Gaston, join the existing roster of Heroes. If you'd like to learn more of the lore of this expansion and how it fits into the Arcadia Quest universe they've added an update to the project with more information.
