Dungeons & Dragons Rock Paper Wizard Expansion: Fistful of Monsters
June 24, 2018 - 9:51am
Wizkids has announced plans to release Fistful of Monsters, an expansion to their 2016 Dungeons & Dragons Game Rock, Paper, Wizard. Like the original game, the expansion allow 3-6 players to spend around 30 minutes to try and grab the most gold possible from a dragon's hoard. The expansions is currently scheduled for an October 2018 release.
You have once again bested a dragon in its own lair and now comes time for your party to split the foul beast's hoard accordingly... Can you deal with these Wandering Monsters and still come away with the most gold? Maybe that stash of magic items you left by the cave entrance will prove helpful…Like the original game, the expansion is designed by Josh Cappel, Jay Cormier, and Sen-Foong Lim with artwork by Josh Cappel.
In this new expansion for Rock Paper Wizard, dastardly wandering monsters add a new threat. Each new wandering monster has a unique ability capable of forcing a wizard to move around the board, lose gold, end up injured. New magical items, used in combination with spells, might help players gain even more loot however. The new box included with Fistful of Monsters features a deeper box so both the expansion and the original game can all be stored in a single box. In the base game, Dungeons & Dragons: Rock Paper Wizard, a dragon has been slain, leaving behind a pile of treasure players will fight over.
A shared spell book will be placed on the table, with hand gestures representing various possible spells. Players will will choose spells simultaneously, moving a player closer or further away from the loot or affecting the game state in other ways. Players will need to carefully manage the chaos in an attempt to be the first to grab 25 pieces from the dragon's hoard and win the game.
