Spire’s End, an adventure card game for 1 or 2 players now on Kickstarter

October 27, 2019 - 11:56am

Now on Kickstarter is Spire’s End, a card driven adventure game for 1 or 2 players. The adventure in Spire’s End is the search for your uncle, you last living relative, who has disappeared into a mysterious spire that has erupted from the ground in the middle of town suddenly.  The deck is divided into six chapters with cards in numbered order to guide you through the adventure.  As each card is turned, more of the story is told, choices are to be made, and challenges to defeat.  Helping you along the way are six allies, each with their special abilities. Hit points are a valuable commodity.  Not only do they determine the health of your allies, they are also a resource that must be spent to activate powers. The more powerful the power, the more vulnerable an ally becomes.  Enemy actions are determined by a random deck of action cards.  Cube counters keep track of hit points, armor points, and other effects, so there is no pencil and paper record keeping. The adventure cards are HUGE (custom 6.5 x 3.5 inch cards) and carry striking black/white/red artwork from Benjamin Wiesemann.  Spire’s End contains 105 story cards, 22 action cards, 11 instruction cards, 6 ally cards, 115 cube trackers and 3 8-sided dice.  Stretch goals will add more to the contents.  To learn more, check out the Kickstart campaign, which runs until November 16 and has an expected delivery date of July 2020.
