Now on Kickstarter: Guards of Atlantis
January 19, 2016 - 8:10am
The Guards of Atlantis, a new tabletop game based on Multiplayer Online Battle Arena games (MOBAs), is now on Kickstarter. In the game, players are divided into two teams trying to destroy the enemy base. Each player controls a single hero with cards that are used both for Action Points and Health Points. Additionally, each team has minions (not controlled by the players) helping out to attack the other team. The base game comes with six different heroes - Miss Swift the Sniper, Tigerclaw the Outlaw, Wasp the Envoy of the Queen, Brogan the Barbarian, Dodger the Aspiring Witch, and Arien the Spellsword. Each hero comes with five starting cards, three of which can be upgraded during the game when the hero gains a level. Those abilities each have two distinct branches, so there are many options for customizing your hero during gameplay. The combat is based entirely on the cards, and with simultaneous selection, the gameplay is extremely tactical. For more information, see the Kickstarter page here.
