Secrets of the Lost Tomb

Secrets of the Lost Tomb is a cooperative game of thrilling action-adventure and discovery. Players assume the roles of stalwart expedition members working together to investigate ancient mysteries, while surviving dangers and shielding humanity from the supernatural powers of The Tomb—an ancient vault filled with primeval powers perpetually struggling to be set free upon the world. Powers that mankind should never behold…

The Details:

Each of the game’s Scenario-Scripts has its own unique theme, flavor, and powerful boss monster bringing you into the rich and detailed world of The Tomb. Prepare to prevent the second coming of the Immortal Rhaz Azul, reject the Pharaoh with the Blue Eyes that’s not of this world… or battle against the Elder Forces of Hera’Thulhu sealing the magical portal preventing Cthulhu from enslaving mankind! Each script offers new challenges and rewards. There are many stories that await the players’ fateful choices leading them to thrilling adventures and cliffhangers!

Strategizing with allies against the challenging objective cards is vital to save the world from these untold adventures and misadventures that you will explore. During the Adventurer’s Phase, players take actions to progress through the Script, face Combat with monsters, complete Side-Quests and Personal Missions, revealing more details about the characters, all the while overcoming the hair-raising Trap Rooms and sensational Story Cards.

As you explore new rooms your world will fill with untold delights, with each step a new world and new civilization of fame or of infamy is revealed… From the Crypts of the Mayan Empire, to the Pyramids of Egypt, through the Temples of the Orient, to the Ruins of Ancient Greece… the world is yours for the taking and its secrets are yours for the knowing…

Dangers are everywhere as you encounter these breathtaking wonders… but so are the rewards. Lethal Weapons, Priceless Relics, and Enchanted Artifacts will help you survive each frantic step. You may face a gruesome monstrosity that will push you to the brink of death, however upon defeating that monster, you will feel re-invigorated to reach out for that Artifact of Immense power and press on facing all that The Tomb can throw at you. Tomb Cards send orders to lurking monsters to move and attack, spawn anew, apply mystical effects, and progress the Three-Tailed Comet … foretold by the ancients… whose end shall awaken and unleash the primordial evil… and if you’re not ready to face it… you and your team will be Devoured as it ventures outward to decimate the world.

Fairytale Games

The Dark Queen (otherwise known as the Evil Queen), the Queen of Hearts, and the Snow Queen – three of the most powerful queens of all realms join forces with the common goal of wiping out the population completely in order to start anew and create a utopia with no poverty, crime, or sickness, all designed with their vision and unquestionable control.

To prevent history from repeating itself, they agree to select a champion to lead the new civilization and firmly guide the people based on knowledge from the past world. This champion must have a strong will, strength, magic, intelligence, persuasive abilities and is proven to be a survivor. Thus the Queens banished all Heroes and Villains into a fierce competition to see who will survive the Fairytale Games. There will be only one.

Fairytale Games: The Battle Royale is a 1-10 player dice-based board game that uses cards as the board (for land exploration). Movement is with a 6-sided die. When you begin the game, you and other players start at the same location and begin revealing locations/terrain as you roll your die. Some locations offer opportunities to start quests to gain survival items or allow you to explore more lands and gain better abilities. All the while Events are happening that might help or hinder you greatly. There are 30+ character cards that you can play as or fight against in this game. Other cards include Action Cards, Event Cards, Location Cards, Quest Cards and Item Cards. A normal game duration is about 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the number of players.

The goal of the game is to kill off at least ten fairytale characters in the game in addition to your opponent before they can do the same to you. If playing a one-player game, you must kill twenty characters. The other way you can win is if you complete certain Quest challenges as a team to escape the realm or to take the entire place down with you by finding the slim opportunities through certain card scenarios to defeat the three Queens.

Although Action Cards allow you to strategically attack, defend, hinder, or help another player, your character cards themselves have their own special abilities that can be used during certain situations through dice rolling or if they are activated by Quests, Events or other Action Cards.

Elder Signs: Grave Consequences Expansion

 

Jenny rounded the corner and entered the Egyptian exhibit. First, she caught sight of the mummies on display and the ankh symbols in their glass cases. Then she saw the nimbus of light glinting off the golden pharaoh’s mask. It was as if a dagger had cut through her mind. Something about that golden mask struck her. Suddenly, she was back in front of the dreadful yellow sign and that gibbous, jaundiced creature. She felt her stomach sink. She couldn’t see a clear danger, but she knew—somehow, to the core of her being—she was surrounded by the most terrifying of evils. Her mind reeled. Her heart raced. She couldn’t breathe…

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce that Grave Consequences, a new expansion for Elder Sign, is now available. Pick up your copy at The Wandering Dragon now!

Designed by Richard Launius, the creator of Arkham Horror, Grave Consequences introduces fifty new cards that increase the challenge and drama of your Elder Sign adventures. More than that, though, they immerse you more deeply into the world and allow you to connect more fully with the role of the investigator you’re playing.

Phobias, Epitaphs, and Epic Battles

The cards from Grave Consequences are divided into three modular decks: Phobia, Epic Battle, and Epitaph. These decks and their cards can be used together or separately, and they’re all fully compatible with the core game, as well as all of its expansions.

Phobia cards give new meaning to the sanity-draining challenges of Elder Sign, eating away at your mental health every time their triggers are met. To the external challenges presented by monsters, cultists, and otherworldly terrors, Phobias add a compelling, new internal dimension.

Epitaph cards ensure that your fallen investigator’s contributions will be remembered—whether for good or for ill. Marked by the tombstone on their backs, these cards introduce random effects whenever an investigator is devoured. Your Epitaph may heal the investigators’ sanity and stamina, or it may lead monsters onto their trail.

Epic Battle cards greatly amplify the difficulty and danger of your battles with any of the game’s Ancient Ones. Each round, they exert the Ancient One’s chaotic influence over the battle, warping your reality and altering the rules, changing the order in which you attack, and adding new measures of surprise and horror.

Whether you incorporate one, two, or all three of these modular decks into your games, you’ll find the psychological and supernatural aspects of Arkham and Elder Sign brought to life more fully than ever before. You’ll feel more of your investigator’s angst and anxiety. You’ll travel through a world forever changed by the lives of those who perish. And you’ll experience the true, awesome power of the elder gods.
