Solo Hero Series: Proving Grounds


 

 

 

 

 

Maia Strongheart stands alone against the world. A cabal of conspirators has framed her for the death of her own mother, the Sun Queen, and they intend to usurp the throne from her family. To prove her own innocence and reclaim her birthright, Maia must step into the Proving Grounds to complete a trial that will stretch her combat skills to the limit. Will the Wizened’s chosen daughter vanquish her foes in the arena? Or will she be overwhelmed by the conspirators and their evil aspirations?

Proving Grounds is a real-time solitaire dice game from the creator of FUSE and Flatline. It merges narrative and gameplay in a brand-new way. In this box, you will find a novella, Only the Strongest Has the Heart of a Wizened Queen, written by Monica Valentinelli. This sweeping story sets the stage for the events of the game. Read the story of Maia Strongheart as she fights to ascend to the Sun Throne. Then, recreate her extraordinary battle!

If you’ve never played a solo game before, this is a great place to start. There is a training game and six different gameplay modules. Once you’ve learned the basics, add a single module or mix and match to your tastes. If you’re feeling truly adventurous, put them all together for a true test of your gladiatorial combat skills!

Ravnica Inquisition


 

 

 

 

 

This 5-to-10 player game has players take on the roles of Agents of Bolas, who seek to bring their master to power, or Gatewatch Loyalists, who seek to protect Ravnica from his influence. Players will receive a role card indicating their loyalty, which is hidden, as well as a guild cards, which indicate the player’s color.

At the beginning of the game, players will close their eyes and the Agents of Bolas will be instructed to open their eyes and acknowledge each other. After they close their eyes again, all players will open their eyes and play begins. Each round, players will elect a Leader based on the color indicated on that round’s Leader card. The elected Leader then draws a Targeting card and performs their color’s ability, targeting a player of the color indicated by the drawn card.

Play continues until the last card has been drawn, in which case the Final Round begins. Players will decide who should be killed and the players who were elected Leader during the previous rounds will vote. The player with the most votes is killed. If at least two Agents of Bolas are dead, the Gatewatch Loyalists win! Otherwise, the Agents of Bolas win.

Game of Thrones: Oathbreaker


 

 

 

 

 

Who do you trust? If you sit on the Iron Throne, the wisest answer is “no one”.

Game of Thrones: Oathbreaker is a game of deception and social deduction. One player assumes the role of King (or Queen), while the others represent the great Lords and Ladies of the Houses of Westeros. Some are loyalists who want order in the realm, others are conspirators who seek to undermine the throne, and all of them have a secret agenda of their own. Who is truly loyal, and who is simply hungry for power, honor, and coin? It’s up to the King to figure it out before it’s too late.

In more detail, the game lasts seven rounds. In each round, players reveal a number of mission cards, each of which has an associated influence type: crowns, ravens, or swords. Each noble plays influence cards face down to one or more missions and places their House Sigil at the mission where they played the most cards. Then each mission is resolved by shuffling the influence cards there and tallying up successes and failures. If a mission succeeds, Order is generated; otherwise Chaos is generated. Nobles earn rewards (coin, honor, power) based on whether the mission with their House Sigil succeeded or failed.

The King can play decree cards during the game to grant favor to nobles who seem loyal, or cast suspicion on suspected conspirators. Decree cards award Order if the King was correct and Chaos if the King was wrong.

At the end of the game, if Order exceeds Chaos, the King wins and any loyalists who achieved their personal ambitions win. If Chaos has the edge, then any conspirators who achieved their personal ambitions win.
