Legends Untold

The pledge button clicked and another potential new addition to the teetering stack of boxed games in the Battleshed threatening to collapse on the unwary desperately trying to catch escaping dice before they disappear forever into the under-table depths. This time it’s a cooperative adventure RPG/Card game called Legends Untold.

"In Legends Untold 1 to 4 players take on the role of unlikely heroes, the final hope of a conquered people. Starting with only your wits and a crude weapon you will explore the Weeping Caves trying to gain access to the great free city of Dun Mordhain."

Recommended by Fiona and Andy from my local club and produced by Inspiring Games, an independent design studio based in Edinburgh, Scotland. It was previewed at the UK games Expo in June this year. I think it’ll be a fine addition to my collection, especially with the solitaire and campaign options being a key factor for me when choosing games. The game can be played with up to 8 players if more than one pack is purchased, so also expandable for club play.

Definitely worth a look. Head over to the Kickstarter for the full blurb. (Ends 15th Dec.)
