My first glimpse inside the WizKids Game Crate for October
Everything that came in my WizKids Game Crate for October. This is a nice assortment especially if you have older kids that are into RPG games.
So what is all this stuff?
The first game in the box is a fast paced game that gives you all the fun aspects of dungeon raiding! This boxed strategy game is great for ages 14+ and can be played from two to five people. The best part is that games only take about three minutes each. The object is to stack dice and add time to the game through crazy and fun quests! I’m sure my older daughters will really enjoy this game.
Next up is Sovereign’s Chain -In gibraltar station, a fringe outpost in the void horizon, free-port merchants and mercenaries play sovereign’s chain, a card Game that matches strategy, skill, and a bit of Rogue luck for its player. This game is great for ages 14+ and can accomodate 2-4 players. Each game takes about 30 minutes to play.
The final game in our box for the month is Thrown… one guess as to what this tabletop strategy game is inspired by.
Taken from the WizKids description:
Many are familiar with the idea of a trick-taking game: cards are played, with suits mattering, and you are trying to get the highest value on the table. Sometimes there are trumps which override the suits.
In Thrown, the way to play into a trick is by using dice! The colors of the dice represent the suits. The lead player rolls 1-3 dice of a color (the suit) and the other players try to roll in-suit to get the highest value on the table. If you do not have the right suit, then you can roll for trump: rolling a natural 6 on one of your dice in an off-suit will beat the highest value in-suit.
Winning a trick gives you gold. The game ends when there are a number of rounds played equal to the number of players. The winner is the player with the most gold.
But wait, there are cards in the game too! These cards give special abilities which are paid for, or activated with, dice of particular colors. Some of the effects include: flipping your or your opponent’s dice to their opposite sides, removing dice, re-rolling dice, automatically winning with a particular roll, and more!
I think this looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun to play!
So in summary
Presentation: Everything arrived to me perfectly in my box from WizKids
Quality: I find the quality of the games to be right in line with the price of the box – which is fine by me
Curation: This month it’s clear the theme was RPG and the games were all really fun but would work best for families with older children.
