Rise of Tribes

Project image

In Rise of Tribes you are pre-historic people looking to grow in number, gather resources, and lead your tribe to victory. Build villages, discover advancements, and control territories to win!

Using a unique dice-pushing mechanic to activate 2 actions per turn, you will choose to grow, move, gather or lead. Explore a modular hex world, deciding whether to advance your fledging civilization with new developments, or achieve greatness with feats on the board.

Spread across the world, taking advantage of mild winters and discovery of new tribes, or plant your roots and establish powerful villages. Share the land with the other players peacefully, or push them out of your territory. There are many paths to victory in Rise of Tribes!

Rise of Tribes is the latest offering from Breaking Games and is funding on Kickstarter now. You can secure your copy for a pledge of just $39.

Archmage Origins

Project image

Archmage Origins is a 2-4 player card game from SolarFlare games where you use your mystical energy to gain control of a force of monsters, crush your rivals and win the day.

Players take turns manipulating the field of monsters and focusing their mystical power to “enlist” monsters to form the strongest force possible. The goal is to control the strongest force of monsters from the Realm, which is made up of cards indicating the monster that occupies that space and its power level.

Players take turns peeking at the cards to determine where the most powerful monsters are hiding, deviously moving the monsters around, and strategically placing their Mage Cards around the borders of the Realm. Once all the Mage Cards are in place, players compare the power value of the magical energies that intersects at each monster. The player with the higher total mystical power value gains control of that monster (usually). The player who collects the most powerful force of monsters wins.

Archmage Origins takes 10-20 minutes to play. You can get a copy on Kickstarter now for just $9.00 including US shipping!

“New designers should be open to other ideas that weren’t part of the initial vision of the game and be open to outside ideas from developers, friends, and playtesters. You never know when an inspiration will come that will make a good game into a great game.” – Dale Yu
