EDGE OF DARKNESS
unnamed.png


We come now to the start of the story.

A city, Aegis, struggles to survive. The Blight draws near.

Four Guilds hold its fate in their hands. For Aegis to live, three must fall and one must rise.

From John D. Clair, designer of the ORIGINS Award Winning Mystic Vale comes a new look at the world first glimpsed in the contest between the Druids and the corruption of the Vale.

The most ambitious tabletop game Alderac Entertainment Group has ever published is now live on Kickstarter.

Featuring:
  • The double-sided evolution of the Card Crafting System
  • An innovative shared deckbuilding mechanic
  • Variable Location boards for incredible repeat play value
  • The Threat Tower, an imposing plastic randomizer and source of the Blight
  • Card-driven worker placement ensuring every choice has consequences
Edge of Darkness is a midweight Euro-style game for 2-4 Players (with solo play unlocked at the first Stretch Goal), that plays in about 90-120 minutes.

Will you provide a stout defense on the walls? Or will you fight corruption within the Capital Hall? Will you ensure the Forge will never falter? Or will you summon heroes and send them against the Blight or will you seek to increase your influence and expand your forces in the city?

There are many paths to victory but only one Guild will triumph.

Save the city. Save the world.

If you have never played smash up before Smash Up, designed by Paul Peterson, is the Shufflebuilding game from Alderac Entertainment Group. In Smash Up players draft two faction decks, such as pirates, ninja, robots, zombies, and more, and combine them into a force to be reckoned with!

When the game begins, players take turns drafting one of several faction decks.

Once each player has two decks, they shuffle them together, combining their distinct abilities into a unique 40-card deck.

A random selection of Base cards are dealt to the table, and players use their decks to attempt to have the most power on a base when it is scored.

VALLEY OF THE KINGS PREMIUM EDITION
LAUNCHES ON KICKSTARTER TUESDAY APRIL 2nd AT 9AM (PACIFIC)
unnamed.gif


AEG is excited to announce that our next Kickstarter project is for Valley of the Kings.

Tom Cleaver's game of tomb building and Egyptian history is one of our favorite products. Originally published as three stand-alone games of about 100 cards each, Premium Edition combines all three games into one upgraded and revised new release!


What is a "Premium Card"? For AEG, that means a super-sized (Tarot) card that gives the art and game text room to breathe, a card that looks amazing on the table, a card made with a linen finish, and printed on the highest quality card stock.

We have a lot of experience with Premium cards - we featured them in Love Letter Premium, Lovecraft Letter, and the cards in both Mystic Vale and Edge of Darkness are built to Tarot-size. We love the way they feel when you shuffle them, and hold them - especially when they're in AEG Premium Sleeves, and how they look on the table when you play!

Every spring, millions of monarch butterflies leave Mexico to spread out across eastern North America. Every fall, millions fly back to Mexico. However, no single butterfly ever makes the round trip.
Mariposas is a game of movement and set collection that lets players be part of this amazing journey.
Mariposas is played in three seasons. In general, your butterflies try to head north in spring, spread out in summer, and return south in fall. The end of each season brings a scoring round, and at the end of fall, the player with the most successful family of butterflies — i.e., the most victory points — wins the game.
Follow #aegmariposason twitter and instagram for more news about the game

Game Info
Players: 2 – 5
Ages: 14+
Setup Time: 5-10 minutes
Playing Time: 45 – 75 minutes

Calico is a beautiful strategy board game for 1-4 players that plays in 30-45 minutes.
In Calico, players compete to sew the coziest quilt as they collect and place patches of different colors and patterns. Players will choose a personal design to follow, while trying to create color and pattern combinations that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also able to attract the cuddliest cats!

Turns are simple. Select a single patch tile from your hand and sew it into your quilt, then draw another patch into your hand from the three available. If you are able to create a color group, you may sew a button onto your quilt. If you are able to create a pattern combination that is attractive to any of the cats, it will come over and curl up on your quilt! At the end of the game, you score points for buttons, cats, and how well you were able to complete your unique quilt pattern.

Game Info
  • 1-4 Players
  • Simple setup and rules
  • Recommended Age 8 – 15+ Years
  • Includes Family Mode – simpler gameplay for first-time gamers and children
  • Solo mode scenarios and achievements add new ways to play, adding to replayability

Smash Up is AEG’s award winning, best-selling, super fun flagship game.

Smash Up, designed by Paul Peterson, is the Shufflebuilding game from Alderac Entertainment Group. In Smash Up players draft two faction decks, such as pirates, ninja, robots, zombies, and more, and combine them into a force to be reckoned with!
When the game begins, players take turns drafting one of several faction decks.
Once each player has two decks, they shuffle them together, combining their distinct abilities into a unique 40-card deck.
A random selection of Base cards are dealt to the table, and players use their decks to attempt to have the most power on a base when it is scored.
It may sound simple, but how simple is it when the Zombie-Ninja deck Assassinates your minions then creates an Outbreak, loading the Base with minions from their discard pile?
Or when the Pirate-Dinosaurs Full Sail onto the base with the mighty King Rex, whose massive power dwarfs that of other minions?
Each combination gives a different experience, Pirate-Aliens play very different than Pirate-Zombies, and with 8 factions in the base set there are 64 combinations to try out and every expansion set increases the options exponentially!



Smash Up: Marvel is coming soon from AEG and The Op! And we have new previews coming out weekly! All of the factions have been previewed at this point on our social networks, and one of the most anticipated was the Spiderverse! Get ready for web-slinging action when you combine these friendly neighborhood wall-crawlers with your other Smash Up factions!

Warlord Returns for it’s 20th Anniversary!

1.png


The legendary collectible card game of d20 combat, Warlord had a long history with many players still active in tournaments and leagues to this day. Warlord is a long-time favorite of many at AEG, and we did not want to let the 20th Anniversary of this classic game pass without a tribute.

In the days of the CCG, Warlord was unique in its “Challenge System” which allowed players to take on rare and powerful enemies at special events. The most coveted of these were the Medusan Lords, completely unique cards that represented the creators’ own role-playing game characters. Defy the odds and defeat one and the player claimed it as their own.

In this special 20th Anniversary pack, we look back at the origins of the Medusan Lords, when they were simple Warlords. This will allow everyone to build all-new decks using these characters! And included are items related to each, a new challenge Overlord, and a new alternate-art of the always useful Brine Fiend!

As said, the only way to make sure you get a copy is to pre-order February 1 through February 5, 2021 at alderacstore.com.
  • Orders will be accepted through those dates.
  • Each account may order up to 10 copies.
  • After pre-orders end, the product will go to press and be shipped by this summer.

The peaceful city of Rowan is surrounded by dangerous monsters. It’s up to the citizens to fortify the city, train up warriors, clerics, knights, and mages, and defend Rowan in Meeples and Monsters!

Meeples and Monsters is a big, beautiful bag-building engine builder by designer Ole Steiness (Champions of Midgard and more). Depth, replayability, beautiful components, and a splash of meeple humor will have you coming back for “just one more play” game night after game night!

This deluxe Kickstarter includes a bunch of upgrades and extras, including the 4-towers expansion and everything you need to play the solo version designed by Mike Mullins (solo designer for Lagoon, Tussie Mussie, Castle Dice and more).

The next Thunderstone Quest expansion takes your adventure into the Deepwood Forest.
Nature’s Wrath pits you against Kar’nomal, a shaman that has become fed up with the impact of civilization upon the realm of nature. He and his followers seek to control the elemental forces of the world in an effort to let the wilderness in all its forms reclaim the entire world and all life in it. He will seek to strike at the Village, punishing all except those in step with the Elements.
Rotten Roots introduces Filleath, a brownie that has always felt he was destined for more, but it seems he’s always lived in the shadow of greater creatures, especially Ashbrow, the great tree guardian of Deepwood. A new pact with a being from the Abyssal lands will bring an end to all that. Now armed with dark powers, he will spread a blight that puts the entire forest in jeopardy.
It is never late to begin your quest for the Thunderstone shards. This is as good as time as ever to get the base box for one of the greatest deck building games and complement it with any of its expansions. See below what the Deepwood has in store for you.
