Product Description

The King of Astoria has fallen to a sudden illness. Seeing in this an opportunity to seize power, his ancient enemies are besieging the city. Six foreign mages have been hired to fight and repel them. They have Power and Knowledge, but they also must act quickly, for the King is dying, and every night brings him closer to his death. Waves after waves of invaders assault the city walls, while the Mages try to find a cure. The fate of the Kingdom will depend on their success.

There are two rulesets, for there are two games: the Alchemy version and the Epic version.

The Alchemy version is played in teams; it is a game of combination placement team strategy and competition to a very challenging level. Players are divided in two teams, each trying to compete for the best cure. Players have limited resources, and the game will end as soon as one is depleted.

The Epic version, on the other hand, has six different endings. It includes more diplomacy and roleplaying features. Players are powerful mages trying to defend the city of Astoria from many invaders. But they also must watch each other, for traitors are among them.

Tip: Remember how the components were packed in the box when you remove them. Otherwise it may be difficult to repack and shut the box.
