Tyrants of the Underdark – New AD&D Board Game
Gale Force Nine Announces a New Board Game from the Creators of Lords of Waterdeep
From the same game design team that brought you Lords of Waterdeep, Tyrants of the Underdark pits 2 to 4 players against each other to take over territory in the tumultuous Underdark, mashing up deck-building mechanics with board control. Look for Tyrants of the Underdark to be available in Spring 2016. Designed by Peter Lee and Rodney Thompson, Tyrants of the Underdark is a competitive board game in which you play as a drow house recruiting monsters, cultists and demons to aid you in controlling locations such as Menzoberranzan and Blingdenstone. Using power and influence as resources, Tyrants of the Underdark features multiple strategies you can use in crafting your deck of minions. Be the spymaster infiltrating your enemy’s strongholds or the deadly war-leader concentrating on assassinating enemy troops. No matter how you decide to play, whoever controls most of the Underdark at the end of the game wins, unless there’s some hidden strategy in play.
Gale Force Nine is currently one of the top game designers with Firefly: The Game, Spartacus: A game of Blood & Treachery, Sons of Anarchy: Men of Mayhem, WWE Superstar Showdown and for 2016 Doctor Who and Star Trek in the works. These guys are working hard, although there games do not always come out on time and will probably not have enough on release date, we suggest you pre-order that way you can be sure to have your copy on time.
