Board Game Battle Arena set in a Parallel Fantasy Open World of the Silk Road Era ready for 1-4 players
Welcome Dark World Stone Keeper.
We are so excited to introduce our first board game developed by DOPANDA GE.
World Adventure: Ancient Runes is a 1-4 player turn-based strategic fantasy board game. In this game, you’ll compete against other Dark World Stone Keepers while collecting as many as Ancient Runes.
First player who has succeeded acquiring number of Ancient Runes will be the winner. Along the way, you must withstand monsters and other heroes which appeal to your attack, heal, buff, and de-buff skills.
In this episode, you will be brought into The Silk Road, which has some similarities with our current world besides its own supranatural and fantasy approach. This world bustles around Europe and Asia which were famous with valuable goods, such as silk, medicines, spices, metals, and foods.
Our game is inspired by other fantastic board game such as Merchant & Marauders, Scythe, and Zombicide. The storyline is influenced by novels and console games such as Sword Art Online, Log Horizon, Grimgar, Suikoden, Vandal Hearts, and Final Fantasy.
World Adventure: Ancient Runes gameplay is adapted from MMORPG which enables battle and co-op among players.
Basically, each player will have their turns taken to explore The Silk Road and its surroundings. Firstly, you are required to select different heroes, such as rich and charismatic Merchant, devious and agile Bandit, or strong and fearless Monster Hunter. Then you must decide which caravan type and set power ability to excel the character’s strength and ease their way to win the game.
Along the quest, you’ll be able to collect supplies, do trading, recruit soldiers, gather support, upgrade caravan, and build their own kingdom. Progressively, you’ll require to battle the monsters, assault bandits, and conquer Legendary Monsters. Therefore, active players will have advantage to gain the Ancient Runes and progressively win the game.
