Ra is an auction and set-collection game with an Ancient Egyptian theme. Each turn players are able to purchase lots of tiles with their bidding tiles (suns). Players play their suns in one go, which may set up a situation with a single uncontested player bidding on tiles before the end of the round occurs.
Tension builds because the round may end before all players have had a chance to win their three lots for the epoch. The various tiles either give immediate points, prevent negative points for not having certain types at the end of the round (epoch), or give points after the final round. The game lasts for three "epochs" (rounds). The game offers a short learning curve, and experienced players find it both fast-moving and a quick play.
In Centurion, players start the game by placing their Centurion in one of the two middle squares on their side of the game-board. Two Legionnaires are then placed next to the Centurion. Each turn a player may choose to randomly draw a new tile from the bag or move a tile already in play.
Each side of a tile represents a different posture, often considered defensive or offensive, and indicates exactly what the piece can do within the turn. At the end of a move (or use of a special ability) the tile is flipped to its other side, displaying a new offensive or defensive profile.
With thirteen different double-sided Soldier tiles and nineteen total pieces for each player, and the choice to play asymmetrically with the sets from The Duke, Jarl, or Centurion, the variety of play is limitless!
The second print run for one of 2022's board game juggernauts is here!
In Flamecraft, 1-5 players take on the role of Flamekeepers, gathering items, placing dragons and casting enchantments to enhance the shops of the town. Visit a shop to gain items and a favor from one of the dragons there. Gathered items can be used to enchant a shop, gaining reputation and the favors of all the dragons in the shop. If you are fortunate enough to attract fancy dragons then you will have opportunities to secure even more reputation.
