In Altar Quest, you won't have to assemble an unwieldy map in order to set up the game. You also won't have to stop playing every time you open a door to sort through countless map tiles to find the one needed to carry on with your adventure. Every quest that you undertake takes place on the same large, main game board depicting various dungeon rooms just waiting to be populated. This makes setup a breeze and ensures there is never a lull in the action!
While the main board (illustrated by Henning Ludvigsen) is used in every quest, no two games of Altar Quest are ever the same! Quest layouts always change thanks to the modular nature of the quest decks and feature cards, as well as all of the other decks used to customize your gameplay experience. Each time players discover a room, they will draw a feature card and place the corresponding miniature in the revealed room; bookcases full of forbidden knowledge, weapon racks filled with deadly blades, or even coveted altars may await you in a dungeon! Then, players will draw a quest card to see what else awaits in the chamber. Finally, players will draw threat cards to populate the room with deadly enemies, traps, or events. In other words, players are free to explore a dungeon as they see fit by making their own path on the board, but they will never know what lurks in its shadows or what lies beyond its doors!
Of course, all sorts of encounters can occur outside the dungeons of Aridika as well ...
Designed by Adam and Brady Sadler, Altar Quest draws upon the success of their Modular Deck System (introduced in Street Masters and Brook City) and is based in their all-original setting inspired by high fantasy and Gothic horror.
Featuring standalone quests, campaign play, and highly modular gameplay, #AltarQuest puts players in the roles of powerful heroes seeking to drive the forces of darkness away from the "altars" that corrupt the world.
Stay tuned as we near the reveal of the #Kickstartercampaign date!
