Legends of Adventure
|Suggested Age||9 and up|
Legends of Adventure is a cooperative fantasy board game that streamlines the role-playing experience for newcomers to the genre, people who have limited time for gaming, and those who just want to play a lighter style of game. Players attempt to cooperatively complete 10 adventures in order to become Legends. To do so, all the players must work together to defeat Monsters along the way. Each time you play is unique, and the game is enhanced by magnificent fantasy artwork.
To play Legends of Adventure, players become Heroes of different types and go forth to undertake up to 10 adventures. To complete each adventure, the Heroes must defeat a group of Monsters equal in number to the number of players. The assorted adventures and the Monsters provide circumstances and powers that modify game play. In order to defeat the Monsters and complete each adventure, the players must jointly outscore the Monsters’ combined level. This is done by rolling unique dice, featuring water, fire, and forest icons, for the levels of Heroes and Treasure Cards played, as well as playing Divine Intervention cards, adding an interesting spin that allows Heroes to request help from the gods. Each successful die roll adds to the overall score of the Heroes; once the Heroes have defeated the Monsters, they receive loot in the form of Treasure Cards that will help them in future adventures. The variety of cards provides different scenarios not only for all adventures but also for each game as a whole.
