Even if you’re secretly missing the part of your brain that solves sliding tile puzzles like me, between the cutesy animal adventurers of Here to Slay and the ancient tile sliding puzzles of Shifting Stones, despite being completely unplanned we sort of have an adventuring theme going this week.
This isn’t to say we’ve forgotten the rest of the adventuring world. I mean, there’s always Gloomhaven and Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion, Descent: Journeys in the Dark, Mansions of Madness, Stuffed Fables and more if you want your big dungeon crawlers.
Leave no stone unturned! Nine mystical tiles lie before you in a grid of rocky ruins. Rearrange these intricately cut stones to match your Pattern cards and score points. The catch is that you must sacrifice a card every time you swap or flip a tile and these same cards are used to manipulate the stones or score points (but never both). Carve out the most points in Shifting Stones, and your victory will be set in stone!
Here to Slay is a competitive role-playing fantasy strategy card game that’s all about assembling a party of Heroes and slaying monsters (and sometimes sabotaging your friends too) from the creators of Unstable Unicorns.
In this game, you’ll assemble a full party of heroes to slay dangerous monsters while working to avoid the sabotage of your foes. The game also includes items you can equip to your heroes, 1V1 challenge cards, and roll modifiers to tip the odds in your favor.
Will you work to build the most robust party of highly-skilled heroes this world has ever seen, create a lean team of monster-killing machines, or set out to screw over your friends at every turn? No matter what you choose, there are enough strategies, characters, cards, and effects to make the game different every time you play it.
