PostPosted: Tue Jan 15, 2013 7:47 pm    Post subject: Legends of Andor... A storytelling adventure!



Legends of Andor is a cooperative adventure board game for two to four players in which a band of heroes must work together to defend a fantasy realm from invading hordes. To secure Andor's borders, the heroes will embark on dangerous quests over the course of five unique scenarios (as well as a final scenario created by the players themselves). But as the clever game system keeps monsters on the march toward the castle, the players must balance their priorities carefully.



At the heart of Legends of Andor is its unique narrative, the linked scenarios of which tell an overarching story as the players successfully complete objectives. For each scenario, or "Legend", a legend deck conveys the plot of an ever-unfolding tale...one in which the players are the protagonists.



A wooden marker moves along the board's legend track at key points during each scenario, triggering the draw of a new legend card, the introduction of new game-altering effects, and the advancement of the story's plot. In the end, the players must endeavor to guide the fate of And or through their heroic actions, bringing a happy ending to their epic fantasy tale.



The linked scenarios in Legends of Andor are designed to teach the fundamentals of the game as the players experience it, obviating the need for a lengthy rulebook. Indeed, armed with nothing but a four-page Quick-Start Rules guide, players can dive into the world of Andor within a few minutes of first opening the box. The introductory legend, entitled “The Heroes Arrive,” acquaints players with the key components, mechanics, and challenges found in the game, all while laying a narrative foundation one would expect in the prologue of an epic fantasy novel.



Most noteworthy is that this is accomplished as the story unfolds, all through the use of the legend deck. The game itself teaches each core mechanic only as needed, so new players learn while they play! Of course, more experienced players can skip directly to the legend entitled “Long Live the King.” In this tale, King Brandur of Andor is ill, and only the healing brew of an enigmatic witch can save him. Unfortunately, an arcane fog has descended upon the forest, and the heroes must scour the area if they hope to find her in time to save the life of their lord. Compounding the challenge, a horde of monsters is taking advantage of Brandur’s weakened state and has launched an assault on the castle. The heroes must find the witch and recover her brew, all while thwarting a siege by bloodthirsty foes!

Will their heroes roam the land completing quests in the name of glory, or devote themselves to the defense of the realm? Uncover epic tales of glory as you live the Legends of Andor!


Legends of Andor includes:
* 1 Game Board, 1 Quick-Start Rules Booklet, and 1 Reference Booklet
* 4 Double-Sided Hero Boards and 1 Merchant Inventory/Battle Sequence Board
* 138 Cards
* 179 Cardboard Tiles, Tokens, and Markers
* 14 Wooden Cubes and Disks, and 1 Cardboard Tower
* 41 Plastic Stands and 20 Six-Sided Dice
