Fantasy Flight Nabs Legends of the Five Rings from AEG

Fantasy Flight GamesWe didn’t see this one comic. Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG) and Fantasy Flight Games have come to a deal where Fantasy Flight will purchase Legend of the Five Rings from AEG.

L5R has been a popular game for two decades, and their events at Gen Con are always packed, so the deal is a bit of a shocker to me. Fantasy Flight has said it expects its first product for the relaunch will be for Gen Con 2017, and the game will be a Living Card Game (LCG) instead of a collectible card game (CCG).

AEG has cited their focus on other things beyond the CCG as a reason for the deal. Fantasy Flight does have a history with the property, and I’d expect to see it in more than just an LCG.

The current incarnation of the Legend of the Five Rings CCG will be complete with the release of the Evil Portents expansion from AEG. After that release, the game will go on hiatus until FFG relaunches it.

For players unfamiliar with the LCG model, a Living Card Game offers regular, non-randomized releases that include full playsets of every card. In its new form, Legend of the Five Rings will use this release format, rather than “blind” boosters that contain randomly assigned rare, uncommon, and common cards. Instead of spending their time chasing hard-to-find cards, the LCG distribution model allows players to focus on building decks by buying a single expansion that includes a full playset of every card in that expansion.

This will also see significant design changes in the newest version, including a new mechanical design.

Rumpelstiltskin & Doomtown: No Turning Back Now Available from AEG

Alderac Entertainment has announced that you can now purchase Rumplestiltskin and Saddlebag 5: No Turning Back:

Rumpelstiltskin_box-1024x748Rumpelstiltskin

If I want to win our game, I first must guess your true name!

In Rumpelstiltskin, you and a friend take the roles of fey folk who have decided to engage in a name guessing contest. You must use your magical mischief to learn your opponent’s secret name while protecting your own!

Players take turns going back and forth. To take a turn, you play one card from your hand, perform its actions, and then put it in your discard pile. Then the next player takes their turn. Some cards let you try to win the game by guessing your opponent’s secret name. At that point you guess what your opponent’s secret name is (the card on the bottom of their deck). Your opponent may use a reaction, but then must tell you if you guessed right or wrong. If you guessed correctly, you win! If the card you guessed is not on the bottom of your opponent’s deck, play continues.

There is no turning back!

The verdict is in, and it’s sure to cause trouble! Will there be a rescue attempt? Will it be in time? Meanwhile, Lillian Morgan has a surprise for Max Baine that he isn’t likely to forget.

Doomtown: Reloaded is a fast paced expandable card game set in the Deadlands universe of gun slingin’, spell slingin’ and mud-slingin’!

No Turning Back is Doomtown: Reloaded’s fifth Saddlebag Expansion. Featuring a complete playset of cards, No Turning Back expands your options for takin’ over Gomorra, no matter your play style.

This product is an expansion, the base game is required to play.
