Cut Gloomhaven setup time, a new game set in Sarah J. Maas’ Throne of Glass book series, and the next project from the creators of ROOT.
A re-theme of the two-player co-op game Ravens of Thri Sahashri, Embers of Memory is set in the Throne of Glass universe by fantasy author Sarah J. Maas.
Players work together to recreate Princess Aelin’s memories by building out a map of cards on the table, attempting to match quadrants and numbers. We’ve received a review copy of the game and will let you know more soon. It’s also available to pre-order right now.
Instead the game will be played directly in the scenario book, greatly cutting setup time and allowing the expansion to have custom art for each scenario, enhancing immersion and playability.
For those of you who missed last week’s coverage, Gloomhaven will be releasing a newbie-friendly, $40 expansion with all new scenarios and hero classes later next year.
The base box is now available for $99.
