Collect together your friends, formulate a strategy, and head out onto the field of battle. Champions of Nexum emulates popular MOBA-style video games on your tabletop. Fight through waves of enemies, looking to breach your opponent's defenses and take out their defensive towers and finally their base itself. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Champions of Nexum is a MOBA-inspired game that pits two sides against each other in epic combat. Able to accommodate both player vs. player and team vs. team (up to eight players), an average game lasts between 60 and 90 minutes.
Players collaborate with their teammates in an effort to reach and destroy their opponent’s castle. Over the course of a game, their Heroes will engage in many battles and complete numerous quests. The Victory Points gained from these will enable them to destroy the Guard Towers protecting the opposing Castle and ultimately assault it directly.
Throughout the game you’ll traverse the lanes and combat increasingly dangerous monsters such as the Behemoth and possibly, if we hit the stretch goal, the deadly Crystal Dragon.
Champions of Nexum uses a variety of cards in gameplay. Spells, artifacts, and location-specific events are all beautifully illustrated and help add to the replayability of the game. High-quality translucent, acrylic tokens make up the crystals which are the main form of currency.
The campaign is more than 2x funded with still 13 days left to go.
