Fantasy Flight Games has announced that they’ll be coming out with a new edition of the Cave Troll board game. You and your fellow adventurers (well, they might not exactly be your fellows. They want their gold, too) are headed into a newly-discovered dungeon to see what sorts of riches can be plundered. Of course, the monsters that inhabit the halls and rooms don’t exactly take kind to trespassers, and are going to be there to try and stop you. Players get to control both heroes and monsters in the game, adding a bit of an interesting twist on the usual.
From the announcement:
Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce a new edition of Cave Troll, a classic game of heroes, monsters, and racing for treasure!
An ancient dungeon has been discovered, filled with treasure for anyone to claim. Unfortunately, this information is no secret. Others have heard of the same dungeon, and even now, they race to seize the gold before you. Your time is limited: gather your forces and enter the dungeon!
Cave Troll invites you to command noble heroes and deadly monsters in a game of strategic positioning and adventure. In every game, you and your opponents enter a twisted dungeon in search of gold at any cost. Rather than controlling a single hero, however, you command both heroes and monsters. By strategically positioning your heroes throughout the dungeon, you can claim gold from certain rooms, but you must always be on your guard. Each player can use monsters to disrupt his opponents’ plans and destroy enemy heroes. In your hour of need, an unearthed artifact may tilt the odds in your favor, but at the end of the game, the player who has gathered the most gold from the dungeon is victorious.
