I… I’m attacking the darkness!!
Sure, that might just be a cute line from that old Dead Alewives skit, but it’s also what you get to do in Myth: Dark Frontier, a new cooperative board game up on Kickstarter. The city of Farrenroc is under siege by the Darkness (umm… not Charlie Murphy… or that one band). You’ll have to gather together, the various legendary heroes in the world of Myth, if you want to make sure the city survives.
From the campaign:
Fight back the oppressive forces of Darkness in Myth: Dark Frontier, a fully cooperative board game for 2-4 players. Take on the role of an iconic Myth hero in a desperate fight to protect the city of Farrenroc from the legions of Darkness that seek to despoil its holy walls.
Players take on the role of iconic heroes from the world of Myth, aiding the besieged city of Farrenroc in its never-ending quest to push back the Darkness. Each hero has a small deck of five actions: Travel, Battle, Encounter, Fortify, and Quest. Three of the five are selected and placed in one of three time slots (morning, day, and night).
These selections are made for all heroes and the enemy at the same time, then shuffled. Each time phase is played out by drawing and executing the action, be it a hero or an enemy. Players will need to discuss their planned actions with each other and play them in the appropriate time slots. All the while, the enemy is moving to destroy Farrenroc by any means necessary.
