WizKids Announces Endless Pass Card Game

WizKids seems to be in that pattern again of announcing several new games in rapid succession (nothing wrong with that, mind you). In this case, it’s Endless Pass: A Viking Saga. Players take on the role of mighty vikings, searching the Pass as they look to defeat the Endless, a never-ending (ooooh, that explains the name…) group of monsters. But, being vikings, they’re also looking for glory! As such, they’ll compete against one-another as well. Whose story will be told throughout all time? That’s for you to decide.

From the announcement:

WizKids is pleased to announce the card-based adventure game, Endless Pass. Designed by Nuria Casellas, two to six players take on the role of a Viking, either nameless or a Legendary Hero, and explore the Pass while not only fighting the never-ending hoard of Endless, but rival Vikings as well. The goal: Eternal Glory!

When a Viking chooses to Search the Pass, they draw cards from the Pass Deck. These can be useful items, or dangerous Endless. Using Action Cards, a Viking fights back, killing the beast and earning a Glory Point, Evade, or Block. The later 2 means that though the Viking is safe, the Endless continue on the path to the next player.

What does a Viking do when there are no Endless to fight? They attack another Viking, of course! Swing a sword or throw bombs at another in an attempt to steal Glory or Health. Be cautious, a good Viking won’t go down without a fight, ready to defend and retaliate at a moment’s notice.
