Blacklist Games has a new deck-building game coming to Kickstarter next month. It's called Dire Alliance: Horror and it gives you two ways to play. Either go head-to-head against your opponent, or put your differences aside and team up to take on the game itself. Along with the card game, Blacklist will also have a special line of minis that go along with it.
From the announcement:
Blacklist Games is thrilled to announce Dire Alliance: Horror, a game of tactical deckbuilding for 1–4 players. Designed by Trevor Benjamin & David Thompson (Undaunted: Normandy, Undaunted: North Africa) and Adam & Brady Sadler (Street Masters, Heroes of Terrinoth), Dire Alliance: Horror is set in a world of classical horror and is the first title in the Dire Alliance series of cross-compatible games.
There are two ways to play Dire Alliance—Battle Mode lets 2 players go head-to-head in an attempt to best the other’s chosen faction and leader with their own chosen combination of faction and leader, while Raid Mode allows 1 to 4 players to work together to take down an A.I. controlled enemy and its minions before they achieve their nefarious goals. In both game modes, players use a hand of cards to make their fighters move, battle, gain new cards, and perform special abilities. Players can only win by accomplishing the goal as described on the chosen scenario sheet!
Featuring fast, deck-driven gameplay, two ways to play, and the ability to mix and match different fighters and factions from across the product line, Dire Alliance lets players create their own stories of conflict and fragile unions across multiple genres!
Dire Alliance: Horror launches its Kickstarter campaign on October 27, 2020, at 12:00pm EDT and will offer exclusive price points and stretch goals for backers and retailers worldwide, as well as an optional set of compatible miniatures in the form of Blacklist Miniatures: Horror Series 1, the next in Blacklist Miniatures’ line of popular miniatures sets.
