WizKids Announces Nemo Rising: Robur the Conqueror Board Game

There's a new book out about the new adventures of Captain Nemo and his crew of the Nautilus. It's called Nemo Rising, and you can pick that up now. Soon, you'll also be able to dive deep into the book and tell your own stories in the world with Nemo Rising: Robur the Conqueror, a new board game coming from WizKids.

From the website:

The game allows 1 – 4 players to assume the roles of the protagonists of the series, Captain Nemo, Sara Duncan, Adam Fulmer,or Ulysses S. Grant, as they explore new worlds, overcome dangerous obstacles, and complete challenging missions.

As you and your fellow players work together, you can choose to explore one of two scenarios. The first scenario is the Undersea Grotto, where you must venture outside the Nautilus to gather supplies while avoiding sea hydras, deep sea scavengers, and the mechanical Kraken. The second scenario is the majestic City in the Sky, where you must thwart Robur the Conqueror and his army of foot soldiers, war dogs, and steam-powered creations. Special action cards and customized dice allow you to attempt dangerous tasks and overcome powerful enemies in order to save the world.  

Will Robur be defeated, or will he conquer the earth? It’s up to you.

The adventure novel was published by Tor Books in Christmas 2017 to an excited sci-fi and gaming community that embraced its action-adventure approach. Nemo Rising is available in hardback and audio book, and Tor will be releasing a paperback version later this year (2019).
