IDW Games has announced that they’re teaming up with Kevin Wilson to bring you Awesome Kingdom, IDW’s first fantasy board game. The game is a light-hearted, card-driven romp through a classic fantasy dungeon. Players take on adventurers going through a dungeon in search of the best trophies that they can haul back to the surface. Avoid the other players and traps, and beat the nastiest beasties in order to come out ahead. Expect the game to show up later this summer.

AWESOME KINGDOM: THE TOWER OF HATESKULL TO RELEASE THIS SUMMER!
Ready your steed, sharpen your blade, and crank the tunes to eleven, as you prepare to enter IDW Games’ first entry into fantasy gaming. Awesome Kingdom: Tower of Hateskull, from legendary game designer Kevin Wilson (Descent, Arkham Horror, X-Files) is an over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek, sword-in-hand dungeon-crawling card game due out later this summer.
“Awesome Kingdom is inspired by my youngest experiences with roleplaying games. It’s the sort of thing I dreamed up while eating sugar-frosted cereal and watching Saturday-morning cartoons in the ’80s.” says game designer Kevin Wilson. “I tried to channel that sense of unrestrained fun, and Tower of Hateskull is the result.”
Awesome Kingdom is a lightweight, fast and funny dungeon-crawling card game for two to four players in which they compete to be the most awesome hero after three days of adventuring. Players enter the dungeon as one of eight epic characters, such as the Ragebarian, Prestidigimancer, or Paladude, each bestowed with an appropriately amazing ability. Over the course of play, players have to outmaneuver each other while battling ferocious beasts and avoiding enticing traps, all in the hope of emerging from the tower with the biggest haul and most spectacular trophies.
Look for Awesome Kingdom: Tower of Hateskull to hit stores in July 2015.
