Renegade Game Studios Previews Dokmus

For many of us, when we get a new game, we’ll play it once or twice and go, “You know, this is a great game, but I could see how it could be helped with an expansion.” It’s just sort of second nature. I know I’ve done it before. Be like, “This game’s great, but if it had (item) and (item), I think it’d be fantastic.” But you often never know when an expansion for a game will be coming out (if ever). Well, Renegade Game Studios is making us rest easy with Dokmus. Not only is it coming out later this month, but the expansion, Return to Erefel, is coming with it. Check ’em both out.

From the post:

Lead your tribe to glory on the island of Dokmus and become a legend! The island is represented by eight double-sided map pieces. During set-up, you randomize which side of each map piece is up and place them in a 3×3 grid so that the middle place is left empty.

The island is guarded by five Guardians, which are represented by Guardian cards. On each turn, players draft the Guardian cards so that each player gets the help of one Guardian. The Guardian cards decide turn order and they also give you special powers. With them, you can move and rotate, move your tokens, or gain first player marker for next turn.
