From the press release:
CORBIN, KY, April 24, 2012—An all-star lineup of gaming aces will soon unleash an exhilarating board game of astronomical entertainment. Toy Vault, Inc., legendary game designer Richard Borg (Memoir ’44, Battle Cry), and superstar artist Chris Quilliams (2011 Golden Geek award winner for “Best Board Game Artwork/Presentation”) are ready to take you on a thrill-a-minute conquest through the perilous depths of the cosmos in ABADDON!
In the remote future, mankind has taken a multi-galactic leap through space. Life as we know it struggles to endure in the region known as the ABADDON. Once the home of a mysterious, non-human civilization, the ABADDON is now a post-apocalyptic wasteland bearing one immeasurably-prized resource: Feronium power crystals. The near-infinite energy contained within the crystals is greatly coveted and viciously warred over by two groups of humans: the Satellite City-States and the Commonwealth Alliance. Using Links—gigantic bio-mech suits made (via alien technology) from modified military vehicles—the rivaling factions fight a bitter battle for territorial control of the ABADDON.
You can join the adventure with ABADDON upon its official release on April 30th! ABADDON comes in a 12.5” by 12.5” by 4” box that holds over 5 lbs. of mechanical warfare, including a massive 28” x 19” battlefield game board with 18 free-standing landscape terrain features, 32 highly-detailed mech figurines (of 4 different styles), over 100 game-altering Weapon System and Wild Fire cards, dozens of tokens, battle dice, and a Battle Manual, all for the recommended sales price of $79.99.
With a complexity level comparable to “Risk” and “Memoir ’44”, ABADDON will keep you engaged through over 15 mission scenarios (each lasting, on average, 30 to 90 minutes). PLUS, additional missions can be downloaded for free from our website: ToyVault.com!
ABADDON will be featured at this year’s Origins (May 30th through June 3rd) and Gen Con (August 16th through 19th). But you don’t have to wait! You can pick up your copy of ABADDON upon its release on April 30th! Prepare to choose your allegiance and lead your army in non-stop intrigue as you maneuver through unforgiving terrains, strategize to overcome curious technical glitches, and battle your foes in never-ending action and adventure in ABADDON!
