WizKids Announces Tower of London Board Game

What? You need a Beefeater? I'll eat all the beef you've got! *omnomnomnom* ... What do you mean, "it might be poisoned"!?!
WizKids has announced a new board game called Tower of London. Players are looking to control areas of this legendary building, moving their Beefeaters around to different rooms. They are also looking to capture ravens. The player with the Tower under their control after 3 rounds, or the first one to collect 7 ravens, wins.

From the announcement:

In Tower of London, on each turn, players play two cards: the first card determines which building their Beefeater (guard) goes into, and the second card has a special power that triggers from the perspective of the Beefeater just placed.

At the end of a round, certain areas of the tower are scored based on who controls the majority of buildings by having the most Beefeaters in each. The game is over at the end of three rounds or when a player collects 7 ravens, in which case the game ends immediately.

Expect the game on store shelves this April.
