New Game Spotlight: Thunderstone!

Currently ranking #3 on The Hotness scale at Boardgamegeek.com, Thunderstone is the newest fantasy boardgame to utilize deck building elements borrowed from card games to create a new and unique adventure experience every time you play.

For ages the vile Doom Knights have sought to gather the mythical Thunderstones to fulfill an ancient prophecy predicting their domination over the land. Now the first Thunderstone has been discovered in the Dungeons of Grimhold and the Doom Knights have sent their minions to claim the relic. The Villagers of Barrowsdale send out the call for brave souls to face the dungeon and keep the Thunderstone out of the hands of the Doom Knights...

Thunderstone comes to us from the brainboxes at the Alderac Entertainment Group, the same folks behind some of the gaming industry's all-time best-selling CCG franchises like Legend of the Five Rings and (my personal favourite, as regular readers of this blog probably already know) the Warlord CCG. Featuring beautiful art from Jason Engle, one of the top illustrators of modern fantasy gaming, Thunderstone is 2010's first must-have fantasy game!
