The latest board game from Stonemaier Games will be hitting stores this August. In Pendulum, each player will compete to be named the Timeless King’s successor by acquiring the most power, prestige, popularity, and legendary achievement. Time itself is even a resource in this game. Pendulum is for one to five players, ages 12+, and plays in around 60-90 minutes. No MSRP is available just yet but expect the game to arrive in August.
From Stonemaier Games:
In Pendulum, each player is a powerful, unique noble vying to succeed the Timeless King as the true ruler of Dünya. Players command their workers, execute stratagems, and expand the provinces in their domain in real time to gain resources and move up the four victory tracks: power, prestige, popularity, and legendary achievement.
Players must use actual time as a resource in managing their strategy to best their opponents, using time on different action types and balancing it with time spent planning and analyzing. The winner will be the player who manages and invests their time most effectively and who builds the best engine, not the player who acts the quickest.
Pendulum is the highest-rated protoype in the history of the Stonemaier Games Design Day. If you enjoy Tzolk’in (time and resource optimization) and 7 Wonders (simultaneous play), we think you’ll enjoy Pendulum.
