This summer will see the release of the most highly anticipated Stonemaier Games title yet; a sequel to the hit board game Scythe. In Expeditions, players lead parties of adventurers into the Siberian wilds to explore a mysterious massive crashed meteorite. The game is for one to five players, ages 14+, and plays in around 60 to 90 minutes. The standard edition will carry an MSRP of $85.00 and the Ironclad edition will carry an MSRP of $115.00 when they hit retailers in August. You can preorder now to save ($69.00/$99.00 respectively) and score the game ahead of retailers.
About the game:
The standalone sequel to Scythe sends players on a new adventure into Siberia, where a massive meteorite crashed near the Tunguska River, awakening ancient corruption. An expedition led by Dr. Tarkovsky ventures into the taiga to learn about the meteorite and its impact on the land. Itching for adventure, heroes from the war privately fund their own expeditions to Siberia, hoping to find artifacts, overcome challenges, and ultimately achieve glory.
Expeditions is a competitive, card-driven, engine-building game of exploration. It is designed to evoke similar feelings to Scythe even though the mechanisms are different: Play cards to gain power, guile, and unique worker abilities; move your mech to mysterious locations and gain cards found among the tiles; use workers, items, meteorites, and quests to enhance your mech; and use power and guile to vanquish corruption.
Expeditions is available both as a standard edition (plastic mechs) and an Ironclad Edition (metal mechs).
