article by Kick.Agency [2019-06-04]
ltar Quest is a cooperative fantasy game, where 1 to 4 players face challenges, that fate throws in their faces. This is yet another title created by Blacklist Games, known mostly from Street Masters and Brook City.

So how is their fantasy genre debut?

The World of Altar Quest


The story of Altar Quest takes place in a world known as Aridika where classic fantasy merges with gothic horror.

Aridika was born many years ago in the minds of Adam and Brady Sadler – the designers of the game. Altar Quest is the materialization of their ideas and an invitation to explore their own world. Each session will let players learn more about its history and its dark secrets. A special deck of cards was designed so you could play the game in the “story mode” and explore the lore deeper.

Icaion – Euro Board Game Saga Continues
article by Kick.Agency [2019-06-04]
The saga by Tabula Games launched last year with Mysthea and had already managed to spawn multiple projects including: board games, a pen & paper RPG and even a graphic novel. All of them tell tales from the same universe. The newest installment not only continues the plot but also can be merged with others.


All stories take place on the planet of Icaion, a globe suffering from a mysterious calamity. A colossal crystal collided with it and changed everything from the land itself to all of the organisms populating it.

The story began with the last year’s Mysthea – an area control game about a bunch of adventurers exploring uncharted islands floating in the skies above the planet.

Fuji Koro is a game where players take on the roles of brave samurai sent by the shogun to restore artifacts hidden within the volcano, that’s supposed to shoot out an ocean of lava in a matter of moments. The situation on the board is on fire, and so is the situation on Kickstarter, as the game keeps having plenty of success.

A beautiful game…

Fuji Koro charms people with its design right away. First: the person responsible for illustrations is Miguel Coimbra, known for 7 Wonders, Cyclades, The Others and many, many more. Second: the huge box is filled to the brim with elements such as miniatures of samurai and most importantly… dragons! That’s right, if we’re dealing with a mountain and treasures, the dragons simply had to make an appearance!

REVIEW: Imnia – Our First Impressions
article by Kick.Agency [2019-04-16]
Last week we’ve received our early reviewer copy of Imnia – a first tabletop game by BlackSea Interactive. After some hours spent playing we could finally put together a proper review. So how is the game? We’ve collected all of our impressions below. Enjoy!

A Race for Victory

Imnia has a race-like feeling. The player who manages to build the first wonder wins. As the building process starts only after you reach the maximum level of influence – the game becomes naturally divided into 2 parts. The first consists of building your engine and progressing through the influence track, while the second focuses on generating the currency necessary to fund your wonder. You need a total of 42 currency units paid in three steps (7, 14 and 21).

Aeon’s End: The New Age – a Real Treat for Deck Building Fans
article by Kick.Agency [2019-02-20]
Aeon’s End is a pretty big name in the board game world. The first one appeared on Kickstarter in April 2016. 3 years have passed, and the fans could enjoy a new edition, 1 huge expansion, some smaller expansions and a legacy version as well. Now it’s time for The New Age – an edition that will merge all the existing content together!

A New Age of Aeon’s End


Each successive installment of Aeon’s End brought small changes to the mechanics, but also added a huge amount of content. As the game is based on 3 key elements: heroes, nemeses and the market – adding new cards to each of these increases the amount of things to do and boosts replayability. Aeon’s end: The New Age expands the game too (200+ market cards, 100+ nemesis cards, new heroes and nemeses), but goes a step further.
