The Rise & Fall of Anvalor
Hello again everyone !!
New board game by wizkids named : The Rise & Fall of Anvalor
An exciting new licensed board game from WizKids (whose previous credits include Warhammer 40,000 Dice Masters), set in the Age of Sigmar – The Rise & Fall of Anvalor. Here’s the story so far…
“Many previous attempts to build a lasting fortification at Anvalor have failed. Its strategic location on the Great Parch, a particularly arid region of Aqshy, the Realm of Fire, is of supreme importance. However, each new effort to establish a significant foothold has also irked a new foe, an enemy who rises to the challenge of thwarting the attempt. Equally distant from Anvilgard, Hammerhal Aqsha and the City of Brimstone, the competing factions of those great cities have put their quarrels aside and committed to a final push to rebuild Anvalor together. Whoever can secure the new stronghold will also dominate the Great Parch, significantly strengthening their influence in all the Mortal Realms.”
Sounds like trouble is definitely brewing! Warhammer Age of Sigmar: The Rise & Fall of Anvalor is a 1-4 player game that lasts up to an hour with each playthrough. In the game, you and your rivals compete to gather the most influence in Anvalor in order to dominate the budding city or cause its downfall. The player who secures the most influence at the end of the game wins.
There are six playable factions to choose from, ranging from famous Aqshian rivals, the Hammers of Sigmar and the Khornate legions of Khorgos Khul, to the Vorstarg Fyreslayer Lodge and even the Order Serpentis. We’ll be bringing you more information on this game in the future, so keep your eyes peeled.

He dev games in open source with the Bgdev.club
I am intrigued to see what they do with the licence this time.
