Weirdwood Manor is a cooperative board game that marries great adventure gameplay with some euro-inspired underpinnings, as you and your group of valiant companions battle to protect Weirdwood Manor and its ruler, Lady Weirdwood, from an invading Fae Monster and his Clockwork Scarab minions.
Players will make use of dice drafting, card play, resource management, and location actions as they move through the ever-shifting Manor in pursuit of the Fae Monster and his minions.
As the game progresses, the Fae Monster’s strength will grow and things will become more dire for the players so they will have to work together to solve the challenges in front of them. The game offers deep tactical choice and a degree of unpredictability that will make traditional leader quarterbacking virtually impossible; the players will truly have to strategize as a group to succeed as the threat deepens!
We will be giving away 5 copies of the Deluxe Version of Weirdwood Manor before our Kickstarter launch in the Spring of 2023 to five lucky people!
As well, don't miss out on updates on play-testing events, conferences, the KS launch — and one or two surprises we can’t talk about yet!
Rooms can shift and corridors can move, leading you to unexpected places and opportunities. Our unique board features a modular design where the various room positions change from game to game — and even during the same game. And our circular design allows the connecting corridors to rotate throughout the game, affecting where the players can go and what they can do!
Every time a player or the Fae Monster takes an action, time will move forward in the game and the connections between the rooms will shift via the rotating corridor rings on the game board. Players have some agency in how to use their actions to affect how quickly (or slowly) time moves; but beware, if the players use up their allotted time and have not defeated the monster, they lose!
Using their unique powers, players can create varied and powerful chains of actions on their turn. Players will also slowly improve their character as the game progresses, adding more dice to use in battles, allotting experience points to give them an edge in other areas of their choice, or even recruiting companions to help them!
Each Fae Monster comes with their own board, unique mechanics, and deck of cards that will have them act in differing and unpredictable ways. And each Fae Monster will have his own, sinister way to bring possible defeat to the players!
