Fantasy Flight Games has an Epic Adventure Card Game you’re going to want to take a look at…

Warhammer Quest: The Adventure Card Game is a co-operative card game set in the Old World of Warhammer Fantasy. In the game groups of 1-4 players (yes, you can play solo) challenge the dark underbelly of the city of Schompf. It’s definitely in the same vein as the Lord of the Rings Card game, so if you like the ability to craft decks for the heroes and attempt to fight your way through a Card/Quest based game, this is a game you should check out!

Warhammer Quest: The Adventure Card Game is a cooperative game of heroic dungeon adventures for one to four players. Players assume the roles of some of the Old World’s most iconic heroes, then venture into the shadows to battle Ghouls, Goblins, Skaven, giant bats, swarms of rats, and other monsters. Can you survive their relentless onslaught? Can you press deeper into their lair to find the evil villain that drives them forward? There are only two ways for your quest to end – in death or in glory!

This game actually has some cool dice mechanics to go along with the cards.

This isn’t your run-of-the-mill CCG style competitive game. Players are trying to complete a quest and continue the campaign.

    It’ll be interesting to see how long it takes GW to put out new content for the new Warhammer Quest. I might def try this out tho. There’s something very easily portable about a card game.

      This Game has been out for a bit but FFG is the one doing it. They also have those two expansions on the way too. So it’s a good time to jump in.

      • Emprah

        At least its not AOS.

      • ZeeLobby

        Haha. Yeah. I have some gamer friends who simply don’t want to build or paint minis. So it’s awfully tempting.

  • Shinnentai

    pfft – how do they expect to sell this to gullible children when it doesn’t even have a Sigmarine on the cover?

    Funny, I would have thought my AoS vitriol would have dried up by now, but nopes, still have plenty to spray around the internets ^__^

      Most people get on the internet to recharge their hatred of things.

      Pretty sure the Internets are fueled by vitriol… Well, that and nudie sites.

  • Shawn

    yay, another card game. yay. (definitely sarcasam).

  • Benoit Tremblay

    Hum, is this an advertisment? The game’s been out for over 6 months!

  • Drew

    This is a GREAT game- I picked it up for WQ nostalgia’s sake and was very pleasantly surprised. FFG clearly does co-op games very well, and have taken a lot of the guts of their equally excellent Lord of the Rings LCG to build this one, but at a much simpler and faster pace. I’d highly recommend it.
