Games Workshop puts out another boardgame this weekend – The Quest to Claim the Silver Tower has begun!
via Games Workshop
Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower is a stunning boxed game for 2-4 players, set in the shifting, labyrinthine lair of a sinister Gaunt Summoner! Work with your friends to conquer the secrets of the Silver Tower, or take the glory for yourself – characters carry over the skills and treasures they have earned in previous games. The 13 double-sided board tiles mean no two adventures need be the same; a roll of the dice can send your adventurers off on wild tangents, with literally thousands of different dungeon-crawl combinations.
The long-awaited return of the classic dungeon-crawl!
Throughout the mortal realms the legends of the Silver Tower are recounted with awe and admiration. Tales of disparate champions good and evil, brought together by naught more than fate, battling against sanity-shredding horrors in the ever-shifting domain of the Gaunt Summoner of Tzeentch. Tales of bravery, heroism, treachery and betrayal. Tales of teamwork, success, and glory-hunting failure.
Some who tackle the Silver Tower seek a boon from the Gaunt Summoner, others wish to learn his true name, that they might destroy him. All must face foul, writhing monsters, bizarre, labyrinthine corridors bristling with traps and strange, maddening riddles before they even gain the chance to stand before his fell sorcery. The greatest champions, those who grow in strength over time as they solve the Silver Tower’s secrets, even they may fall at this hurdle – yet the riches, power and freedom they could gain drive them ever forward. But for every tale that ends in glory, another falls short, bringing only madness and despair…
Labyrinth of the Lost $14.99
Deep within the sorcerous labyrinth of the Silver Tower, a small band of champions fights for survival. Some seek to win glory and power by defeating the master of this ever-changing realm. Others look only to survive, and to escape the hellish maze before it takes their lives, their souls or their sanity. Forced to work together, the champions must overcome bitter rivalries and age-old hatreds in their quest to defeat the twisted machinations of the Gaunt Summoner. Yet lies and illusion spill through the Silver Tower like a flood, and none of these questing heroes is quite what they seem…Advertisement
READ IT BECAUSE
It’s a classic adventure tale of heroes on a quest in a labyrinth… but it’s given some twists that could only occur in the Age of Sigmar and some bizarre circumstances that could only come about when you’re dealing with the servants of Tzeentch, the God of Change.
