Description Edit | History

In Thunderstone: Heart of Doom, you had a chance to face Doom's very heart, the eighth Thunderstone, and defeat the ancient evil – but winning that battle had unexpected consequences. It banished Doom, but also freed him to visit other worlds, so you advanced to the next world with him.

Thunderstone Advance: Towers of Ruin, which is fully compatible with all previous Thunderstone offerings, is the next stop in your adventure. In Thunderstone Advance you build your party of heroes to defeat the dreaded Thunderstone Bearers in their dungeons or wilderness. The player who defeats the most valuable monsters will win the day, but beware – those monsters have all-new tricks up their sleeves, and victory will not come easy.

Thunderstone Advance: Towers of Ruin includes new rules, all new cards in new card frames, and a new village and dungeon board.

1 Optional Rules Aid
These cards can be used with Thunderstone to aid in play. Print five copies to have enough for each player. Each card is designed for a specific optional rule. Only use the cards that go with the rules you are playing with. I created these cards using godeckyourself.com.

1 Village card spreadsheet (Dorfkarten-Tabelle) 1.0
Das ist eine excel-Tabelle mit allen Gegenständen, Waffen und Zaubersprüchen die man im Dorf kaufen kann. Sie gibt einen Überblick über alle Kartenwerte, aber nicht die Kartentexte. Werde bald das Gleiche für Helden und Monster machen. Viel Spaß damit.

27 Thunderstone Advance Quick Reference. (doc version 1.05)
This attempts to pull together the rules for the Thunderstone Advance game in one organized and easy-to-use listing (based on my prior reference for Thunderstone +exps): -The first two pages form a basic reference for setup & gameplay, including a layout illustration and card reference diagrams. -The third page has a simplified glossary and summarize rules for Solo, some variant setup and Theme games. -Finally page four includes a summary of tables & information based on AEG's 'Thunderstone Compatibility Guide, 21 March 2012'. I print these using Adobe Reader X on letter-size 110lb cardstock. The layout has reserved top & bottom margins to permit them to be trimmed down (approx 1/2in per long edge) to fit within older TS:Wrath of the Elements-size boxes. Let me know if I missed...

1 Thundermaster unplugged V3.0 (Labelversion) deutsch
Die Version ist aktuell bis zu Thunderstone Numenera einschließlich aller Promokarten. Gegenüber der Version 2.0 sind auch die meisten Icons durch andere ersetzt worden. Die beiden Versionen sind dadurch nicht kompatibel. Welche Labels man verwenden sollte, steht in der Anleitung dabei! Viel Spaß damit !! Wichtig: Wer irgendwelche Fehler findet (oder meint welche gefunden zu haben), bitte eine Nachricht hier über BGG, damit ich nachschauen und den Fehler gegebenenfalls ändern kann. Danke!
