Back of Box: When daylight retreated from the earth, people wondered how life would go on. When the creatures of the night openly claimed the world as their own, people wondered if life would go on...
Nightfall is a competitive deck-building game from Alderac Entertainment Group. Unlike other deck-building games, Nightfall pits players directly against each other in a modern Earth where sunlight is all but gone and creatures of myth and horror stalk the planet. Can you claw your way to dominance?
AEG's unique "chain" mechanic engages every player every turn, making Nightfall the most bloodthirsty, cutthroat deck-building game on the market.
From promotional material sent with preview copy:
Nightfall is a competitive deckbuilding game, where your path to victory lies solely through your opponents. Starting with a simulation of the ever-popular booster draft format from collectible card games, Nightfall pits you against the other players for control of a world enshrouded in darkness, where the creatures of the night openly war for control of the Earth.
Using the unique "chaining" mechanic of designer David Gregg, Nightfall plays fast and furious, as your vampires, werewolves, hunters, and ghouls work to destroy one another and assert their dominance. You'll quickly find new combinations, with very clear play-styles taking the fore from game to game.
