As my subject, I would be glad to know if it is cooperative or competitive, if it is co-op I will back it, otherside I will pass.

Let me know if someone already knows.

It looks and sounds like a skirmish pvp. Maybe with the 1.5 mio. $ strech goal

I favor Euros, but I like pretty much all games.

I don’t know where everyone is getting the Skirmish bit from. Just because Knights is making it? There are several maps, talk of quests, it has adventure right in the name. There’s a campaign. That reads as dungeon crawler to me. Probably dungeon-crawler lite but I don’t think this will be anything like the Fallout skirmish game.

The layout of the stuff makes it look like a 1vs1 game on a grid. Maybe the quests are just scenarios for regular games.

It could be similar to Imperial Assault by having both a campaign and skirmish game, at this stage it is impossible to tell.

The description on this BGG page, and on the publisher's website includes "During the game, players must outmanoeuvre their opponents," this strongly suggests that the game is PVP.


It makes me wonder if it's going to be kinds of like Arcadia Quest, each player controlling a little team of Wizards and competing to accomplish goals and narrative events.

Co-op would seem a lot more thematic.

The "build your team however you like" comments seem to suggest you could have Harry, Draco and Bellatrix facing off against Ron, Neville and Dementor - at which point the link to the source material is virtually non-existent

I'm very glad to hear there is coop, but it also makes me hesitant. This game should have been built ground up around coop, thematically. A tacked on general 8 coop missions seems likely and will leave a lot to be desired. We'll see though, these are obviously just assumptions at this point (especially 8 coop scenarios). I just personally was super excited until I saw all of the skirmish stuff, because I'd love to see this built entirely around the coop experience. Personal preference though. Here's to hoping it has a strong coop campaign.

Where did you see this? I looked on the knight models facebook but couldnt find it. Im hoping for a solo play option so coop mode would be a dream come true.

In what Price range do you think it would be? I dont know so much about Knight models but seams to be a game that you buy your favourite "house"and then play With that team. Any thoughts?

But talking about "2+ players Scenario mode" did they write if this mode is coop or competitive?

That settles it. I'll definitely be backing this one!
But I fear the campaign will ruin me! Resin minis don't come cheap!

This is largely what I'd be worried about.

I'd love a chance for a co-op campaign, but PVP just feels weird unless you're specifically doing Good v Bad
