Description:

The old kingdom is in grave danger. Dispatched by the Master of Shadows, enemy armies are attacking from every direction. Now only you can save the ancient kingdom by banding together and destroying those armies.

During the game, each turn consists of several dice rolls. A player starts by rolling all of his or her dice. The player then selects a number from the rolled dice and places one or more dice with matching numbers in any of the four territories of the game board.

If, after this, the player still has dice remaining, he or she must re-roll the remaining dice and once again choose a number to be placed on the game board. This continues until the player has no more dice remaining.

Through the placement of dice the players complete tasks in order to obtain power stones that can then be used to defeat the evil armies. At the end of each player's turn, the top enemy card is revealed and placed in its matching territory.

This is where the enemy's attack takes place. As a result of this enemy attack, you will either lose dice or sustain damage in that territory. In addition to using dice to complete tasks, players can also use them to attack enemies or to retrieve lost dice.

In this cooperative game, all of the players win when they have received as many power stones as their chosen adventure board specifies. All of the players lose when the Master of Shadows and his armies conquer one of the four territories of the kingdom or when no player has any more dice available to defend the kingdom. Will your team of adventurers defeat the Master of Shadows?
