    Nice! Can you give us a hint what the style of gameplay is like? Like is it similar to e.g. Scythe, Blood Rage, etc?

    The Mini

    This mini you can buy.... It's price is is USD, for the Europe release? It's £25, with shipping, for a single game piece?

    can you tell us more about this mini, and why it's so good for the game. I feel very hesitant ordering this mini at present

    You may be confused with the Cortex RPG thats been announced. This is a different game. By my count, we have 2 board games (this and CMON) and the RPG being released in the near future

    I love how prominent Tri-Klops is on that cover art! (Me = Tri-Klops fanboy.)

    I'll have to figure out a way to get a copy to me in the States.

    Sorta.. yes.

    America:
    • RPG GAME by Fandom "Legends of Grayskull" 2021


    America:
    • CMON MOTU Game (no details so far)


    Europe:
    • ARCHON STUDIOS: "Fields of Eternia" Game (end of 2020 at Kickstarter - and on shelves in 2021).



    They are all different games.
    And I can say that the Fields of Eternia is an action-adventure game with control elements.
    If there is enough demand and support for different languages, Archon Studios can make a translated version.
    It will include She-Ra.
    And the lore in it is based on MOTU Classics (hence why posted on Classics forum).

    As I've understood it. Archon Studios has the deal for Europe.

    So to get the board game, it would need to be a second-hand seller or the likes.

    Hi Dave,

    just to reiterate my confusing from up thread, The mini - it's in dollars (for a Europe release) and shipping is about 50% of the $33 price. Is this correct? £25 (converted) is a lot for a single mini and game card. If that's the price, can you explain what value this mini will bring to the game? Improve Stats, additional options, etc.

    thank you

    How many factions will we have?

    He-man
    She-ra
    Hordak
    Skeletor
    King Hiss

    And then?

    I hope for Evil lyn and Count Marzo to have their distinct factions too.

    Factions in the base game: Masters of the Universe (He-Man, She-Ra etc) and Evil warriors (Skeletor, Evil Lyn etc) we will also be adding (add ons) The Horde and Snake men, so currently we have plans for 4 factions, with the possibility of more later on.

    I have had a word with the shop admin to change the currency. The shipping is due to Covid restrictions that we are still under here in Poland. The mini will bring additional movement and Attack Damage to the Character giving them the edge in early game play. We will also be introducing more minis of this nature so that other factions have access to similar bonuses.

    This is all totally awesome and amazing and I can't wait for all the MOTU/POP games. I would like New Adventures to be reimagined in something like this as well, I especially love characters like Hydron, Tuskador, Sagitar and Flipshot.

    Hi Dave, as a massive fan of all forms of tabletop gaming I can truthfully say that the announcement of this is one of the best things to happen to me this YEAR! The artwork I've seen is amazing and I ordered the He-Man & BattleCat mini as soon as I saw it!

    I have to confess that I've not heard of Archon before - please could you tell me a little bit more about your company? And Jukka, are you able to spill the beans about your involvement at all?

    Take care...
    Part of the "Kidult" craze long before it was a thing! : )
