7 Wonders is getting another expansion, called "Edifice". The expansion brings a new type of card, "edifices", that aims to add a new type of player interaction without increasing play time or complexity. During setup, 3 edifice cards (1 per age) are added to the game. Help to construct one of the projects to receive a token that makes you eligible for the rewards, or penalties, if it is completed at the end of the age. There is one less token than players, so not everyone will be able to participate!

This adds a new layer to the game. Will you focus on yourself and ignore these projects (but potentially missing out on a lot of good rewards that the other players may gain), or will you cooperate even with the penalty risk if you fail? If you do decide to cooperate, it is also the decision on which one, which player you'd ideally want to help along (or not), and so on. This seems like a good addition to the 7 Wonders game, as the game definitely could use more player interaction...

James said:
It is definitely challenging and a lot of work to write a campaign. But you also get a very unique opportunity to tell a cool story, which I enjoyed immensely. I worked with writers and friends: Ryan Biddulph and Kevin Houle to write the main storyline and the character stories and archs for Lludwik's Labyrinth. I wrote a ton of the in-game events and many people at Skybound Tabletop helped all over as well. The result of all our collaboration is a really neat story that you can even get involved in. It is so very silly at first, but it lands in some really fun and creative and hilarious, and sad and even creepy places at times. The main setting of being in the...

The first thing that peeked my interest was the incredible art. They have truly done an amazing job with the design and style. I've always looked to find a card game that gave me some Hearthstone vibes in a board game format, and AracKhan Wars looks to tick that itch. I don't really...
