Developed as an answer for how to playtest an upcoming Kickstarter boardgame campaign during a pandemic, Hoards of Glory has grown into a full video game offering!
It is a simple game to learn, but not so easy to win, particularly if Veridandi of the Norns shows you no favor when you roll your dice!
Each player has a Boast they must live up to, represented by a Boast Card. To win, they must be the first to fill in all the Tasks on their Boast Card by rolling dice, and matching dice results to slots on the card.
Players begin with five coins and four dice, each one a different color; Red, Green, Yellow, Blue. Four sides represent wealth, but one side is a shield and another a spear. Players roll these dice and use the results to fill in their Boast Card, Attack other players, Defend themselves from attack, or earn more coins, which are then used to buy more dice. Who will be the first Captain to complete their Boast Card!
