ashmogGolem Arcana: Urugal: Ashmogh Colossus

$64.99

 

It is said that the bones of the past should have been left alone, but these are desperate times and thus desperate measures were taken. The Ashmogh was resurrected from the ashes of an Urugal necropolis long buried under the desert sands, and now people wonder if it wasn’t buried with good reason. The reckless indiscrimination with which the Ashmogh destroys both friend and foe in its hunger for destruction leave many Urugal wondering if the old ways were not in fact better left resting in the dark.

Only 8 days left, are you excited yet? Well yesterday we discussed a Dropzone Commander. A game that when it came on the scene it hit the ground running and hasn’t stopped since.

Golem Arcan is a new game that could potentially hold some keys to the future of gaming. Let’s start with the basics. Golem Arcana is a miniatures board game that is striving to incorporate the use of smart devices. I did get a look at the miniatures at Origins and the are excellent. Beautifully sculpted with dynamic poses and painted with vibrant colors, what you would expect from an average to an above average hobby painter.

Golem Arcana Base Game Set 

$79.99 SRP

base game

Golem Arcana is a point-based army building game. Each player fields an army consisting of Golems, Knights (sorcerers who “pilot” the Golems), Ancient Ones (powerful gods that might intervene on the army’s behalf), and Relics (powerful magical artifacts that can be carried and deployed by Golems), and each unit has special powers and capabilities. The key to victory is figuring out how to best combine these abilities to unleash havoc on the enemy.

 

The magic of the Bluetooth-powered Tabletop Digital interface (TDI) Stylus keeps the Golem Arcana App connected to the action on the gameboard. Players move their Golems and launch attacks by tapping the appropriate game pieces with the stylus.
