Arcadia Quest is an exciting, adventure board game for 2-4 players created by a quartet of designers, including Eric M. Lang.

Each player controls a Guild, competing to be the liberators of the city of Arcadia and, more importantly, to become the richest and most powerful Guild in the land! Arcadia Quest combines PvE and PvP gameplay, so players battle both the Monsters that populate the board and the Heroes of other Guilds.

The Monsters react to the player's actions, so there is no Game Master, everybody gets to play as Heroes. The game is played through scenarios that make up a campaign. Players can choose the path their campaign takes, ensuring that no two playthroughs are ever the same.

As their Heroes defeat enemies and accomplish quests, they become gradually more powerful and resourceful!

  • This is just my kind of game. RPG, modular boards and everybody against everybody. The mechanics are really interesting. I personally like how the monsters behave - at first I thought it was a drag that the monsters were "passive" agents but once you start playing it, the monster mechanic is really smart.Miniature quality is superb. You can see all the characters details.One small down side is that the games can be really short with two players, and the upgrade phase and setup to the next scenario takes a little while to get done. Also, my copy of the game came with almost all tiles bend, and they don't unbend too easily.
  • Best with 3-4 players, not a very good 2 player game in my opinion. Tons of silly fun for four friends though. The items are cool, the ongoing quest is fun, with the right group its a great way to end a day of gaming for some light player versus player and questing.
  • want to play another game of this but so far it is pretty awesome game. I love the battling system and how fluid the game runs. I love the idea of questing and I really want to play this game more. Need to paint the minis

I completely get it--minis can be hit or miss for me as well.  I do find myself more and more turning the other way when I see yet another mini-laden kickstarter game.  But I must confess I can sometimes really enjoy pushing them around in a good dungeon crawl...  (I find the #Arcadia Quest ones, for instance, such a charmingly integral part of the experience.)

Thanks!  

Kinda roundabout for me--through RPG's (D&D), which I started as much for my son (9 yrs old then, just turned 10) as for myself, to try to entice him with an alternative to his immersion in video games.  Then came across #Call to Adventure and #Tapestry as a way of trying to bring my wife into gaming with us as well.  She enjoys the story-building/telling in Call to Adventure but never took an interest in Tapestry.  My son, however, fell into Tapestry with me (his strategic mind blows me away, and he beats me as often as I do him), and from there I tried #Cyclades with him, since he became obsessed with Greek Mythology through the Percy Jackson books.

I began also to discover the whole ecosystem of board gaming content on YouTube and have been particularly influenced by channels such as Rahdo and Shut Up and Sit Down, and also couples such as Ant Lab Games and Before You Play who have given me an appreciation for thinkier Euros.  I am discovering that beyond the gameplay itself, theme and artwork are quite important to me in my enjoyment of and immersion in the games I play, and the whole #Mysthea / #Icaion thing definitely pushes those buttons for me.  I acquired #Anachrony not too long ago and am still waiting to give it a go. I've loved #Trickerion--still just a bit daunted by the complexity of Anachrony but really want to get to it sooner rather than later...! 

These days, of course, much of my gaming is solo.  I never really found a gaming group outside my family before COVID hit.   My wife doesn't have much interest in longer games, so it's mostly #Codenames, #The Crew: The Quest for Planet Nine, or (most recently) #Coup that hits the table for my family--and I do very much enjoy those games with them as well.  I am holding out hopes of drawing my wife into a game of #Wingspan some time.  It's hit or miss pulling my son away from his Minecraft or Roblox online.  We did make it through a full campaign of #Arcadia Quest over the past 2 months, where he trounced me soundly.  I've got #Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion waiting in the wings... ;-) 

Thanks again for taking the interest to ask!--longer answer, probably, than you were looking for, but it was nice for me to reflect on my path down the rabbit hole...

Finally got my hands on #Trickerion recently.  Played two games against myself last week--one with the basic game board and then the second with the Dark Alley--to get the hang of the game before attempting the addition of the Dahlgaard's Heir rules for a true solo play experience.  Am already loving it--I love the flow of the game and its fully immersive blending of rules and theme.  Can't wait to get to the table again and try a game against the Heir.

Also played #Arcadia Quest with my 9-yr-old son, who is killing me.  Using a heavily equipped and very op Johan as his go-to hero, he has crushed me every game thus far. After having previously played 3 scenarios in the Outer Circle, he chose to dive right into the Evershadow District for our first go at the Inner Circle.  Whew--that's a tough one!  We're now taking a step back and in the middle of a duel in the Alchemist's District.

Also played a few short sessions of the #The Crew during the week with my wife and son and friends.  

Quite an enjoyable week overall.

A good week overall--most excited to get to know Trickerion!
