Matt Worden, maker of Jump Gate & Dicey Curves, has announced the first title of his “Tales of Danger” games series: Days of Discovery will launch on Kickstarter in Spring of 2015. After that, Worden plans to release two games for the series each year in 2016, 2017 and 2018 totaling seven games.
Each of the board games will be set in different eras of the Land of Danger’s history.
Jess: The continuation of a world’s story told through games reminds me of AEG’s Tempest game series with such games as Love Letter and Courtier. It is really fun to play the games back to back and watch the history of the world unfold.
Tales of Danger #1: Days of Discovery is set to be available for retail and distribution in Q4 2015 if the Kickstarter goes though. The game revolves around medieval Portugal as players attempt to be the first explorer to discover the Land of Danger. It is a light-to-medium strategy game for 1 to 5 players, and take 30 to 60 minutes to play.
“I’ve been imagining and refining elements of this game series for over ten years, so finally being able to bring this to the public is exciting. My hope is that people will get caught up in the story and look forward to each game in the series as the plot continues to unfold.”
-“Tales of Danger” designer Matt Worden
