Meople News: Arcane Ninja’s Luck

Fantasy Flight Games

With the new, revised edition of Arcana Fantasy Flight Games is sending us back to the city of Cadwallon. In this week’s preview, we’re looking at two optional expansions contained in the revised edition. Guild Masters give your guild special abilities that would be really unfair and overpowered if the other players didn’t have equally powerful options. The Random Event cards add new rules on every turn, shaking up the game even more.

AEG

Alderac is bringing their long-running and very popular Legend of the Five Rings role-playing and collectible card franchise to the game board with Ninja: Legend of the Scorpion Clan. In this game by Fr├ęderic Moyersoen one player takes control of a ninja of the Scorpion Clan, trying to infiltrate the Lion Clan’s Fortress undetected by its guards – played by one or two of the other players – and aided by a traitor in the guards’ ranks.

The Game Master

Dutch publisher The Game Master is aiming to release Michael Rieneck and Stefan Stadler’s Fortuna in early September. The trailer video is detailed on the content of the game but says nothing about the mechanics, but that information will certainly come through in the coming months.
