Seek vindication after a life of greed and treachery in this strategic fantasy euro board game. Behold the lofty game descriptors: high-strategy, tableau building, resource management, area control, action selection, modular board, and variable player powers.
Thrown overboard for a life of wretchedness, you're left to die in the icy black sea. Just before vanishing into endless darkness, you wash ashore a hostile island ruins where you are revived by a traveler. As you open your eyes to your bizarre new home, you find that something better, something stronger has awakened inside you.
Manage your personal attributes wisely and call on your conviction as you leverage your influence to gain companions, control locations, acquire mysterious relics, bash horrific monsters and (if it’s your style) snuggle some seriously exotic pets in the ultimate goal of mastering heroic attributes — and regaining your lost honor before the end of the epoch is triggered!
Vindication (formerly Epoch: The Awakening) is a highly strategic, fantasy-based tabletop journey for 2-5 players. Play time is 15-30 minutes per player.
Thrown overboard for a life of wretchedness, you wash ashore a hostile island ruins — completely alone with nothing except the breath in your lungs and an undaunted spirit.
Through your advanced resource management, area control tactics, and freeform action selection, you’ll add companions to your party, acquire bizarre relics, attain potent character traits, and defeat a host of unusual monsters in the ultimate goal of mastering heroic attributes — and regaining honor.
You may perform 3 actions on each turn in the order you feel is most advantageous that turn: activate a companion, travel to a new location, and interact with a map tile. Many actions require the the use of your influence to gain attributes in a one-of-a-kind heroic attribute alchemy system, which is leveraged to gain the game's most powerful rewards. For example, you can meditate at a spire to gain inspiration. You can train at a fort to gain strength. But then you can combine your inspiration and strength to gain the courage (inspired strength) which allows you to perform a bounty hunt.
There are distinctive end-game triggers that can be affected through game play, over 72 unique card abilities that can be merged in unusual ways for potent combinations, and fresh tile placement each game for high replayability.
