IDW Takes on Munchkin with Awesome Kingdom.
- Humorous fantasy card game.
- From Kevin Wilson of Descent fame.
- 2-4 players.
- Available this summer.
There are a few humorous takes on the world of dragons and the heroes who slay ‘em. Munchkin is perhaps the most successful of these, a card game that has tongue strongly planted in cheek. Now, IDW Games wants to enter the fray with Awesome Kingdom: Tower of Hateskull a new card game from Kevin Wilson (Descent, Arkham Horror) that promises to give you a chuckle as you dungeon dive for treasure.
You are one of eight epic characters (the list includes Ragebarian, Prestidigimancers, and Paladude) plunging into the depths of a dungeon in search of gold and other goodies. You’ll battle monsters, avoid traps, and then fight your way back out with (hopefully) the biggest loot haul.
Wilson cites Saturday morning cartoons were the main inspiration. “I tried to channel that sense of unrestrained fun” of those old ‘80s shows, Wilson says.
Here’s hoping Awesome Kingdom, available this summer, can equal and surpass those great ‘80s classics.
