Easy to Learn.. Hard to Master
We knew right from the start we needed to make a game that was fun for new players and rewarding for experienced players. That's why most players are able to grasp the game-play in
1 turn or less! And while it's easy to pick up and play, more experienced players will see the deeper game-play mechanics and take home the victory.
"Fate of Venterra" is designed similar to games like video games Star Craft, Age of Empires, and board games Scythe and Risk. And don't worry, there's no need to buy several miniatures expansions. Our game comes with all of the troops you'll need!
What makes our game unique?
1. Movement style not in any other game
There are 2 different types of movement in "Fate of Venterra." All of your units move from ONE territory to ANY OTHER place or all of your units move from ANY OTHER place to ONE territory. This type of movement makes planning in advance very important and rewards players who can use it effectively.
2. Asymmetrical factions with different play styles
Not only is each faction different, they also have an unlimited amount of strategies. You can play them however you want, which means even after 100+ play-throughs we are still seeing new and evolving strategies. Your imagination is the limit!
3. The game is a play ground
It's no joke. Players build the board, they pick their starting spot, and they make their strategy. You the player are in control and each time you play its different. That is a constant thing we here from play testers, they love how each time they play is totally different from the last.
We are constantly looking at new ways to play the game with just the standard game, no extra components. For examples: teams, story mode, solo mode, king of the hill. All amazing ideas thought up by the community. While we do have expansions in mind, the goal is to have a game that is great, just the way it is.
