Deck of Wonders - All Revealed Villains

We're 1 week into the launch of Deck of Wonders, and it's been a wild ride! The amazing community that's popped up around the game has done a ton to share it with others, which means we've revealed a ton of awesome art! Below are the Villains that have been revealed so far in the campaign, with some story around each one!

If this piques your interest, check out our campaign on Kickstarter! Also, check out our Community Art Challenge if you'd like to see more art, contribute your own, and potentially win a FREE copy of Deck of Wonders!

Cullin, the Spoiled Prince

Cullin is the pompus ruler of a woodland realm, and believes he is favored by Fate and entitled to her attention. (In reality she doesn't give a crap about Cullin, he just has rich parents and had everything handed to him.) His incompetence has put his woodland realm in decline, but instead of taking responsibility he blames it on the fact that Fate seems to be focusing her attention on you and not him (nevermind the fact that it's negative attention). He's rallied the denizens of his woodland realm to take the Deck of Wonders from you, though most of them secretly love seeing him in such a tizzy!

Cullin prefers to order his minions around, but is impatient and easy to provoke. Be careful, though: there's a reason everyone walks on eggshells around him.

Aurora, the Empath

Aurora can feel and shape the emotions of those around her at all times, whether she wants to or not. The constant bombardment of emotion keeps her on the razors edge of insanity. She worships Fate as the source of all joy and suffering, and feels Fate’s emotions strongest of all. Aurora’s only thought is to make you pay for how you’ve grieved Fate.

Aurora is hyper-aggressive, and she's even willing to hurt herself to get at you. Brace yourself for a relentless assault with plenty of collateral damage.

Byzantus, the Enthraller

Not exactly what you'd expect from an evil, mind-controlling sorcerer, eh? You'll soon learn that nothing about Byzantus is as it seems. Byzantus has hewn his fortress out of a harrowing mountainside. Many secret caves pierce the mountain range it's in, with veins of magical crystals running throughout. It is as awe inspiring to look out from these peaks as it is to look up at them, but here the most beautiful day can turn into an icy storm in an instant. Legend has it that these mountains are one of the few places in the world where Fate's gaze is not all-seeing.

Of note: your battle against Byzantus will NOT be a one-on-one. The shadowy figures behind him will play a central role: more so than any minion has before! That's the least of what makes Byzantus different from other Villains, but I don't want to spoil all the surprises...

Not-Overly-Kiddy Board Games to Play with Kids Under 10

I asked a couple days ago about games that were great to play with kids, but were also fun for adults and not overly saccharine in terms of the theme. The response was overwhelming! Well over 200 different games were recommended, some by upwards of 20 people. Since Facebook comment threads are near-impossible to parse, I took the time to aggregate the responses into the graph below. Note that I tried to catch misspellings or any obvious joke answers (noted with an "lol"), but some may have gotten through. There were also so many games, that I only put those mentioned twice or more into the graph. Please note that these are all games people suggested, so being mentioned even once is admirable. You can also see the full list in the table below the graph. Enjoy, and let me know how playing these games with your kids goes! Oh, and I'm launching my own game  Deck of Wonders  on Kickstarter in late August, and would really appreciate any support you could throw my way! Name Vot

All About Deck of Wonders

The Deck of Wonders coming soon page is live on Kickstarter!!! This is a major milestone in the sprint to launching the Kickstarter campaign, and you can check out the Deck of Wonders coming soon page here . Condensing this game down to a single image and sentence was an agonizing process, so I wanted to share more detail about the game on this blog. Below is a more detailed (though still very high-level) description of Deck of Wonders that hopefully makes you even more excited than the coming soon page did! All of this is obviously work-in-progress, and that means your input (in the comments of this article or on any of my socials) can help shape Deck of Wonders into it's final form. Enjoy, and let me know what you think! Deck of Wonders You have stolen the Deck of Wonders from Fate herself, and now she's unleashing all manner of magical minions to take it back! Her Villains beset you on all sides, and you must out-play them with the Deck of Wonders, even as they try to stack
