Spirit Island


Oh snap, it's a secret preview. I'm not going to say much, but Spirit Island is the game in playtesting from cooperative game mavens and Sentinels of the Multiverse publishers Greater Than Games. A sort of reverse Catan, Spirit Island has players as powerful spirits protecting their homeland and people from the despoiling presence of a colonizing power. By destroying the invaders' cities and scaring them off the island by increasing a fear track, the spirits can gain victory. Spirits themselves have a Sentinels-style hand of powers they can accrue and use a light deckbuilding mechanic to deploy them while synergizing elemental symbols on the powers for bonus effects. While the mechanics are still being finalized, the different spirit characters on offer had an exciting range of powers and playstyles - from simple to advanced. It's coming to Kickstarter later this year.

Goodbye! That's it! Seriously this time.
