Form rank, gamers!
Today we’re going to be talking about RISK: Shadow Forces, our upcoming legacy game due out on August 1st of this year. It is one of our featured games at Gen Con 2022 so we’re hosting a number of special events at the convention to help players get their campaign started. As a bonus, they’ll take home the copy of RISK: Shadow Forces they started!
As mentioned above, RISK: Shadow Forces is a legacy style game, which means that players will play through 15 game campaign book during which they will unlock new content and make choices that will result in permanent changes to their copy of the game. The first choice will happen before players even start playing their first game – once they select a faction to use, they must choose between two abilities noted on stickers. One sticker is placed on the faction board, and that ability will be usable by the faction throughout the entire campaign. The other sticker is to be torn up and thrown away, forever removed from the game. Because of these legacy rules, players often want to play the entire campaign with the same players.
