Mantic November Releases

Mantic has announced all the November releases.  Some are pretty obvious, but there may be a surprise or two as well.

Star Saga: The Eiras Contract Core Set
Countless stars, endless adventure! The Galactic Co-­‐Prosperity Sphere is the most technologically advanced civilisation in the history of mankind. When a powerful corporation starts stealing secrets, a
team of the galaxy’s deadliest mercenaries is hired to retrieve them. Their target: a network of laboratories hidden deep beneath the surface of the planet Eiras. The reward is high, but so is the risk! If the elite guards weren’t enough, our heroes will also have to deal with the monstrous creations of Eiras’ twisted master...

Welcome to Star Saga, a game of high adventure in a futuristic world of space travel, advanced technology, and myriad alien races. Choose your character and take to the table-­‐top to defeat evil scientists,  merciless Marines, and devious puzzles. As the story takes unexpected twists and turns you’ll be forced to make difficult decisions to stay alive.

The game allows for up to five players, pitting the intrepid Mercenaries against the scheming Nexus player. The game can also be played co-­‐operatively or even solo. Play a single game in just 30 minutes, or combine the immersive scenarios with innovative new campaign rules for hours of gameplay.

This box contains everything you need to get right into the action, including fully-­‐assembled, highly-­‐ detailed coloured plastic  miniatures, beautifully designed floor Mles, learn-­‐as-­‐you-­‐play rules, dice, tokens, and all the scenery you need to bring your board to life! W

hen the fate of the universe hangs in the balance, which part will you play in the epic Star Saga?
