Millennium Blades has one of the most interesting story concepts I’ve seen in a board game in awhile. The game’s conceit is that it is about a group of friends who are in turn playing the fictional CCG “Millennium Blades.”
Millennium Blades is a board game about a fictional collectible card game, which is also called Millennium Blades. You begin the game on pre-release night with just your starter deck. You’ll open new packs, form collections, and sell your junk cards on the aftermarket to buy hot new cards. Trade with your friends, build up your deck, and prepare to compete at Millennium Blades Worlds for the title of World Champion!
I have not played it, but this looks like a cool setting for a cooperative boardgame.
George Washington. Paul Revere. Alexander Hamilton. We know the names of these heroes. But there are others who fought for the cause of Liberty, secret cabals in a hidden war that historians never talk about. These witches of the Revolution, with names like Alasdair, Okomfo, and Gwenhwyfar, led the occult forces of this world and the next against the Tyranny of King George III.
