If you’ve ever wanted to fight alongside Aang as he battles Fire Lord Ozai, here’s your chance. You don’t even need element bending abilities. The Op Games’ new Avatar: The Last Airbender cooperative board game focuses on stopping Fire Lord Ozai. A firebending master, Ozai wants to conquer the other nations. The Hundred Year War still rages in this game. And it’s up to you and your fellow players to prevent Ozai from achieving his goal of total domination.
Avatar: The Last Airbender Fire Nation Rising puts you in control of the world’s destiny. The cooperative game play uses cards and dice to save the four nations. As you fight for the Earth, Air, Fire, and Water nations to prevail, teams led by starting heroes will help you. Aang, Katara, Sokka, Toph, and Zuko lead the teams with their own dice pools and special abilities. Having those characters on your side means you have a better chance at victory. At least it should. You’ll have to complete objectives along the way in order to be prepared to stop Ozai.
And you have to stop the Fire Lord before the Day of the Black Sun. The celestial event plays a key role in the animated series, as it does here. This Avatar: The Last Airbender board game is made for one to five players, ages 10 and up. Winning the day involves some strategy, hence the older age group.
Let’s also just note this board game comes with a highly sculpted Fire Lord Ozai figure.
It’s the only figure that comes with the game, but you know what, it doesn’t need any others.
Avatar: The Last Airbender Fire Nation Rising costs $49.99 and will arrive this summer. Find out where to buy it here.
