Telling your character’s story is the heart of the game in Call to Adventure from Brotherwise Games. Part choices you make and part luck of the draw (literally), you and your fellow players might not know what the future holds on your character’s journey, but you’ll have a blast getting there.
Brotherwise Games, maker of Boss Fight, brings you this competitive hero-building game for two to four players–or you can choose to play solo or cooperatively. It’s your story, after all! Players have three acts to craft their characters by drawing cards that determine traits, abilities, pivotal moments in their history, and more. As they face challenges by casting runes to tell their tales, players earn Destiny Points. The hero (or anti-hero) at the end of the game with most Destiny Points wins.
The game begins by choosing your Origin, Motivation, and Destiny by drawing two cards in each category and picking one of each. Next, on their turn players choose to gain trait cards or tackle the challenge cards on the table, throwing runes instead of throwing dice to determine their successes and failures.
The ultimate goal of Call to Adventure is to tell your character’s Story—and make it a good one. Each player will have their own epic tale to tell, but it’s the one that garners the most Destiny Points who’s declared the winner. Drawing cards and making your choices each time you and your friends play guarantees that the same story will never be told twice, and every game will be its own unique experience.
Will your most heroic deed be slaying a dragon, or is it confessing your feelings to your true love? Both take tremendous amounts of courage. And both can win you the game.
Call to Adventure is now available to order at your favorite local game store, and you’ll also find related accessories like custom card sleeves on the Brotherwise Games website. Will you answer the call on your hero’s journey?
