Gen Con Gem: The ReckonersAugust 6, 2018
Sometimes in the glitz and the glamour, it’s easy to miss out on a game or two. This week we’ll be looking at some of the Gen Con Gems that you should definitely keep on your radar.
The Reckoners is a YA series of novels by Brandon Sanderson all about regular people who are suddenly granted super powers when the mysterious object Calamity appears. These super heroes, or Epics as they’re called, go on to destabilize governments and exert their own form of rule over their various post-apocalyptic kingdoms. Sounds like it’d make a cool game, right? Well it turns out, it does!
Funded as a Kickstarter in March, Nauvoo Games brought some copies to sell at Gen Con to get the word out. It plays sort of like a co-op King of Tokyo, where humans try to research and then take down Epics, in a desperate attempt to take back their world.
