Aventuria Adventure Card Game - News

Aventuria Card Preview – Suffocation

Today we’re going to focus on a simple one-shot card that helps us explain in more detail a number of the mechanics and design principles of Aventuria. This card, Suffocation, is from the hero deck of Mirhiban Al’Orhima, the Tulamydian Mage.

We have now finished posting a plethora of videos on the Kickstarter campaign, and we are excited to share those with you.


Aventuria Card Preview – Time Scale Cards

If you read our first card preview, the Bandit Thief, you may have noticed some cryptic text towards the bottom and wondered, “What is this hourglass thing doing here?”

That hourglass is a Time Counter, and it’s part of the mechanic that makes Adventure Mode combat challenging but also flexible. To explain more, we’re going to talk about the Time Scale cards.

Aventuria Card Preview – Hero Actions

(This article contains mild spoilers for one of the adventures in the Aventuria base set.)

The Adventure Mode in the Aventuria Card Game has two phases. First, there is the story, in which the text of the adventure is read and the heroes face skill challenges that can improve or worsen their overall position on the way to the final conflict. A typical adventure chapter has about 3 to 4 skill challenges during this phase. Then comes the combat, in which the heroes fight against a combination of Leaders and Henchmen. The abilities of the Leader and the specific Henchman drawn provide quite a bit of variety in the combat experience, but there is usually even more going on. (more…)

Aventuria has two modes – a Duel Mode in which heroes face off against each other, and an Adventure Mode in which heroes team up to face challenges and defeat villains in combat. Henchmen make up a large part of the combat in Adventure Mode, so let’s take a look at a typical henchman card, the Bandit Thief.



The Aventuria Kickstarter is Live

The Aventuria Card Game Kickstarter has now launched! Come join the adventure!

We’ve talked before about the structure of the pledge levels, so you already know what to expect. Now come help us make this great game and unlock some amazing stretch goals!

Announcing the Aventuria Card Game Kickstarter

Arm yourself for battle! The Kickstarter for the English edition of the Aventuria Card Game launches this week!


The official launch time will be Thursday, September 15th at 10:00am Eastern Time (14:00 UTC, 16:00 Germany).

As we had mentioned in our previous post, you won’t need to make a lot of add-on decisions or worry about shipping right at first. However, if you feel like jumping into the deep end, there are a very limited number of pledges at our highest level, which is something very special indeed. We expect those to be snapped up quickly.

The stretch goals won’t be visible at launch, but we will be watching very closely. We’ll start posting stretch goals once we reach our funding target.

Come join the adventure this Thursday!

Crafting a Kickstarter: Aventuria


We’re getting close to being able to announce the official launch date of the Aventuria Kickstarter. There are some final details to be worked out, so some things are still subject to change. However, we thought it might be good to give you a little overview of how we’re approaching this Kickstarter. (more…)

Gen Con Roundup

The whirlwind of chaos is beginning to subside, and we are working on catching up on all the things we have to do for our many projects (and yes, our first priority is making sure all the backer rewards are shipped). It was fantastic having members of the German and North American teams get together! I can’t even describe how much I learned about Aventuria just listening to Nico talk to customers. He’s an absolute treasure.

It was also wonderful meeting so many people and getting them excited about our various products! The response on everything has been overwhelmingly positive. While we were there, we heard many questions more than once, and there were a few new pieces of information that we decided or discovered along the way, so it makes sense for us to do a wrap-up post covering some of the most important items:


Ulisses Spiele at Gen Con!

We’re just a little over two weeks away, so I know everyone here is getting excited about Gen Con. We hope you are too!

And if you are coming to the convention, we hope that you will come visit us, talk with us, and take a look at everything we’re bringing. First of all, here’s where we’ll be:

Gen Con 2016 Map

We’re at booth 2661, one aisle over from Entrepreneur’s Avenue. And if you look at the catalog, you’ll see that we’re also listed as being at booth 103, which is the Paizo booth. That’s because our products will be selling there as well!

We have a lot of things happening while we’re there. Of course we’ll be showing off everything that we can of The Dark Eye. We should have most of the Kickstarter items printed and available for sale.

We’ll also be demoing the Aventuria Adventure Card Game, which will be Kickstarting its English edition later in August!

But that’s not all! We also be previewing Conan: Rise of Monsters by showing off some miniatures and terrain for that game. In case you weren’t aware, Ulisses Spiele is partnering to help with publishing and distribution of that game as it looks towards a Kickstarter in the early/mid fall.

And we’ll be talking about Torg, which Ulisses Spiele is working on bringing back in a new edition towards the end of 2016!

Please come talk to us and find out all the amazing things we have planned! We want to meet all our fans!
