who are you -- and what do you want?
And appropriately so. When the release date arrives, we strongly suggest that you go to your local game store and support them. If they do not carry DoA, we can set them up. Have them come to our Stores page for information. If you do not have a local store or if they refuse to be part of something majestic, you may purchase through our Amazon presence (coming soon) or through our secure Store.
Ah, you're a freshly birthed newbie... welcome. First, pulse check. Duel of Ages II is not a light party game, and it is very different from most family hobby store games like Settlers of Catan. You'll have to strive a little to learn it. If you suffered an adrenaline-spike of fear after reading that, walk away. Otherwise, learn...
Short version: Teens and their parents -- a great parent to child game. Those who struggle with the strategies involved in Free Cell or Angry Birds -- save your money. League of Legends and Guild Wars players -- right up your alley. Men who boo loudly at baseball games -- stick to Monopoly. Of course, statistics are mere generalizations, and we are constantly surprised by the people who end up liking Duel of Ages -- German-style gamers, role-players, wargamers, elk hunters, accountants, artists, commies and fascists. We're still trying to make sense of it. When in doubt, learn... and listen...
We got everything you need right here. Duel of Ages II is specifically designed as an expandable game system. It will be interesting to see what horizons the players take it.
And you should. Duel of Ages produces a lot of chatter. Players think of new characters and missions, others have rules or strategy questions, and often there's something in a DoA game session that is so awesome it must be told. Those conversations will occur at our favorite game community, Board Game Geek. If you are not signed up and plugged in, get cracking.
First of all, thanks! Board gaming is about getting together in person, and stores make that happen. We have information for you in our Store Support Page.
That's a decision you won't regret. But you should be prepared. Go to our Conventions page to see demo and game session schedules at conventions, and learn about demoing the game.
Sorry, need to know basis. You don't need to know. However, a few crumbs of data can be found here.
