ENGN Preview Series 49 – Adventure Mart and Prisma Arena

Jason hearkens back to a happier time in this episode when folks were allowed to have game demos in-game stores! This episode hails from the Brooklyn Strategist, a terrific game store in Brooklyn, where Rory O’Connor of Hub Games visited and demoed a few games.

First up is Adventure Mart, a light deck builder depicting store owners in a fantasy convenience store, selling weapons to adventurers, and building your empire. Instead of simply buying cards, you bid for them against other players, which creates opportunities for interaction and light, friendly screwage. This one will go directly to retail very soon.

We also played Prisma Arena, an arena combat game reminiscent of HeroClix with a low barrier of entry and lots of card-based tactical movement and combo play. The Kickstarter for this one will be live on Tuesday, May 19th.

  • Anthony lives and plays games in Philadelphia, PA. A lover of complex strategy, two-player war games, and area control, Anthony is always eager to try a new game, even if he's on rule-reading duty.
