‘Two weeks ago we announced our partnership with Deniath, a geek informed marketplace where 72 hour sales are announced at significant discounts.  Today we’re unveiling our second sneak peek at a forthcoming sale!

Retailing at $24.95, I’m pretty confidant that a price of $9.99 is, well, it’s really, really amazing. Grand Tribunal will not be the only game featured in this sale, nor will it be the only game with a seriously good price tag on it.

Here’s more about Grand Tribunal from Atlas Games:

A board game of magical invention …

Imagine a world where myth is real — where wizards wield magic beyond the ken of other mortals. Imagine yourself as one of these mages, dwelling in a mystical bastion with your allies and servants, unlocking secret powers and creating wonders. Every thirty-three years the Grand Tribunal is held, attracting other wizards from far and wide to show off their magical creations for the inspection and approval of the archmages. These powerful judges vote on the best, and invite the winner to join their ranks as a new archmage — a true master of the art of magic!

Grand Tribunal is a board game for three to five players, inspired by the Ars Magica roleplaying game. In Grand Tribunal, players use Vis tokens to activate cards representing magic item types, spell categories, and resources, which they then assemble into powerful magic items. Each round, players place their votes for the item types and spell categories they’re most likely to be able to play. Three times during the game — at the periodic Tribunals — players are presented with 1st-, 2nd-, and 3rd-place awards for creating magic items with item types and spell categories that match those with the most votes. The player at the end of the game with the most points based on those awards wins!

3 to 5 players – 60 to 90 minutes – ages 12 and up

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.
