Hoplomachus: Origins - The Kickstarter Approaches!

 

It's time to announce our final game in our Hoplo series!

Origins logo
Hoplomachus: The Lost Cities introduced you to 3 civilizations, Atlantis, Xanadu, and El Dorado. In the Hoplo series, these cities aren't lost...they are very much in existence! Something Rome and Pompeii find out all too quickly! After watching every move and tactic used in the arena by these foreigners, Rome finally decides to join in to win back the crowd in Hoplomachus: Rise of Rome

Now we are taking you back to the beginning, before that fated day when emissaries showed up at Rome's city gate. Hoplomachus: Origins will take you into the heart of each lost city, and place you in the hidden battle arenas designed specifically in preparation for their journey to Rome. 

Origins turns the Hoplo series on its head by including a gladiator draft mechanic. You and your opponent will be drafting units for up to 3 challenges, from the same gladiator pool! Each match will be different as players draft their favorite gladiator combos or secure gladiators best suited to the challenge. 

Origins will play much faster than its two predecessors. It features solo and versus gameplay, and matches are quick. However, a game isn't won in just one match, you will have to prove your worth in multiple arenas to be victorious. As always, you will be playing on premium quality neoprene battle mats (3) featuring The Golden Palace (El Dorado), The Earthen Oasis (Atlantis), and Top of the World (Xanadu)! 

This game features a number of new units and a completely new chip design (allowing players to draft from the same pool). These new chips and our new arenas make Holpomachus: Origins the perfect way to start or round out the Hoplo series.

There's so much more we could share but we will save it for the Kickstarter on April 16th at 10 AM (CST)! We hope to see you there! 





What about our new dice game? 

Oh its coming! August 18th to be exact!


We will have plenty of new updates to share before that time! It's truly shaping up to be a dice building strategy game that goes beyond anything you've seen before.
