Escapade Games Announces Release of Riftwalker!

by Randy

Hello, readers!

You may have noticed that the Growing Up Gamers blog has been on hiatus. Sorry! The primary reason is that Angie and Julian have been busy designing games. The exciting news we have is that their newest game, Riftwalker: A Storm Hollow Card Game, has been delivered to Kickstarter backers and is now available at retail! Isn't that exciting?!?

Riftwalker is a strategic card game for 2-4 players. The players take on the role of a Riftwalker, one of the iconic heroes of Storm Hollow, as they explore the fantastic locations of the world. Manipulating the element grid to draw on the magic of Storm Hollow is necessary to explore and activate the magic of the land.

Here are some examples of the beautifully illustrated rift cards, representing the lands you explore:

Here is the element grid, which you interact with to explore, shift, and score:

For a pretty good overview of the gameplay, take a look at this video from Bonding With Boardgames.
