Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game
In The Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game, players work together to solve cases from the bestselling Dresden Files
novels in the ultimate what-if scenario: What if Harry was on the scene
with allies who weren't there in the original story? Play Harry,
Murphy, Susan, Michael, and the Alphas in the first five novels, or take
on "Side Jobs" in a random scenario generator based on the short story
collection of the same name.
Play your hand, clear the board, and beat the odds in the final
showdown at the end of the book. Use teamwork, strategy, and a wee bit
of luck to win the day.
The game has plenty of in-jokes and references for Dresden fans (like
the unreliable range of the Blue Beetle), but it’s accessible to people
who haven’t read the books.
This is a tightly tuned, strategic, cooperative game that feels
intense, vital, and a little bit risky (thanks to dice and other
factors) throughout play. At 30 minutes per session, gameplay is
fast-paced and down to the wire. In this game, players take on the role
of Harry Dresden and his allies, investigating cases and taking on foes
from the books. To accomplish this, you'll share a common pool of
action points (called Fate points), and each player must choose between
taking an action or generating Fate points each turn. Solve more cases
than there are foes left standing to win!
In short, each player plays a character from the novels (one of them
is always Harry), taking on a shuffled scenario deck based on one of the
books in the series. Using a combination of cards, dice, and teamwork,
players attack foes, investigate cases, take advantages, and overcome
obstacles to make sure they have the best possible odds for a win in the
final showdown at the end of the book! Like any good cooperative game,
it's hard to win (no fun if there's no challenge!), but always rewarding
to play, and scales smoothly from one to five players.
