Players: 2–5 / Ages: 12+ / Play Time: 60–90 min
The first in a trilogy of games, Daemon Trilogy: Subrosa is a drafting card game of ambition and deception. Subrosa uses app-enhanced gameplay, bringing a modern flair to the traditional card game and making it easier than ever to deceive your opponents and get the upper hand.
The Daemon Trilogy is in a world of noble houses who have captured daemons and used their abilities and power to grow their own renown and wealth. Using notable characters, assassins, mercenaries, and other devious tactics, players will continue growing the riches of their house–or fall to the power of another.
Designed by Nathan Weisman of March Hare, with oversight by Jordan Weisman, Daemon Trilogy: Subrosa uses app-enhanced gameplay, allowing 2–5 players to perform secret actions and abilities, giving everyone the shadow of secrecy to best play cards and collect their contracts. Using image-recognition software that scans each card, players can utilize a single device or log in with multiple devices to play.
In the Daemon Trilogy, game results from Subrosa will affect gameplay during the next game in the set. At the end of each game, the results will let players know what changes and updates will need to take place to characters, households, and other rules. The Daemon Trilogy is designed so all three games can be played in a single game session, with game length to be around the same time as a larger-box game of 60–90 minutes.
Jerry Bennington, VP of New Product Development, said, “We are excited for Daemon Trilogy: Subrosa and its unique gameplay. Nathan Wesiman has been able to create an experience that combines the app (for both, Apple and Android) with card gameplay to really capture the deception and strategy that makes for an exciting game. Having these games build into a series of games that can all be played in one sitting, is something we are really looking forward to people playing.”
