Mageling, a 1-4 player dice placement game in which you play as a young mage trying to save the Evertree, is about to receive an expansion: Rise of the Ancient Ones.

In the base game, you set up a grid of cards on the table, and then roll your 5 dice. You can re-roll them if you are not pleased with the result. The gist of the game is to make the best decision on how to allocate the dice. You may use them to buy energy, trigger effects in card locations, or activate cards you have purchased. The Evertree becomes weaker as the time passes which in turn makes enemies stronger. In the solo mode, you have the option of playing a campaign of 5 scenarios of increasing difficulty.
The Kickstarter campaign on November 9 will be for the reprint of Mageling, the launch of the expansion, and the release of some extras: double-sided playmats, KS exclusive cards, and Mageling miniatures.
