Watch your Back: Week March 26 to April 1

March ends with a heavy hitter by Chip Theory Games and two other projects, let's dive in!


So, Chip Theory brings an adaptation of The Elder Scrolls video game to tabletop: The Elder Scrolls: Betrayal of the Second Era is a 1-4 player cooperative adventure game in which heroes try to stop an evil scheme, earning experience points along the way.

Expect neoprene map tiles, a lot of dice, and of course, chips. Heroes will journey across the land, and, if they reach a town, they will get a town event; if they end their movement elsewhere, they will have either a peaceful encounter or a fight. Once the two quests included in the game are completed, you enter the end phase which will differ according to the results of your quests. It is launching on Gamefound on March 28.

Personal opinion: I have never played a CT game before, and I'm seriously considering this one. Free shipping is certainly an incentive.


On the same day (March 28), also on Gamefound, we have Tir Na Nog: a 1-5 player drafting and hand management game in which you are a storyteller travelling to the land of Tir Na Nog seeking to narrate the best saga when you return.

In each round, players lay claim on multiple cards and then draft one card and play another card from their hand. Not much else is known at this point, solo rules included.

Personal opinion: Beautiful artwork but it's a competitive game, so let's see how it plays solo.


The last game for today is Crown of Ash: a 1-4 player worker placement and area control game in which necromancers send out undead armies to fight for a claim to power.

On their turn, players place a worker on the board to either gather resources, build a base to control the area, or fight an opponent. In the solo mode, you play against an AI. It is launching on Kickstarter on March 28.

Personal opinion: I believe area control games are best multiplayer.
