Wizkids has announced a Monumental Edition of Clash of Cultures, the classic civ-style game formerly published by Z-Man.
Clash of Cultures: Monumental Edition marks the return of the classic Euro-style exploration game with new updates. This massive edition includes the base game as well as highly coveted Civilizations and Aztecs expansions, and comes with the seven Wonders as fully sculpted miniatures. It also features all new cover art, new sculpts for the minis, and improved graphic design. The game box includes over 300 re-sculpted buildings, units, and ships, 7 uniquely sculpted Wonders,a turn tracker, 150+ cards, 4 player boards, 4 player aids, 8+ dice, 200+ cubes, hundreds of tokens, and rules for the base game and expansions.
We have been a bit quiet in the last couple of days, but we had a reason for it: we have been buried under a flood of new games. So far we have received 16 new games/expansions with the two biggest hits (Marvel Champions and Tapestry / both Friday) still coming.
But there have been production issues and it looks like the game has been delayed and pushed back to the start of 2019:
Yes it has been delayed and that is because we were not satisfied with certain components. We do apologize but we want this to be a good project.
Plus when one envisions what the game will look like you see things that can be improved upon after actually seeing a sample – and that is what we did. Making sure the trays work. Making sure the components are the best quality that is affordable, etc.
As announced last year, Betrayal Legacy was developed by Rob Daviau (see “‘Betrayal Legacy’ by Rob Daviau”) and it is built on the same themes and mechanics as the original game. In this version, the actions of the players during each game leaves a permanent mark on the infamous “House,” ultimately resulting in a unique re-playable version of the game at the end of the campaign. The storyline of the legacy campaign reveals the history of the house, told over a series of generations, that tells how it became a focus for the unnatural and supernatural forces that haunt it.
