Oath Chronicles of Empire and Exile is the new board game from Cole Wehrle and Leder Games. The Kickstarter has started fulfilment and we now have a release date for the retail edition in the UK: August 2021. Pre-orders for the retail release are now open and looking back to the Root retail release I would recommend to place a pre-order as early as possible to secure a copy. As always with pre-orders at Meeples’ Corner there is no payment taken when you place your pre-order, we will contact you for payment when the stock has arrived.
If you haven’t heard about Oath, here are a few more details:
In Oath Chronicles of Empire and Exile, one to six players guide the course of history in an ancient land. Players might take the role of agents bolstering the old order or scheme to bring the kingdom to ruin. The consequences of one game will ripple through those that follow, changing what resources and actions future players may have at their disposal and even altering the game’s core victory condition.
If a player seizes control by courting anarchy and distrust, future players will have to contend with a land overrun by thieves and petty warlords. In a later game, a warlord might attempt to found a dynasty, creating a line of rulers that might last generations or be crushed by the rise of a terrible, arcane cult.
In Oath Chronicles of Empire and Exile, there are no fancy production tricks, app-assisted mechanisms or production gimmicks. The game can be reset at any time and doesn’t require the same playgroup from one game to the next. A player might use the fully-featured solo mode to play several generations during the week and then use that same copy of the game for Saturday game night with friends. There are no scripted narratives or predetermined endpoints. The history embedded in each copy of Oath will grow to be as unique as the players who helped build it.(Source: Publisher description)
