HBSGA001After a hugely successful Kickstarter campain, Harebrained Schemes will be releasing Golem Arcana in August of this year! Retailing at $80 for the core set, Golem Arcana is a point-based miniatures game that uses a pen to interface the miniatures and such with an iPad/Android device.

Examples of the electronic interface include:

To Move:

• Tap the base of the Golem you want to move.

• Tap the square on the board you’d like to move to.

• The App calculates movement costs, reminds you of the appropriate rules when necessary, and handles any necessary record keeping.

To Launch an Attack:

• Tap the base of the Golem making the attack.

• Tap the base of the target.

• The App calculates line of sight, the chance to hit (automatically applying all the relevant modifiers), and expected damage.

• Roll the dice. (Or have the App do it for you!)

This is one I’ve been dying while waiting for release. The whole concept of the game is amazing, and the miniatures all look amazing.

Also available in August will be certain creature expansion packs for $35, and a tile expansion for $25. Future releases will start arriving in September.
