Hillside, NJ – March 4, 2019 – WizKids is excited to announce the upcoming release of Nemo Rising, a cooperative adventure game based on C. Courtney Joyner’s thrilling sequel to Jules Verne’s classic novel!
In this exciting 1-4 player adventure game, players become members of a reimagined version of the Nautilus’ heroic crew, and must carry out missions in order to successfully complete the requirements of one of two scenarios— The Undersea Grotto or the City in the Sky. Each scenario represents a unique location with its own geography, environment, and adventures.
Players work together to accomplish the Mission Goals outlined on the game’s Mission Cards. Each round consists of two phases, the Action Row Phase and the Player Phase. During the Action Row Phase, a number of Threat Cards will be placed face down in the Action Row, and then the same number of Action Cards will be placed face up on top of them. The Player Phase then begins. During the player phase, each player can move around the board, scout Adventure Tiles, attempt Tasks, and confront Enemy Tokens. Player turns can be taken in any order, and the order can change each round. The game may be played solo, with one player controlling a single Hero. In this case, there are always two stacks of cards in the Action Row during the Action Row Phase.
The game ends and the Heroes win if they complete all of the Mission Goals on the game’s two Mission Cards, secure at least 4 Adventure Tiles, and then return to the Start space. All Heroes must be on the Start space at the same time in order for them to win. The Heroes lose, however, if they run out of Mission Points on the Mission Track.
With its exciting and unpredictable adventures, Nemo Rising is the perfect way to experience the escapades of Captain Nemo and his crew directly from the captain’s seat. Board the Nautilus and pre-order Nemo Rising, releasing this fall, from your Friendly Local Game Store today! Are you up for the adventure?
