1 – 4 Players, 90 – 180 Minutes playing time, Ages 13 and up. Cloudspire scores an amazing 8.4 on Board Game Geek and is quickly climbing the rankings as a Strategy game as it cleverly combines a sandbox game with not only strategy, but randomness associated to keep players thinking creatively in order to be successful. While it is not a game you can min/max due to the randomness, the depth, drama, interplay, factions, event…well, everything is different every game which significantly contributes to replayability. Categories: Exploration, Fantasy, and Video Game Theme. Game Mechanics: Action Queue, Cooperative Game, Dice Rolling, Hexagon Grid, Modular Board, Solo / Solitaire Game, Tech Trees / Tech Tracks, Tile Placement, Turn Order: Progressive, and Variable Player Powers.

Description

Cloudspire is a 1-4 player strategy game heavily influenced by both tower defense and MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) games. Solo and Cooperative play are driven by a scenario book that chronicles the story of the game from the perspective of each individual faction. Players control one of four unique factions in a battle to destroy and steal source energy from their opponents. Send and defend against armies and minions, build towers to protect your base, and explore with your heroes in search of resources and powerful Relics to turn the tide of battle.

Taking place in the floating realm of Ankar, Cloudspire tells the story of a war to acquire a powerful and rare energy known only as “the source.” Every race has their own unique units and heroes as well as the ability to bid and draft mercenaries for hire.

Armies are placed either individually or in stacks to conceal powerful units until the last possible moments. Heroes, in the meantime are controlled individually and may join the tide of battle or choose to explore points of interest in search of numerous resources. Meanwhile, the event deck regularly changes the terms of the fight, making every wave exciting and unpredictable.

As armies and minions approach opposing bases, they’ll need to contend with Spires – powerful defense towers that can be built around the board. Fight for control of build sites and acquire new spire schematics to build an impenetrable defense and hold off the enemy. Upgrade your home base to unlock new strategies and abilities. Level up your heroes and lead your armies into battle with advanced and upgraded skills!

With a full 16-mission solo campaign, Endless Mode for solo play, eight two-player co-op missions, and up to four-player PvP, Cloudspire is game that will see your table again and again regardless of your favorite way to play or the size of your game group.

    I’m a huge fan of all Chip Theory Games, and lately Stone Valley has been my go to for acquiring the ones I wanted when others were out of stock. Playing primarily solo, this has tons of content and combines game play elements from their other games. Customer service was excellent, fast shipping, and personable. Have to thank the Solosaurus podcasts for sending me this way. Great podcast, great store for the solo gamer
