A hero of royal blood, arrayed in the armour of the Ancient Kings, shall seat himself upon the throne and end these days of darkness.

Does the blood of the Ancient Kings flow in you veins? Do you have the power to wrest the Artifacts from the Astral Planes and become our King? There is only one way to find out...

Prophecy is a games for 2 to 5 players. Each player chooses a character such as the stoic ranger, the wise druid, the noble paladin or any other of the ten different characters and enters a world of brigands, thieves, demons, and undead. But there are also friendly denizens whom you can encounter, skills you can learn, ways to improve yourself physically and mentally, items you can buy or find, and wondrous treasure you can discover. When you are strong enough, you must enter the Astral Planes and fight the guardians for the most powerful objects in the game - the Ancient Artifacts. But you are not the only player with such ambitions. Only one can become King and fulfill the Prophecy.

The world of Prophecy is dynamic: creatures lurk in the wilderness, merchants buy and sell rare items, and guilds train brave adventurers. You decide where to go and whether to travel on foot, on horse-back, by boat, or by magic portal. Only the clever tactics - and with the help of your character's skills and magical powers - will you be able to reach the most important places before your opponents do.

Prepare yourself. The adventure awaits.

Reviews Review Game

Review
This Talisman-esque game is great fun to play as you try to improve the skills of your hero to defeat the Guardians and gain their artefacts.

Players move around the board to meet denizens in the various locations and gain experience or weapons from them. You can trade in your experience at the 5 guilds in the game to train in new abilities, such as +1 combat.

Unlike Talisman, you have control over your movement. You can move one square left or right for free, or spend 1 gold to hire a horse and move two squares. If you are in a port, you can spend 1 gold to travel to nearby ports. If you are in a square with a magic portal you can spend two gold to travel to any other square with a magic portal. This gives you a certain amount of freedom when moving around the board. Combat is done against Strength or Will and losing a battle loses you 1 point in whichever you fought with. These can be regained to bring your strength or will back up. Evenyually you become strong enough to take on the Guardians. There are five sets of these, 2 guardians each guard an artefact and when these are taken the players with artefacts battle it out in a final showdown to gain all the artefacts.

The game is a lot of fun to play if you don't mind the randomness of essentially a card game. There is planty of choice here and this is a good roleplaying card/boardgame.
