Join the Liberty Patrol to defeat Pr. Skarov's evil plans.

Guardians Chronicles is a cooperative board game for 2 to 5 players, ages 14 and up.

Next stretch goals:

Here are the last Stretches to reach : the ATLANTEAN set!

It will bring Atlantean terrorists in SKAROV's base.

The tiles will show the commando ship(s). They come to Skarov to get some heavy weapons that will help them take the Throne!

Aquarion is the commando leader! He wants revenge ! he wants to be king instead of the actual king ! And SKAROV's will help him achieve that goal!

The Strike Commando are rebel Atlantean warriors escorting AQUARION.
Their goal will be to go from the ship to SKAROV's control room, take weapons crate and come back to their ship.

For the Heroes, the goal will be to take the crate !

If not played together, this stretch will add new traps, objectives goons or villains to build SKAROV's base !

The number one question:
How do I get everything?

___________________________________________________________________

One player assumes the role of the Super Villain Pr. Skarov, while the rest of the players assume the role of Superheroes, each with unique Superpowers.

Depending on the scenario, the players must achieve a certain number of objectives to attain victory, while the evil Pr. Skarov attempts to thwart their efforts.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We have tried to think about any possible issues and problems likely to arise and think we have covered our bases: our R&D team has many best-seller games under its belt, including Richard Garfield's award-winning King of Tokyo.
We have published more than 60 board games over the years, so it is our field of expertise.
However, since this is our first Kickstarter project, we are ready to crush any unforeseen problem.
The main concern with this type of project is delays in the delivery and we are doing our best to keep those under control.
