Rise of the Necromancers, is an evil strategy game for 2-5 players, successfully funded on Kickstarter in 2017. In this wickedly twisted world, each player controls a Necromancer struggling for absolute dominance.
Conquer cities, forge magic items, learn spells, explore dungeons and strive for the Academy Headmaster position... and of course deceive, sacrifice and destroy whenever necessary.
And now, to make your Necromancer more evil than ever, Dawn & Demons has arrived. This first expansion for Rise of the Necromancers gives you the ability to summon and control powerful demons.
"Dawn & Demons", the first expansion for “Rise of the Necromancers”, gives you the power to summon and command four highly detailed Demon miniatures. Now you will have two pieces on the game board, enabling your Necromancer to research the dark arts while your demon, the general of your undead army, conquers the lands in the name of its master.
Dawn & Demons also offers a CO-OP MODE where players work together to fight off the invading forces of light: the Arch Bishop and the impending dawn. In SOLO-MODE you will have to fight off the invasion all on your own. To win, all players must place their 13 Dominion Counters before the Arch Bishop calls forth the dawn and banishes all Necromancers and their minions. Cities will be reinforced by soldiers and mighty griffon knights will seek out libraries, workshops and dungeons to purge them of evil. Players will work together to share their evil plans and summon mighty demons that can crush the forces of light.

Here is a short tutorial for Dawn & Demons (Note that we are using a prototype of the game)
Sore Lose Game is a small Danish boardgames development company founded by game designers Thorbjørn Christensen and Christoffer Kyst. Since we made "Rise of the Necromancers" we have been developing our second production "Dawn & Demons".
Both projects have been done in close collaboration with the awesome MOOD Publishing, the creators of all the illustrations and miniatures for the games. Jonas Springborg, who has been our friend since childhood, has been the lead artist from the beginning.
All of us at Sore Loser Games and MOOD would like to thank our fellow Necromancers out there for your evil support, inspiration and great input. We have received so much helpful feedback on our game from you, and the Q&A-process played a big role in our edits to the Evil Rulebook for the reprint.... And of course thank you to everyone for backing, supporting and showing up at our booth at SPIEL Essen 2018.

Risks and challenges
Well... it is always perilous to be a Necromancer, not to mention to summon demons! However, we do believe that everything will run smoothly. All illustrations are done – the game is ready for print, the minis are sculpted and ready for casting – all files are ready! During our first Kickstarter project, “Rise of the Necromancers”, we learned a ton about production and shipping. This time we feel way more comfortable because we´ve been there before – we have visited the other side!
Everything has been planned with our production partner WHATZ Games, shipping with OTX and distribution with Logistico and Mail Everything. If we encounter any problems or delays, we will not hesitate to inform our backers, and we will by all evil means ensure that each and every backer gets their reward.
Thank you for putting your trust in our project!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
