Musketeers in Germany

Like every year, Ystari will attend the great international fair in Essen, Germany. The fair will take place in October, from the 21st to the 24th. You can find us in Hall 12.

We will present our new game Mousquetaires du Roy. Playable by up to 5 players (and soon, by 6 players), it opposes Milady and the musketeers, who play in a cooperative way. The game ends with the victory of one of the two sides. True to the fiction written by Alexandre Dumas in the 19th century, the game provides total immersion in a whirlwind of swashbuckling adventures as well as struggles for political influence, not to mention a few love affairs…

Specifically, Milady (with her bodyguard) moves secretly on one of the boards and raises events by playing cards. For example, she attempts to kidnap the young Constance who is on the board representing Paris. The musketeers can then perform several actions, playing in the order of their choice on the boards: they may move, draw, exchange and play cards to solve challenges, but also face fighters with the dice, including Milady’s terrible bodyguard when a musketeer is on the same board as the schemer. Our heroes can also be equipped to become more efficient, D’Artagnan may even learn a second secret maneuver that affects his dice rolls to make him a formidable duelist. To win the game, the musketeers must return the Queen’s jewels (4 successive boards) without neglecting other emergencies triggered by Milady, in particular the siege of La Rochelle.

Fine fierce fighting ahead!
