A Study In Emerald Board Game
The very first board game based on the work of Neil Gaiman!
‘A Study in Emerald’ the board game takes as its inspiration the world conjured up by Neil Gaiman in the award winning short story. This is an alternative reality where fiction has become fact. The Old Ones have not only returned but have been ruling the earth for centuries. Opposition is rising, though, as humanity fights between itself to decide its future. Sherlock Holmes and Professor Moriaty are but two figures caught in this struggle.
Martin Wallace has concocted possibly his most subtle, complex, and downright evil design yet. If you know what you’re doing after the third game then you have not understood the rules!
The game takes an original slant on the deck-building mechanic. Instead of buying the cards you want you have to bid for them with influence. The range of cards is massive, with only a few duplicates. You can employ secret agents to carry out your plans, or quietly subvert a city to your control, call up monsters from other dimensions to destroy your enemies, or raise an army of zombies. No two games will ever be the same.
This game will initially only be available via Kickstarter or direct Treefrog Games, it will not be going into general distribution. We may or may not publish a second edition of the game for general distribution, but if we do the earliest you are likely to see it is 2015.
I really wish them luck. I hope they’ll make their target, because I do want to play this. (Check out the video, too.)
