A new tactical cooperative game by Tabula Games is on the cards with The Last Spell: The Board Game headed for release in 2024. While the game itself is some time away, its sturdy core concept is worth all the chatter. Inspired by the popular video game Ishtar Games, the board game seeks to bring the experience to the tabletop.

Put a Stop to Magic in the World By Surviving the Onslaught

As the latest video game board game to make an entry into the tabletop hobby, expectations of the title are high, but the publishers from Tabula Games and designers Nestore Mangone and Alessandro Veracchi are confident in the upcoming release, with plenty of components and artwork already shared online.

The title focuses on 2-4 players who will play as battle-hardened warriors who are trying to protect the mages performing the symbolic “last spell” that will do away with magic from our world once and forever. This may sound a little counter-intuitive when you have hordes of supernatural creatures trying to breach your defenses, but magic is the source of that evil as well and it has to go.

The game is played in cycles with day and night taking alternate turns and coming with their own challenges. During the daytime, the players will seek to bolster the city’s defenses and prepare for the oncoming nightly horrors. Players will similarly work on upgrading their equipment and accessing further abilities that they can use to repel the undead.

Each character will have a unique profile, with some able to cast spells, others focusing on archery, and others stills wielding powerful melee attacks. The Last Spell: The Board Game is designed as a modular experience where you can face individual scenarios or embark on a long campaign.

Endless Customization and Replayability in This Co-op Adventure

The game will also feature a varying level of difficulty making for a more challenging environment. There is plenty of customization going into the game as well, with numerous weapons and abilities available to you, guaranteeing the replayability of The Last Spell. The miniatures are beautifully sculpted, evoking the beauty of the game on the tabletop and adding more engagement to your gameplay.

To emerge victorious, you simply need to survive the oncoming onslaught. Tabula Games’ The Last Spell: Board Game is coming to Kickstarter on May 24.
