In ancient times peasants huddled around campfires would whisper of a prophecy telling of a time when the ultimate fantasy roleplaying experience would be translated to the board gaming world. Over the ages there have been many who have claimed to be the game foretold by prophecy: Dungeon, Talisman, Heroquest, Runebound, Descent, Return of the Heroes.... the list goes on.
Now from the far off land of the Czech Republic comes the game entitled Proroctví or, in English, Prophecy, claiming to be just such a game! I just received my copy yesterday, and I predict I will try to talk a few of you into playing sometime soon.
The game centers around each player being a potential long-lost descendant of a prince, destined to rise to glory by driving out the demons and monsters who took over the land and killed the original royal family during a civil war long ago. There are already two expansions released for the game in its native land, apparently focusing on underwater adventures and dragons. Reviews so far for the game on BGG have been very positive.
