The Reckoners

Based on the book series by Brandon Sanderson, The Reckoners is a co-operative board game that allows 1-6 players to take on the roles of the novels’ protagonists and work together to save the city of Newcago. Players must defeat Steelheart and other ruthless ‘Epics’ – the equivalent of supervillains – that each have unique, game-impacting abilities. Players must cooperate and decide how to resolve these competing priorities to eliminate Epics, save Newcago, and ultimately win the game. How, when, and where players act will determine victory or failure.
