Pathfinder Arena Board Game, Coming 2021

Thursday, October 22, 2020

Giochi Uniti has announced it will release Pathfinder Arena, a new board game set in the Pathfinder roleplaying game’s fantasy fiction Age of Lost Omens setting. The game will be available through a crowdfunding campaign in 2021.

Pathfinder Arena is a competitive strategy game divided into four stages of challenges between monsters and heroes. In each stage, the number and power of monsters increase, while heroes level up and gather resources to gain new skills, magic spells, equipment, and the deities’ favor.

The monsters summoned in the labyrinth never leave their spot, but the labyrinth shape is dynamic and players can change it by moving the board’s tile. Monsters can then be used to attack other players: there will be only one winner.

Watch a live-play of the game at 9 pm in Rome/ 12 noon, Pacific, on Saturday, October 24 at @GiochiUniti on Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook.

Considering they are doing lot of promotion in English, I'd bet they will speak the best English they can*.

Looks very nice. Hopefully it will be interesting and fun to play.


Sounds interesting. Can't wait for more information.

English (and I think Italian since they are Italians)


Yay for Giochi Uniti! It's nice to see something new like this to come from my native country!

Has a cooperative play version of the game been considered, i.e., just like Pathfinder?


I’m all for new products in the PF world.

And maybe even make it card-driven! In fact, there is just that game and it is even Paizo published (not licensed). Pathfinder Adventure Card Game

The picture above is different from the home page thumbnail of this, but when I saw the thumbnail, I immediately thought:

Curios what scale the minis will be in; if they are similar to the PF Deep Cuts minis, they could be useful for several games.

As for the game itself, there are a lot of board games out there; have to see what they come up with.

I still have HeroQuest and play it, but there have been a lot of dungeoncrawler board games since then. HeroQuest, I expect, funded mostly on nostalgia rather than being competitive with more modern competition.

My first reaction is that this sounds like a PF version of the old Dungeon! boardgame....which while nostalgic wasn't really that deep or good of a game. Hopefully this is more than that, but the description isn't doing it a lot of favors.

Any date yet besides 2021, or is it still to be determined?


Is this going to be reading-heavy game? I have freinds that aren't English speakers.

Humbly,

Watched the live play. Game has potential but would like to know what will be in the plans to make it so it isn't repetitive.

4 players, pvp in an arena. You can change the layout of the arena using your actions, attack other players and use enemies to attack players. Goal is to score as many points as possible. Will make it a strategy game in the end.
