“A wonderfully plucky exercise in territory control...landscaping, and rampaging bears.”
- Tom Chick, Quarter to Three
“...Deceptive in its complexity with enough strategic diversity to keep you coming back for more.”
“...Manages to nail that rare mantra of ‘easy to play, difficult to master’ with verve.”
“...A challenging strategy game. But most importantly, it's fun.”
“Overall 4/5: Definitely check this game out!”
Welcome to the Realm of Six Seasons, where the predictable cycle of nature's seasons has turned constantly since time began. But now, something is wrong.
A bright Summer's day ends in a snowy Winter's eve. The next morning brings a burst of colorful Autumn leaves and even that is followed by a surprising deluge of Springtime rains. Something (or someone) is tampering with the precious Seasons, making a complete mess of the Realm.
The Druids of the Esoteric Orders have long fostered this fertile landscape and tended to this delicate mystical balance. And it is up to Warren, a young druid fresh from his Esoteric Training, to discover what is causing this disastrous mixing of Seasons.
Your Challenge Awaits
A Druid's Duel is a fast-paced turn-based strategy game set in a world of Celtic lore where players can create and destroy the board by harnessing the power of nature.
A Realm of Endless Discovery
Looks can be deceiving: With a game board that changes based on players' actions, and units that each have powerful animal abilities, you'll need to stay focused and never let your guard down.
A multitude of options: Whether it's the single player story told across more than 130 levels, local play or online play for up to 4 players, there's enough variety for new and experienced players.
Nothing is random in A Druid's Duel. A simple set of rules governs the board, allowing the game to be learned quickly, with various difficulty settings to match your current ability. But at its highest difficulty expect to spend months mastering the nuances that manipulating the board can create.
Protector of the Way
Guardians are the protectors of your sacred land. Each Guardian is equipped with a sturdy spear in times of trouble, hewn from an ancient oak tree. While they are simple servants, Guardians can be dangerous in groups and will venture far into the unknown if needed.
Silent and driven, The Wolf can quickly gather land or to slip past enemy lines. Wolves are most dangerous in packs, and often the game can be had by rapidly capturing land or distant Relics from a weakened opponent.
Druid Wind Rider
Loners by nature, the fearless Wind Rider delves deep into the wilder lands in search of his quarry. Wind Riders are brave scouts and wondrous marksmen who attack only from a safe distance. Beware, however, he is vulnerable in close quarters.
A powerful and versatile animal form, the Eagle can help to expand behind enemy lines, reach disconnected land masses or attack distant enemies. Sacrificing a Wind Rider/Eagle can be a good way to get rid of powerful foes.
Snarlclaw Druids are fierce soldiers for your Circle. Strength and endurance are combined with untamed ferocity in this one-druid wrecking machine.
The Bear is ferocity incarnate. In this form, a druid becomes a steamroller of unstoppable power, trampling foes and covering great distances.
Indomitable Spiritual Leader
The Waywalker derives his powers from the primal force of Mana. He is at one with your land, and uses ancient rites to bend it to his will. Use his skills to master the landscape to the detriment of your foes.
Ancient and wise, The Turtle can protect himself and others by blocking crucial pathways. His thick shell is impervious to even the fiercest of attacks.
Only you can find the Six Season Stones and restore order to the Realm!
