CHANCE YOUR FATE IN THE GREAT DALMUTI: DUNGEONS & DRAGONS CARD GAME
Celebrate the 25th Anniversary with a D&D-inspired Adaptation of the Popular Card Game of Medieval One-upmanship
RENTON, WA – August 3, 2020 – You can fall from the top of the heap to ruthless beholder-spawn in an instant – and that’s part of the fun in The Great Dalmuti: Dungeons & Dragons! To commemorate the 25th anniversary of The Great Dalmuti, Wizards of the Coast is releasing a new Dungeons & Dragons-inspired version of the classic card game. Baronesses with their highfalutin hats were turned to stone by snarky medusas, goofy jesters were chased into the castle moat by giggling gnolls, and the super snooty archbishops have all undergone the long process of ceremorphosis to become evil mind flayers. Building on the success of the award-winning card game designed by Richard Garfield, The Great Dalmuti: Dungeons & Dragons will test players’ fates and status in a fun, easy-to-learn, and fast-paced card game. The deck includes 13 cards, including the iconic Great Dalmuti, and new D&D-flavored card names accompanied by beautiful and evocative illustrations by artist Harry Conway.
In the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game, the dice may control your fate, but in The Great Dalmuti, it’s about how cleverly you play the cards you’re dealt. One round you’re polishing your royal crown, and the next you’re whacking rats in a filthy alley. Perfect for ages 8 and up and up to 8 players – it’s a gloat-filled, winner-take-all contest.
The Great Dalmuti: Dungeons & Dragons will be available everywhere in November – just in time for the holidays – and will retail for $14.99. For more information about The Great Dalmuti: Dungeons & Dragons, visit dungeonsanddragons.com.
