The Dark Titan Second Edition Castle Panic Expansion Now on Sale with Fresh Art, Heavier Card Stock Plus Rules Updates! Engines of War Second Edition Coming 3/22
Austin, TX (March 6, 2023) – Friends don’t let friends fight monsters alone, especially when Agranok, aka The Dark Titan, brings his army to your tabletop board game. The Dark Titan ($19.95) is now in its Second Edition, a great expansion to the award-winning Castle Panic base game. With new artwork, heavier card stock and a few rules updates, players can get reinforcements before the monsters lay siege to their castle! Answer the call and bring fun home.
In addition to Agranok, players will discover the Dark Sorceress, Elite Monsters, and a Boom Troll. But players ages 8 and up need not panic as game maker Fireside Games introduces the Cavalier, Boiling Oil, and Support Tokens, such as the Supply Wagon!
“The Dark Titan extends the social experience of Castle Panic,” explains Justin De Witt, Chief Creative Officer of Fireside Games, “and helps families and board game groups bond. As you work together to strategize how to defeat the 8-point Monster, you will enjoy getting to know the other players.”
This is a game to play again and again suggests De Witt. “With five different levels of play for Agranok, new Castle cards, 17 new Monsters, new Support tokens, and a Cavalier with new in-game rules, players will have new fun exploring this expansion every game.”
Consumers who purchased The Dark Titan expansion at amazon.com whole-heartedly agree:
“A great addition to an already great game. I love the adaptability of the Castle Panic line… yes, it gives you rules, but you can always take out or add monsters to make the game easier or more challenging. They give you a great base game and fun expansions – and you can make it what you want.”
“This expansion adds tokens which represent friendly forces and if they make it all the way to the castle, players get bonuses. There is also a movable piece which can be used to attack monsters in addition to castle and wizard cards. New monsters are included, and there are now Elite monsters which you need to roll the die to see if you hit or miss them. The main component, the new boss monster, is an 8 hit point monster and has 5 cards with varying difficulties and powers. Adds a lot more value to the game, and I recommend it.”
The Dark Titan builds on the players’ knowledge of the base board game Castle Panic. In this expansion, players might adjust Agranok’s strength to match players’ abilities and to customize the play experience. The new Monsters, cards, and mechanics can be learned in just minutes, but the expansion offers depth to remain exciting for years to come. Other expansions provide enhanced experiences as well.
