Your decision to excavate the ancient city of Akrotiri has borne fruit. The temples you’ve discovered during your expeditions in the Aegean have increased your standing among your peers and made you a person of renown. But they’ve also drawn the attention of some staunch competition. More and more similar expeditions are launching every day, which means resources will be even more scarce and the race to discover temples even more heated. Only the most cunning explorer who shrewdly manages their resources while manipulating the layout of the board in their favor will gain enough fame to claim victory in Akrotiri.
The castle is under siege! Endless hordes of monsters line the outer walls as they march against the citadel. Never before have the forces of darkness been so well organized; leading the troops are archmages, dragons, and fearsome legendary creatures. Only a select few heroes are able to harness the power of the magical sources and repel the invaders back from whence they came.
Bastion is a cooperative strategy game for one to four players. Taking inspiration from extremely popular tower defense video games, Bastion subjects players to an unrelenting stream of attacks by a band of vicious monsters. By channeling the sources within the city’s districts, defense towers, and citadel, players work together to defend its borders, all the while gaining useful spells from the enemies they defeat. Only by properly managing their mana, spells, and rituals will players have any hope of withstanding the onslaught.
