Avast, ye scurvy lumps ‘o lard, and read on if ye know what’s good for ye! The new, massive boxed game of fantasy sea battles from Games Workshop releases this Saturday, and Gamescape’s going to be showing it off all day long. You can stop in and check it out anytime 1-6pm, and our deckhands will make sure you have your sea legs under you for your very first battle on the tumultuous waves of the Old World’s salty seas.
Dreadfleet is extremely limited and will most certainly sell out soon after the release, so make sure to let us know that you want one if you haven’t already and we’ll put your name on a copy as soon as it arrives at the store. A number of them are already spoken for, and the hype around this game is impressive, even days before its release. We’re very excited to be able to show our customers an open box and how the mechanics of Dreadfleet work. Come join the boarding party!
Dreadfleet First Look & Demo
Saturday, October 1st 1-6pm
Where: Gamescape North, San Rafael
Dreadfleet is a boxed game for two (or more) players that includes everything you need to make war on the turbulent seas of the Warhammer world. At your command are two fleets of ships – the Dreadfleet led by the Vampire Count Noctilus, aboard his gargantuan sea-hulk the Bloody Reaver; and the Grand Alliance commanded by the Pirate Captain Jaego Roth, who recently stole the Heldenhammer- the pride of the Imperial Fleet, and one of the largest galleons to ever sail the high seas.
As your ships engage in furious battle, it’s down to you, the fleet captain, to make important split-second decisions. Do you bring all guns to bear on the closest enemy warship, or do you sail into position for a furious broadside? What happens when the warship catches fire, or worse, the powder kegs ignite? Exactly how much punishment can your warship take before it sinks without a trace? Are those Undead seagulls or flying piranha fish? And, when all else fails, do you have the courage to ram your foe, board their ship, and engage them in a duel to the death?
