AEG is releasing their yearly Black Box. Usually these special boxes for Black Friday include a mystery assortment of games, but this year it looks like the box only has one game. AEG says the game has been in development for a decade. What game is it? A game named Phase. According to AEG:
In Phase, players take actions to bring powerful champions into the struggle to control the Nexus. These cards have a duality – good and evil, light and dark, etc. Cards “phase” from side to side as the game is played. This creates wild swings of power, allowing players to quickly shift from attack to defense and create all sorts of wahoo fun combos.
The game comes with over 300 cards and is playable for up to 5 players. By purchasing more than one box, players can customize their decks
AEG is also running a special promotion where players can create and submit their own “broken combos” and receive a special AEG Shirt to commemorate their cleverness. Rules for this promotion are going to be published on the Black Box website before Black Friday.
