Court Of The Dead: Mourners Call is an highly competitive board game that calls upon players to balance cooperative needs against their own ulterior motives. Mourners (Players) are allied with Death. They harvest souls and fight Celestials in a strategic battle to dominate the Underworld Capital city of Illriness in an attempt to restore balance between the warring factions of Heaven and Hell. Each mourner pledges allegiance to one of the 3 factions of the dead - Bone, Flesh or Spirit, and will select their Hidden Ulterior Motive.
Court Of The Dead: Mourners Call perfectly incorporates several mechanics to create a thoroughly atmospheric, immersive and engaging game to the sweet, or bitter, end. In game currency is central to a clever bidding mechanic where mourners need to harmonise in order to best achieve their own objectives. The various combinations of set up cards and the bidding mechanism ensures plenty of replayability.
The RRP of Kickstarter editions, if and when they reach retail, is driven up by all the add ons. That being said, the aforementioned replayability and 70 beautifully detailed miniatures coupled with the additional items - metal tokens, trackers, marble dice and choice of box skin (1 of the 3 factions) we think you definitely get your money's worth.
