A witch named Hester was hung, burned and buried under a tree. Some time later the family of Hester come to Harrow County to destroy it, but standing in their way is 18-year old Emmy who mysteriously has powers of her own.
In this asymmetric combat game, players can play as one of the Protectors, trying to rescue townsfolk, or as one of the family, trying to destroy Harrow County. You can play as a third faction - the surprise return of Emmy's twin sister, Kammi. Kammi wants to rule over Harrow County. Players activate mason jars to move their haints (undead creatures) around the hex-based board, as they try to accomplish their missions. Combat is resolved using a never-before-seen cube tower that's built into the actual box.
Finally, a third player can enter the game: Hester, the dead witch buried under the tree. She controls the roots of the tree and using the cube tower, Hester can infect haints on her roots, which causes a snake to be placed into its ear. That player can still control this haint, but now so can Hester. If Hester comes back to life, then she needs to eat the other legends to gain all her power back to win.
Harrow County: The Game of Gothic Conflict from Off the Page Games is a thematic, tactical, game of territory control and enemy elimination to determine the fate of Harrow County.
Harrow County: The Game of Gothic Conflict is designed by Jay Cormier (MIND MGMT, In the Hall of the Mountain King, Belfort, Akrotiri) and Shad Miller (Partners in Crime), with art from Tyler Crook (Eisner nominated, Harrow County comic series). It's based on the comic series of the same name, created by Cullen Bunn and Tyler Crook.
It's a 1 vs. 1 asymmetric game where players control 1 of 3 factions (Protectors, The Family, and Kammi), with each one having their own play-style and objectives. The game includes a 3rd player, the dead witch, Hester Beck, who's buried under the tree. You can even play up to 4 players with the Fair Folk Expansion.
That's right, if you get the Satchel edition, you'll also get 36 issues of Harrow County comics included as a digital download! That's the entire main storyline of Harrow County, plus the mini-series featuring the Fair Folk that make up our expansion! This is a $24 USD value if you were to buy them from Dark Horse online!
Why stop at 3 players when 4 players can play together? The Fair Folk expansion allows a player to play as the third or fourth player in any game. They can also be used in a 2 player game versus Hester!
The Fair Folk are minding their own business when someone kidnapped their queen as well as her crown and sword. The other players know where they are, but you do not.
ou have to locate them during the battles that are going on above ground. To make matters worse, you're not able to do anything on your own due to ancient Fairy rules. Instead you need to make bargains and deals with other players to help you locate the queen and her stolen items.
How they play
The Fair Folk take smaller turns after each of the 2 factions take a turn. They place a Fairy nest along with an offer in that nest on any hex on the map.
If a player takes the offer and if the Fair Folk have enough silver cubes come out of the tree, the nest stays and the other players are forced to give information about the queen's sword, crown, or the location of the queen herself.
If the Fair Folk find their queen, then they win. It's possible that 2 players can win when the Fair Folk are playing. One of the factions could get to 7 points during the same round when the Fair Folk find their queen!
Every Deluxe and Satchel edition comes with the Fair Folk expansion packed inside the box!
