Okko Chronicles

Cycle of Water: Quest Into Darkness.

The original Okko game (Era of the Asagiri) was a simple little tile-based skirmish game with some lovely metal miniatures (sold separately), but this new Kickstarter-funded use of the French property by Red Joker goes all out. There’s some investigation, a natty card-based system for varying the stats and abilities of both heroes and bad guys that requires some interesting choices, and a stack of scenarios. I’ve played it once so far and enjoyed it, and the miniatures are very nice. Sadly however, the old translation problem has reared its ugly head again and the rulebook is a bit of a mess, but thankfully the designer seems to be answering everyone’s rules questions pretty quickly.

Hopefully this rules summary and reference will make things clearer for new players; it includes official answers to a few questions I had after a first play of the game.
