Armello is a grand swashbuckling adventure that combines three styles of play The deep tactics of card games with the rich strategy of table top board games, combined with a character role-playing system. As a hero from one of the clans of Armello, you'll quest, scheme, hire agents, explore, vanquish monsters, cast spells and face off against other players, with one ultimate end goal in mind — storming the palace and becoming King or Queen of Armello. The Kingdom of Armello is as dangerous as it is beautiful, perils, banes and bandits hide around every corner and a spreading corruption known as the Rot is leaving no creature untouched.

It has not one, not two, not three but FOUR playable rabbits and they come in different flavours:
Amber: The heroine of our story, likes to explore dungeons
Elyssia: Builds walls
Barnaby: A pack rat but bunny
Hargrave: Bun with the gun
So overall a great game if you like rabbits.

With the announcement of Armello's final update, I look back fondly on this title. One of the earliest games to prove that an adventure boardgame in the videogame space can work very well, and this is a titan of that genre. The art and music are fantastic, the characters are all vibrant and have a ton of personality (I'd love to see a cartoon series about them). A wonderful balance between strategy and RNG, multiple ways to win, and a good amount of unlockable cosmetics in the form of really cool dice. A treasure for any boardgame fan, especially of the furry persuasion.

Armello presents itself beautifully with a dark medieval fantasy setting and lets you play as a wide variety of anthropomorphic animals (what you may call furries). It is in other words already predisposed to be of my liking..
It is at the core the very definition of a board game presented as a videogame and if there ever was a board game version of this I have a nagging feeling it wouldn’t be as good as this version.. Basically the uncanny alley of board games.. The gameplay is simply gathering the most influence or assassinate (or cure) the king, if you imagine Game of Thrones with a furry theme you are pretty close..
The artwork is phenomenal, the music great and the atmosphere is absolutely amazing. If you have any interest in a quite mellow yet highly addictive interactive board game, look no further. Armello delivers a great experience but is still after all these years a bit too pricey. Wait until sale then get it all!

A fantastic turn-based board game in a fairy tale setting......got my hands on it here.
At the beginning you play a kind of tutorial (called "prologue" in the game) to familiarize yourself with the great characters and numerous game elements. Reading is really important here, as is developing strategies on your own.
The game is approved for ages 6 and up, but it really isn't "child's play"!
As an adult, I also had to invest a certain amount of time to get used to this board game.
Of course you learn something new from round to round and what seemed confusing and incomprehensible at the beginning becomes more and more familiar.
To be honest, the fun of the game only developed after several rounds, even if the great graphics and the soundtrack were already convincing!
There is no "story mode" or anything like that, you just play a normal game, always with the same goal:
"The sick king who is terrorizing the land must be overthrown!"
Of course, the structure of the playing field varies from game to game, otherwise it would be boring.
The course of the game is always different, since many methods (trickery or alliance) can lead to the goal!
A game can take up to 45 minutes, which you don't really notice!
Unfortunately, the multiplayer mode can only be played online!!!
- A good and complex game for "in between", which challenges the "gray cells" and certainly does not get boring that quickly!
- tiny screen texts
- no offline multiplayer mode
Since the fun clearly predominates, go for it and buy Armello!!!
