Great expansion

Bring a new ressource and change the victory condition to 13 points. Interesting new mages as well, would definitely recommend.

Good expansion

Nice expansion. Adds more cards and a new essence (pearls). Doesn't change the game greatly, but adds in some good variety, which makes it more interesting. Very worth getting if you like the base game.

Nice expansion but not perfect

Like the first expansion this one is designed to fit in the original base game box, so you can discard the expansion box. The expansion just adds components (in particualr a new essence, pearl) rather than changing the dynamics of the game.

The target has changed from 10 to 13, but this could be just 13 pearls. As such having the Windup man in your hand could mean a fairly easy, if a little boring, victory route.

OVERVIEW

On a wild coast, a seafaring mage prepares to dive to a magical pearl bed in search of a pearl of power. Meanwhile, a dragon tamer travels to Blood Isle to seek an ancient dragon.

Res Arcana: Perlae Imperii, the second expansion for Res Arcana, adds a new essence type — pearls — to aid mages in creating powerful artifacts in their quest for mystical domination. As their purity is coveted by all, pearls of power both add versatility to existing strategies and open up new paths to victory.

 2-5 PLAYERS  |  20-60 MINS  |  AGES 12+
