Malifaux Book 2 Cover

Rising Powers

Malifaux: Rising Powers (aka Malifaux Book 2) is now available. Rising Powers is an expansion to last year’s new tabletop game that’s been making waves since it released. Malifaux is a unique take on tabletop games that uses a card mechanic in place of dice. If you’ve never played Malifaux, I’d suggest reading the Malifaux Review first to learn about the base game.

Rising Powers expands on a few aspects of Malifaux. This new book adds a few new rules, a ton of new units, and of course more stories in the Malifaux world. While only a few new rules are added, they greatly improve on the basic gameplay. It should be noted that this is an expansion, and as such the original rules and model stats are NOT included in this book. This only includes new content.

Can a deck of cards really replace dice and still make a fun and interesting game? After playing a few games I can confidently say that yes, a tabletop game without dice can work (and work well)! Let me explain.
