Description:

Lovingly nicknamed Harry Potter and the Game of Thrones, Argent is a worker placement engine-builder with heavy interaction, cutthroat dynamics, and tons of variety & replayability.

The time has come for the selection of a new Chancellor at Argent University of Magic, and you are among the likely candidates for the job. Gather your apprentices, ready your spellbook, and build your influence, while secretly discovering and competing over the votes of a limited Consortium of influential board members. Only the one who is able to fulfill the most criteria will claim the title of most influential mage in the World of Indines!

Argent: The Consortium is a cutthroat worker-placement/engine-building game of manipulation and secrecy in which the criteria for victory are secret and the capabilities of your opponents are constantly changing. You'll need to outwit the other candidates, use your spells at the right moment, and choose the correct apprentices to manage your plan.

Do you think Agricola needs more backstabbing? Would Stone Age be more fun if your cave-meeples had their own magical powers? Do you seek a worker-placement game that lets you build an absolutely bonkers engine that everyone else will find ridiculously broken? This may be the game for you!
