A magical fantasy adventure board game for 1-4 players

In 7 Moons you play royal emissaries sent out by your monarch into the kingdom of Dragon Reach to ready your city for war against the approaching Shadow Army. How will you raise enough gold to strengthen your city’s defences and recruit allies to fight with you? Will you trade resources on the volatile market, hoping for a healthy profit? Will you risk venturing into the lawless wilderness for its magical riches? Or will you embark on a quest in aid of others to earn your gold?

What kind of game is 7 Moons?

7 Moons is an easy to learn, fun to play game of strategy, acquisition and adventure in a mythical, magical land. We’ve designed it to have wide appeal, good for a Sunday post-roast family gathering or for more experienced gamers looking for some light adventuring, with enough challenges to test your gaming chops. Gameplay includes a nice mix of mechanics – trading, questing, journeying, building and combat – to keep things interesting and give players plenty of choice as to how their adventure plays out. The Shadow Army is a tough opponent at the end of the game, but if you’ve planned and played well, your city will be fine. Probably. Possibly.

  1. Lucy

    Only 7 moons until impending doom!! I love the way the game speeds up towards the end, it has a forward momentum. I also like the balance between wanting to win and stay alive, but also needing the other players to be doing moderately well as you need to work both alone and as a team at the end. Working just for yourself is not always the best play. The coins are particularly lovely.

  2. Mike

    This is a great game, easy to play, yet complex enough to keep your interest as it comes to a head. Tactics, chance and teamplay all count as you have to get yourself ready for the exciting endgame. Well done Gunpowder!

  3. Jason

    Really enjoyed playing this as one of the playtesters. It’s simple enough for beginners but has enough depth for experienced gamers. Love the gold coins too!
