ANNOUNCEMENT: 3 Is A Magic Number


Portal Games announces 3 Is A Magic Number

The next Empire Pack expansion in the Imperial Settlers line.

Gliwice, Poland – April 4, 2016. Today, Portal Games announced 3 Is A Magic Number, the next expansion for the award winning Imperial Settlers. Imperial Settlers: 3 is a magic Number is the second Empire Pack for Imperial Settlers from designer Ignacy Trzewiczek. 3 Is A Magic Number introduces all new mechanics and includes cards to supplement all five Factions currently available in Imperial Settlers.

This expansion introduces a new rule: SET. This new ability allows players to score and trigger new effects each time they build 3 cards in a particular color, so called SET. With that rule drafting phase and choice of a right card to draft is even more interesting!

“I like the fact that with this expansion the draft phase gets even more interesting,” Said designer and CEO Ignacy Trzewiczek. “You are not only looking at the abilities of cards, but now you also want to collect particular colors to build sets and activate your powerful feature cards. It’s fun!”

Imperial Settlers is for 1 to 4 players, ages 12 or older and takes approximately 60 minutes to play. 3 Is A Magic Number is an expansion for Imperial Settlers and requires the Imperial Settlers base set to play. The expansion contains 13 Common cards, 50 Faction cards, and 4 Solitaire cards. 3 Is A Magic Number will be released worldwide on May 25th. MSRP will be $16.

We are bookworms. Movie maniacs. Story addicts. We grew up reading Tolkien, Howard, Herbert, Dick, Lem… We were watching Willow, Blade Runner, Never Ending Story, Robin Hood…

And yet, we don’t write books… we don’t make movies. We don’t make those things, because we make games. We make games that tell stories.
