Review – Leviathan Wilds

By Andrew Borck | May 19, 2024 |

Leviathan Wilds is the first game from publisher Moon Crab Games, a publisher made up of former Fantasy Flight Games and Z-Man Games employees. In Leviathan Wilds, 1-4 players will form a deck based on a character and a class, then shuffle them together. Players will have to manage their deck carefully however, because if their draw deck (known in-game as your Grip) is ever empty, you lose your grip and fall. So is it a colossal amount of fun, or just a shadow of other card games?

Back in 2022, Free League published The One Ring, a roleplaying game set in the time between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings where players could role-play as different Hobbits going on increasingly dangerous missions from Bilbo and other well-known Tolkien characters. Later, that same game was adapted into the D&D 5th Edition, also known as 5E.
