In Glow, you are an adventurer who builds their company by recruiting a new traveling companion each turn, trying to combine their powers as best as possible. You will roll the dice to activate the advantages that your companions bring you...or their disadvantages. Gather many slivers of light to dispel the darkness, restore the colors, travel the land to reach landmarks, and (yes) score points.
Glow is a tactical fantasy game about dice rolling, card drafting, push your luck and set collection. The idea is to draft the companion cards considering their abilities and how they will work together, as well as considering which dice they will give for the round. After the draft phase, the dice are rolled, and the abilities are triggered: for good or bad. Then players can move on the board towards spots that are more valuable. After 8 rounds, the person with the most points will be the winner!
There are card-drafting, dice-rolling, and combinations. The game contains a lot of colorful dice, and two game boards for two different gaming experiences. You have also to count on luck sometimes, but be attentive to your card combinations, too.
