Riot Is Making Its First Tabletop Game In Three Years

The League of Legends developer is returning to tabletop games


Riot Games, the developer of League of Legends, has announced that it is working on a new tabletop game. The game, Tellstones: King's Gambit, is based on a game played across Runeterra, the setting of their upcoming Legends of Runeterra.

Tellstones: King's Gambit is a "bluffing game" (a game that involves lying or deception) for two or four players. The rules of the game, and the pieces that are being designed for it, have not been disclosed, although the announcement suggests that it'll be "much smaller and play faster" than their first and so far only tabletop game, Mechs vs. Minions.

Riot Games' previous tabletop game was released in 2016. Riot Games has several other tabletop games in production right now, but the others remain unannounced. We're not sure when Tellstones: King's Gambit is due to release, either.
