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.
The company is also deep into development on League of Legends: Wild Rift, as well as a bunch of other projects, including a shooter and a fighting game. A single-player League of Legends game, Ruined King, was also announced during the 2019 Game Awards.
