It's back! After selling out earlier this year, this second edition of Paupers' Ladder brings the game back with lots of new cards, features, refinements and general tweaks and fiddles.

With your Pauper and faithful Bird companion, set out again on your journey to learn Virtues across the wild realms of Brighthelm. Battle with a huge variety of creatures, gather ingredients to craft powerful recipes and complete all manner of quests for the goodfolk of Brighthelm's city regions. 

Along with the other new features in the game, you can now choose to play in Survival mode, where you can be injured in combat. Take too many hits and it's off to the city healer with you!


Available now to pre order, I'm expecting Paupers' Ladder to be ready and on the shelves by October 2024.
