It is the late 1930s and the world is in
turmoil. Humanity is on
the brink of war as imperialist nations in the Far East and Europe work
aggressively to expand their domination. The Nazis have
taken control of Germany and now spread darkness across the globe in
their hunt for powerful occult artifacts that can give them
the upper hand in the days to come. But the spirit of adventure and
freedom won’t be stamped out so easily.
Heroic adventurers from around
the world answer
the call, racing against time to hunt down ancient artifacts, explore
temples, and fight back the powers of darkness from engulfing the
world. It is a race of good versus evil and only a cunning and
agile explorer can claim the ultimate prize of… Fortune and Glory!
Fortune and Glory, The Cliffhanger Game
is a fast-paced game of high adventure, vile Villains,
edge-of-your-seat danger, and Cliffhanger pulp Movie Action. Players
travel the globe in search of ancient artifacts, fending off
danger and Villains at every turn in a quest for ultimate
reward. So strap on your adventure boots and goggles, fire
up the engines on the seaplane, and grab some extra ammo
for your revolver…the Nazis already have a head start and in
this race for Fortune and Glory, there’s no prize for second
Each player takes on the role of a pulp adventure
Hero, hunting down ancient artifacts around the world and
collecting Gear and Allies to help overcome the various
Enemies, Dangers, and Villains that stand in their way.
During each Game Round the Heroes roll off to determine
the First Player then all get to Move (starting with the First
Player), and then all get to Adventure (starting with the
First Player). There are two resources in the game, Fortune
and Glory. Heroes collect Glory by defeating Enemies and
overcoming Dangers and then spend that Glory to Heal
wounds and buy Gear and Allies. They collect Fortune by
recovering Artifacts and selling them in cities.
In the Competitive Game, players race against
one another to be the first to collect 15 Fortune. In the
Cooperative Game, all of the Heroes work together toward
a larger collective Fortune total as they race against a Vile
Organization played by the game itself.
