There is a world beyond where color is a gift, not a given. Once a generation, darkness comes and drains the spectrum, washing the world in shadows. Once a generation, a chosen few are sent into the black to reclaim the light and return color to the land.

You have eight days to gather companions and collect shards of light. The journey will be arduous, BUT with careful plans... and a little luck, you could become a legend!

Glow is a dice driven card and board game. The success of your adventure will be measured by creating combinations of dice to trigger your companions' abilities and travel across the land.

Listen in to explore this playable storybook and learn why it has earned our Spiel of Approval.
