June Update - Hotfix 4 is live!



Hello friends,

Thanks again for all your reports.. we THINK we've fixed the card problem.. AGAIN!

Here they are:

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a bug with many faces that would do things like:
    • Allow players to overdraw their hand, have Glamour played and attempt to steal an invisible card, causing an NMA.
    • Allow players to overdraw their hand and then be stuck in future card draws.
    • Allow players to overdraw their hand and then when they try to burn one of those cards in Combat, it NMA's.

Known Issues
  • Commendation votes sometimes doesn't appear for all players.

Cheers again for sending through your bugs!

If you would like to report a bug, you can do so on our Steam forums or email screenshots and logs to qa[@]leagueofgeeks.com

Hello everyone!

If you didn't already know, we recently announced a Dedicated Server beta is now live. We had some issues and we've resolved a bunch so players should have less issues jumping in!

How to get into the Dedicated Server beta!
Right click Armello -> Properties -> Betas -> Select the open beta from the dropdown menu

This will download the beta version of Armello. If you're conscious of your downloads, please be mindful that changing back will cause you to redownload the base game.

Known Issues
  • Dice appear to be larger and sometimes out of place.
  • Latency affects players turns (we’re working on a fix for this!)
  • Seasons map skins may be unreliable.
  • Steam overlay invites aren’t working in Private games.
  • Summer Solstice Dice are currently not available for drops, we're workin' on it!

It’s not simply enough to play the Beta either, we need you logging bugs. So don’t forget how to report a bug!

On Windows: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\LocalLow\League of Geeks\Armello\profiles
On Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/League of Geeks/Armello/profiles

Hope you’re excited! Thanks for your efforts in advance and you will hear from us sooner rather than later.

Latest Major Update



armello.com/updates


The Road to 2.0 is underway and our fifth update on this path has landed. The June update is out and about!

Below is a summary of the major features but you can find the full announcement post here.



This update brings a long list of hugely important balance adjustments, including Heroes, signets, amulets and cards. These changes are a breeze of fresh air and refine the Armello you know and love.



Wolf Clan enthusiasts, it’s your time to rally. A whole new Novella has been added and can be picked up for free in the store.

He was the prince who would never be King. But the Rot cares little for destiny.



A subtle shimmering now indicates where the next precious Spirit Stone will appear in the coming night. If you're on the path to "cleanse" The King, keep a close eye out for the indicator and plan your moves wisely.

And a Whole Lot Under the Hood

On top of the major features mentioned above, over the course of every update we add numerous bug fixes and experience improvements, and will naturally continue to improve stability and quality of life via numerous small patches in the lead up to our next major update.

An Ever-Growing Adventure



Armello officially launched in 2015 and since then our primary goal here at League of Geeks has been to continue developing new and interesting features to progress and refine Armello's world and its intricate mechanics. By purchasing Armello now, you are purchasing years of love and care, with the knowledge that we will continue to devote our hearts and brains to improvements moving forward.

RNG Disclaimer

The best tabletop adventures are also wondrous story generators, creating those shared memories of epic adventures with friends and loved ones. In remaining true to this core inspiration, and to provide the twists and turns of any great adventure, Armello features numerous elements of chance; including drawing cards from shared decks, physics-based dice rolls, skill tests in quests, procedural map generation, dungeon auto-exploration, and random story events.

The strategy and immense depth within Armello lies in exerting your mastery of its systems in such a way that you slide the odds as far in your favour as possible - and are prepared to pivot on your strategy at any given turn.

We feel Armello has something to offer all kinds of players, however, considering the above...

  • If your blood boils at the very mention of "RNG"... Armello may not be your cup of tea.
  • If you are a player that embraces the storytelling potential of RNG or revels in exerting your mastery over its chaos, Armello is very likely to be right up your alley!

Feature List

  • Easy to Play but Hard to Master - Armello is an intuitive game, easy to pick up and experience but with deep and emergent strategy.
  • Fast & Thoughtful - Adventuring in Armello is fast-paced fun but filled with deadly tactical and politically complex decisions requiring careful forethought and planning.
  • Multiple Playable Heroes - Includes 8 playable Heroes. Each unique Hero possess a special power, stat line and Ai personality. Also heroes can be customised with Amulet and Signet Ring load-outs to match your play style or counter an opponent's strategy.
  • Dynamic Sandbox - Armello features a gorgeous dynamic world which procedurally generates a new board each and every game, complete with a dynamic quest system ensuring no two games of Armello are ever the same.
  • Turn-Based Day & Night Cycle - Armello features a fuzzy turn-based system, cycling between Day and Night phases. The fuzzy turns allow you to still play cards and do certain actions when its not your turn, and when it is you use Action Points to move around the hex board.
  • World Class Music & Audio - By Michael Allen, internationally acclaimed artist Lisa Gerrard, Stephan Schutze, Jacek Tuschewski and Kpow Audio.
  • Animated Cards - Armello features over 150 beautifully animated in-game Cards, from artists all over the world.
  • True Tabletop Feel - We've cherry-picked the best parts of the tabletop experience, like the hex-based board and our custom physics-based dice!

About This Game

Armello is a grand swashbuckling adventure that combines three styles of play; The deep tactics of card games with the rich strategy of table top board games, combined with a character role-playing system.

As a hero from one of the clans of Armello, you'll quest, scheme, hire agents, explore, vanquish monsters, cast spells and face off against other players, with one ultimate end goal in mind — storming the palace and becoming King or Queen of Armello. The Kingdom of Armello is as dangerous as it is beautiful, perils, banes and bandits hide around every corner and a spreading corruption known as the rot is leaving no creature untouched.

Armello is League of Geeks’ attempt to revolutionise digital board and card games, whilst providing players a rich world within which they can craft their own stories of epic adventure. The aim was to create a rich game full of backstabbing, close shaves, shattered alliances, ruses and empty promises - a perfect game to play online with your friends.
