Here is their press release:
Nauvoo Games Acquires License for The Reckoners
July 29, 2016
Today, Nauvoo Games announces the acquisition of the license to design, produce, and distribute a board game based on The Reckoners series by Brandon Sanderson.
The Reckoners series is the #1 New York Times bestselling series featuring the novels STEELHEART, FIREFIGHT, and CALAMITY. Each book hit the top of the charts upon it’s one of Brandon Sanderson’s most popular series to date. Featuring heart stopping action, laugh out loud quips, and some of the most unique superpowers, this is one of the top action-adventure young adult properties of the last few years.
The Reckoners board game, designed by Seth Van Orden and Brett Sobol, allows players to take on the roles of the novels’ protagonists and work together to save the world. In The Reckoners board game, players must overcome multiple ruthless and power-hungry ‘Epics’ – the equivalent of supervillains – that each have unique, game-impacting abilities. Players must decide how to resolve these competing priorities together to eliminate epics and ultimately win the game. How, when, and where you act will determine your victory or failure.
Consistent with Nauvoo Games’ mission, The Reckoners board game will be easy to learn, quick to capture your attention, and enjoyable to play over and over again. Experience the thrill of fast-paced action planning in The Reckoners, coming soon.

I for one look forward to learning more. If anyone is going to be at GenCon this weekend go say hello!
For Alcatraz fans the Tor/Forge blog has posted the first chapter of The Dark Talent (which is only a little over a month away from release)! Check it out here. Now those of you who subscribe to Brandon's newsletter will likely remember he shared this back in January 2015. So it is not new to everybody, but it is still a great chapter and I really can't wait to read the rest of the book.
Back in March we reported that Tor Books was releasing special limited edition Stormlight Companion for Independent Bookstore Day. Well the Tor/Forge blog just recently announced that anyone that subscribes to their newsletter will receive a free digital copy of the Companion (people who are already subscribed need to sign up again though). There really isn't anything that fans like us don't already know, but it is a handy little reference book.
Finally Stormlight 3 is over 2/3rds drafted! Woohoo!
