In January, Riot said that its second tabletop game (and the first since 2016’s Mechs vs Minions) would be something called Tellstones: King’s Gambit. During a livestreamed update today, vice president of IP and Entertainment Greg Street finally revealed a little bit of what the game is all about.

Tellstones looks a bit like the shell game, perhaps with a head-to-head competitive element, as players try to guess which symbols are hidden under a row of stones. Part of the game’s fiction is that it exists within the League of Legends universe, Street explained, kind of like their version of chess or mancala (or maybe Gwent). It’s also meant to be a faster, more pick-up-and-play kind of game than the complex, parts-laden Mechs vs Minions, with matches expected to last just 10-20 minutes.
