Trapped in a drowned world, you and your allies are doomed -- or are you? Using the mystical deck of The Shipwreck Arcana and a healthy dose of logic, you can predict each others' fates and escape unscathed. Make haste, though -- there aren't many hours left...
The Shipwreck Arcana is a compact, co-operative game of deduction, evaluation, and logic, combining simple and speedy play with deep strategy. Players take turns playing tokens according to rules found on an ever-changing tableau of arcana cards in order to convey information to the rest of the group before their doom arrives. The players must collectively guess 7 fates before time runs out! A wrong guess or a fading Arcana card will advance the Hours towards dawn.
WHAT MAKES IT UNIQUE
Create and solve complex deduction puzzles. Players take turns having and deducing information. Communication mechanics encourage participation. The active player can't speak, so no single player can carry the group to victory by themselves. Plays well with any mix of veterans and newcomers. New players have the opportunity to learn and discuss strategy openly with more experienced players. Accommodates drop-in/drop-out play. Gameplay easily supports adding or removing players on the fly, without interrupting the pace of the game. Complex strategy, simple gameplay. During your turn, you draw two tokens and play one. Easy!
Includes 15 expansion cards for extra challenge, right in the box!
