Title: Cryptic Explorers
Post by: schild on August 26, 2019, 08:11:55 PM

i'm not gonna say much since I did a rulebook pass on it and helped them with a few things, but extremely aggressive 2 player squad-based skirmish thing with a pure black metal aesthetic (and that's also the only things it shares with Cave Evil, there's nowhere else its comparable). Anyway, this likely won't hit retail because basically no stores will carry it, so.

If you care about playmats and bling and way too many options, get the deluxe. If not, get the regular one. Or don't get it, I don't care, I can't make you slap the pledge button.

Backed. Deluxe. Seems great. The author says XCom is part of the inspiration, and I tried to design an XCom (Laser Squad actually) board game myelf in 1993, so you could say I've been waiting for this game for more than 25 years.
