Our next project is The Shipwreck Arcana, a cooperative deduction game of impending doom. We've been scurrying to put the finishing touches on it in preparation for its Kickstarter launch on Thursday, August 10, 2017. If you missed our earlier announcements and want to know what it's all about, read on!
The Shipwreck Arcana is a compact, co-operative game of deduction, evaluation, and logic. Each player's doom constantly changes as they draw numbered fate tiles from the bag. By choosing which fate to give up and which card to play it on, you can give your allies enough information to identify the fate you're holding...which is important, as the active player cannot communicate with their allies during their turn!
Each card has strict rules governing what fates can be played on it. As doom builds up, the cards themselves fade, becoming one-time powers to help the players while new cards cycle in from the deck.
Skilled play requires carefully rationing powers, hints, and cycling, while paying attention to not only where each fate was played -- but more importantly, where it wasn't.
