Analog Evolution Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to fund their new cooperative board game, Westerly.
Reminds me of playing Oregon Trail in grade school…
From the campaign:
Westerly is a cooperative game for up to six players. In it you will face countless perils as you try to guide your party through the wilds of the untamed American frontier to your ultimate goal, California. It’s going to take skill, daring and just a touch of luck to get everyone there in one piece.
Each player in your party will be assuming the identity of one of nearly forty characters to begin your journey. Each character comes with his or her own strengths and weaknesses, so forming a well rounded bunch will certainly help your chances of survival. As a group you will have to decide on how much money to spend on supplies, items and oxen before setting off down the trail. Chose wisely, ’cause there’s no turning back once you get going, and opportunities to replenish your needs are random at best.
