It’s the age of exploration as ships head out all over the world, filled with intrepid explorers, looking to add to the ever-growing knowledge of the Earth. But there’s all sorts of dangers out there, along with the excitement. It’s best to not just go charging off into the brush. But exploring is in your blood, and you just know that the next great discovery is going to be yours. That’s the story behind Exploriana, a new board game that’s up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
EXPLORIANA is a competitive push your luck game of exploration and discovery designed by Miles Ratcliffe of Chaos Publishing with stunningly gorgeous artwork by Richard Dearing.
The players control the fates of intrepid explorers travelling to the far off regions of the globe in search of unknown species of plants, fantastic animals, glittering treasures and incredible lost cities that have never been seen before!
Late in the 19th century vast continents open up to exploration and a wave of interest grips scientists and explorers across the globe. Fantastic animals, strange and beautiful plants, fantastic treasures and ancient sites of lost civilisations all await discovery.
Expeditions to far-off regions are always filled with peril, but the challenge is hard to resist. Brave adventurers in search of riches, scientists with a hankering for knowledge and recognition, and intrepid explorers with a burning desire to map the globe: all set out for these wondrous lands with hopes of gaining a place in the history books.
The campaign’s around 1/4 of the way to their goal with still 29 days on the clock.
