As much as some of us would love to just stay home all the time and absolutely never leave the house for anything, that’s not really a reality. You’ve gotta go out and get provisions. And the Queen certainly can’t just have everyone in the hive all the time, y’know? Unfortunately, while out on a mission, your group has become lost. Now you’ve got to find your way back across the nightmare landscape filled with horrible monsters and terrible ailments. That’s the story behind Godforsaken Scavengers, a new survival card game that’s up on Kickstarter.
In the game, players take on the role of survivors of an expedition gone bad. They must make their way back home through a monster-infested land. On their turn, they will pick a scavenge pile to go through. They’ll continue to reveal cards from it as long as they want, in a sort of “push-your-luck” manner. If they stop before they come across a peril card, all the revealed cards are discarded and something terrible happens to someone (or everyone) in the party. However, if you don’t scavenge enough, you’ll starve, as you have to discard cards from your hand to survive.
The game has several different scenarios you can play, ranging from cooperative to competitive, as well as a solo version.
The Kickstarter campaign is really close to funding with still 22 days left to go.
