You ever have a dream that you swear was real? Like you wake up from it and have to take a moment to remember actually where you are (hopefully that place being safe in bed). It might take part of the next day to finally feel you’re back in “reality.” Also, you ever share a dream with another person? You start talking about your dream and the other person just goes, “Whoah! That happened to me, too!” Freaky, right? Well, that’s the story behind The Shared Dream, a new cooperative board game for Odam Publishing that’s up on Kickstarter.
In the game, players are characters who have woken up next to each other having shared a dream. They then see that dream start to become a reality around them. However, things aren’t quite right, as enemies start gathering all around you. You’ll have to work together to not only make it through your own Personal Reflections (specific tasks set aside for your character based on their past) but also to defeat the Nemesis at the end of the game. The base set comes with 4 scenarios and 6 different characters. Using a modular table, each game will be just a bit different from the last.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. They’re about 1/4 of the way to their goal with still 28 days to go.
