Many of you have enjoyed the Tales From the Loop RPG. You've maybe even played the expansion. And you're possibly looking forward to the tv series. Well, soon, there'll be a new way to enjoy this strange world: a board game. Free League Publishing has launced a Kickstarter campaign for Tales From the Loop: The Board Game. Head over and get your pledge in now.
From the campaign:
In 1954, the government ordered the construction of the world’s largest particle accelerator. The facility was completed in 1969, located deep below the pastoral suburban countryside, outside of the big city. The local population called this marvel of technology the Loop. Over the years since it was built, strange phenomena have started to appear in the area - mysterious creatures stalking the land, machines malfunctioning in inexplicable ways.
In the Tales From the Loop - The Board Game, you take the roles of local kids and play cooperatively to investigate whatever phenomena that threaten the islands (or perhaps just the local video store), and hopefully stop them. Each day starts at school, but as soon as the bell rings you can use whatever time you have before dinner and homework to go exploring! Player actions are integrated, meaning there’s no downtime as you wait for others taking their turn. It also makes cooperating with your fellow players dynamic as you can react to things that happen in a turn and don’t have to plan it all out from the start.
At least four scenarios will be included in the base game (more can be unlocked as stretch goals), and each scenario takes approximately 90-150 minutes to complete.
The campaign's more than 2x funded with 29 days left to go.
