Seems we’re getting a lot of popular video game titles coming over as tabletop games lately. There’s Bloodborne and Dark Souls. Now there’s This War of Mine. For those that might not have played This War of Mine (such as myself, since I’m not really a video game guy), just think if, one day, you woke up and found that a war was raging all around your city. You’re not a soldier (probably), but now you’ve gotta deal with surviving in a war zone.
The game’s a board game, but is designed with a distinct role-playing game feel. You’ll have to make tough moral decisions as you scrounge for food and medicine, fight off others trying to take away what little scraps you have, and look for shelter. The game is fully cooperative, seating 1-6 players.
The game’s already well above their funding goal. So it’s on to working through stretch goals for the next 19 days.
