Imagine yourself in a very toxic place with countless poisons, acids, and lethal gases. Also, add to this environment beasts that are extremely resistant. Welcome to the world of The Plagues, an expansion pack for The Wilderness, a place only for the boldest of survivors.
Two more survivors, two more beasts, an additional deck with new themed items, and a new mechanic that expand your experience in the world of The Wilderness.
Hi. I am Julio from Boardgame Adventures INC., the creator of The Wilderness.
The Wilderness campaign on Kickstarter will start in early February. We will define the exact date soon. For those who are curious about the game, here comes a brief:
The Wilderness Board Game takes place in a dystopian world. Animals have evolved into giant ferocious beasts. They took the cities and turned them into ruins. Now, these lethal beasts are an immense threat to humankind. Players assume the role of survivors and will have to face these beasts as they complete several missions and ensure the survival of the few humans that have last.
It is a fantasy cooperative game for 1 to 6 players, ages 14 and up. It is a Boss Battler game with features of the Dungeon Crawler genre. Each quest lasts 60-120 minutes.
What is inside?
The core box comes with 40 high-quality plastic miniatures – 10 large beasts miniatures, six playable Survivors Miniatures, and 24 Wolves Miniatures of 3 types. It also features 295 cards, nine double-sided tiles, many tokens, and stunning artwork. In addition to the main box, the game has two expansions with two more beasts, two more survivors, and additional mechanics that create new challenges for players.
In The Wilderness, players must achieve the Quest goals and defeat the Beast without letting any Survivor dies to win the game. The game flows in n turns with 3 phases until victory or defeat:
1 - Survivors’ phase:
Each Survivor can use up to four actions to explore the Ruins: search for Supplies, trade Gear, upgrade their Weapons, fight The Wolf Pack, deal with the Beast, and accomplish other tasks to achieve their objectives.
Every Survivor has a unique skill and a combination of two classes of six: Guardians, Explorers, Leaders, Shooters, Assassins, and Healers. Each Class has its role on the team, changing the gameplay and creating a unique and exclusive experience for each Survivor. Survivors can learn new skills from their Skill trees as they level up.
2 – Wolves’ phase
Wolves track Survivors. Each moves toward a closer Survivor and eventually attacks. Then, new wolves spawn in zones called Nests.
3 – Beast’s phase
The Beast tracks and attacks the Survivors three times. Every Beast has a unique personality and behaves differently from each other. Their attacks are customized based on their exclusive skills and AI cards system.
The wilderness will be published in early February on Kickstarter.
