It's New Game Friday! David Wiley (Cardboard Clash) is here to tell us about the new games.
Here’s what is new this week:
- ARC: A Game About The End
- ROVE: Expansion Collection (Kickstarter Preview)
- WEB: A Game About Connections
Game of the Week: Rove (Free for this week only)
As a ROVE (Results-Oriented Versatile Explorer) you’re used to surveying the fringes of space, but now you’ve crash-landed on an unfamiliar planet. You’ll need to reconfigure your reusable modules to get to safety.
Brought to you by the designer of Skulls of Sedlec (a great little game), this one is sure to provide even more spatial puzzle delight. In it you are trying to fulfill seven missions to win, and to do that you play movement cards to shift the modules around on the board and trying to get them into the correct pattern to complete the current mission. That sounds easy, but it is far more challenging than you’d think since there are different ways to move, based on the card played. Plus there’s a way to get extra movement if you match the pattern shown when playing the card - encouraging you to plan ahead and try to line things up for a spectacular move. Add in some one-time abilities on each module and you’ve got a recipe for fun.
