Hi board game geeks! My name’s Doddy and I’m here to help you ‘kickstart’ your game collection by navigating the choppy waters of crowdfunding campaigns! I’ll be looking at which deserve your gold and which you should avoid like an orc encampment! On today’s edition we’ll be looking at Etherfields by Awaken Realms.
It’s time to enter the dreamworld, obviously not by choice. Your body has been taken, your memory is broken and scattered. You’re not alone, yet trust’s an issue. Jump into this 1-4 player game and find your story. There are entities to meet and players to compete with. Be quick as something is devouring this dream you’re in.
Dive into this dungeon crawler/ Dream crawler boardgame where you will be supporting each other in a kind of cooperative and solo experience. Every choice that is made will send ripples through the dream world. Your wildest dreams perhaps will come to light or will it become a nightmare?
This game will test your emotional state, your logic, and light a flame under intuition and deduction. Develop your character from scratch with the aid of an advanced deck building system. When you’re ready it’s time to go through the Dream world and investigate each chosen location.
So your body is missing, all around you is broken memories. You’re trying to piece together your story. By collecting these cards you try to complete your story. The more skills you have the better chance you have but, there are curses will become a hinderance.
Then there’s combat. Now normally you kill something and it remains dead. However, this is the dreamworld and things don’t remain dead. So hitting your way through may not be the best option as when they return they will not be happy, the same, more unique.
Think outside the box in this fantastic game. Help one another but, make sure it benefits you as well. Gain skills, avoid curses, maybe throw a few lies here and there to get what you want. Try to understand the intentions of the entities you meet. I mean nothing ‘bad’ can come from a random encounter… right??
