This War of Mine: The Board Game is a cooperative game about surviving in a war-ravaged city. In this breathtaking experience players will have to resolve many deeply emotional situations, which are provided by the unique book of scripts – an entirely new way to introduce storytelling and RPG elements into a board game. The brutal realism of This War of Mine: The Board Game is further enhanced by managing the shelter – a ruined building where the players are hiding. You will have to craft new, useful things, search through the rabble or even dig into the collapsed cellar. It is completely up to the players, how they will use their resources and what parts of the city they will explore. Will you survive the war?
Take part in unique story of a group of citizens trapped in war-torn city. The choices you will encounter will not be easy, but survival is at stake. Each playthrough will be a tale you and your friends will turn into an unforgettable and meaningful experience. Similarly to what the real situation could look like, you will start with limited information and must learn fast in order to survive. There is no need to read the manual before the game – the idea behind it is to make the experience as accessible as possible without any compromise in terms of its complexity and depth. There are no points or competitions, just those who make it until the ceasefire. Don’t think the road will be easy and clear. You are trapped in the middle of a military conflict, where moral and ethical obligations are acknowledged by very few. With your group you will manage your shelter, craft items necessary for your existence and defense, explore a vast city and risk your life scavenging for resources. Reality Impact was designed to make your each playthrough very personal and unique, it also ensures the stories come to life and the decisions you make are not trivial. Sometimes the consequences of a choice you’ve made will not directly impact the gameplay, but they will reflect back at you when you least expect it. The Reality Impact system is what links the board game with a story and while they’re merged elevates them to an emotional experience.
