Adventure Games

Adventure Games for the whole Family!

In an adventure board game, the player is represented by a single token, which is how the player interacts with the world represented in the game board. However, unlike simple roll-and-move games like Ludo or Monopoly, the different players' tokens are not identical; they have a number of attributes, and what a player is capable of doing is related to those attributes. This may be abstract (the standard colored pawns, but the player has a card telling him what he can do), or explicit (the playing piece is a representation of, say, a warrior), the point is each player has different abilities. In addition, these abilities may change over the course of the game, either by gaining items, or some sort of experience level. In some cases, the person may well be representing a particular character in the context of the game.

This gives these games many of the traits associated with role-playing games, in some cases having a strong resemblance to early combat-heavy RPGs. Despite this, they remain very distinctly board games, with the board controlling the flow of the game and representing physical locations.

Amazonas $37.95

It's the 19th Century, and you have come to the lush tropical jungles of the Amazon in search of rare plants and animals. You must explore the twisting paths and waterways, leading your expedition from one village to another.

Each village offers an opportunity to establish a new outpost. But beware -- the Amazon is not for the timid! Fearsome crocodiles lurk in the tepid waters of the rivers, and hungry jaguars stalk the twilight paths. Do not shy from such dangers too long, for the cost to build a new outpost increases the longer it takes you to reach each new village.

Your funds are very limited, so speed is essential. Your sponsor has also sent you a secret directive. You must fulfill the demands of this special mission, or you will lose much of your newly earned fame!

Can you face the dangers of an unknown jungle and earn fame and recognition? Or will another explorer surpass you on the way to glory? Find out when you enter the land of the Amazon!

In Mermaid Rain, you explore the ocean and gather as many treasures as possible to gain more victory points than other players by using cards and ocean-current tiles. Roughly speaking, the procedure of the play can be divided into two phases: the "surf-predicting" phase and the "surf-riding" phase. In the "surf-predicting" phase of each round, you make melds by using the cards in your hand and gain an ocean-current tile. In the "surf-riding" phase of each round, you place the ocean-current tile on the board, move your pawn by using card(s) from your hand, and gather treasures. To win the game, you have to check cautiously the balance of the cards in your hand: which card(s) to use in "surf-predicting" phases and which in "surf-riding" phase.
