There’s something about the concept of battling the untamed wilderness in order to stay alive which is both terrifying and alluring. Luckily, however, you don’t actually have to leave your home to pit yourself against Mother Nature, as wilderness survival board game Discover: Lands Unknown is now just $16.41 (73% off) in Amazon’s Cyber Monday sale.
Discover: Lands Unknown is designed to be played with two to four players. In it, you take the role of somebody who has just woken up in the middle of nowhere, with no recollection of how you got there. You need to solve the mystery of what happened to you, but, more importantly, you need to find a way to survive when lost so far from home and civilisation.
Published by tabletop touchstone Fantasy Flight Games, Discover can be played in several different ways. Want to cooperate with the other players, so you all have better chances of survival? Sure, you can do that – but, if you’d rather play antagonistically, that’s also an option. You can experiment with different playstyles to find out what suits you best, adding to the game’s longevity and tendency to produce a different experience every time.
If you’ve ever played the game before, be it with friends, family, or at a board game café, you may find that you have quite a different experience this time around. Every copy is unique, with a different variety of tiles, cards and tokens inside every set, generated by the game’s creators using a specially developed algorithm. It’s an unusual premise for a board game, and it means even the most seasoned tabletop veteran won’t have been faced with this particular puzzle before.
If you’re scoping out holiday season gift ideas for a board game fan in your life, then Discover: Lands Unknown could be a real contender, especially with such a stonking discount right now.
As this is a Cyber Monday deal, it’s unclear exactly how long it is going to be available for. If you want to get it at this discounted price, make sure you do it quickly, so you don’t miss out on the price drop.
