B&B Games Studio have now hit Kickstarter with their new alternative history board game full of undersea adventures, The Refuge: Terror From The Deep.

The Refuge Terror From The Deep #1

The Refuge: Terror From The Deep is a game which can be played solo or with five other divers. With a game-time of between twenty and forty minutes, this means that you could even dive in and play a few games of this if things go array a few times!

The Refuge Terror From The Deep #2

There are two game modes included within the box. In the first of these two-to-six players will get stuck into a competitive dive where you're racing to your escape pods. You are trying to make sure that you get to escape whilst your 'friends' get eaten by the dangerous Kraken down in the depths.

You can also play with between one-to-four players in a cooperative dive. You will need to solve constantly changing objectives before the Kraken overwhelms you. This narrative-driven puzzle adds more twists and turns into tentacle-filled gameplay.

Each of the diver characters has their own abilities to draw on so each time you play you should get a slightly different experience too.

The Refuge Terror From The Deep #3

You can download the Competitive Dive Rulebook and the Cooperative Dive Rulebook from their Kickstarter page right now so that you can get a handle on the game before you put in a pledge.

I really like the idea of having a game which can be played in multiple ways, allowing you to get a lot more bang from your buck when the game arrives on your tabletop. Additionally, it looks like many of the stretch goals they have been working towards are geared up for making the game itself a nicer product rather than just bolting on loads and loads of expansions.

What do you make of this one?
