Becoming my go-to solo game

I’m really enjoying this at the moment. I have yet to play it as a multiplayer game (and honestly I worry it might suffer from the typical multiplayer issue with one player quarterbacking). However, I have played it a number of times solo. As a solo game it works very well; it kind of reminds me a little of One Deck Dungeon with the puzzly nature of dice-drafted combat, and the combos you can build with synergistic skills, that mitigate poor dice rolls and provide more powerful alternatives than just direct hits. A significant difference is that in ODD, once you enter combat, you know exactly what challenges you need to come. However, the use of the campfire in this game, where only a small number of enemies get revealed at a time, makes it far more challenging. I think another significant difference is that ODD is a true roguelike, whilst this isn’t: in ODD your character is always getting more powerful, and gaining new skills. In this game, you never level up or upgrade your characters. Rather, their skills are essentially their hit points, and become exhausted either through overuse (being used more than once per round), or through taking damage if you were not able to defeat all of the creatures by the end of combat. As a result there is far more of a sense of desperation, and attrition. Having to send a character to camp each time is also a gamble in who you choose; nothing worse than sending the Cleric to camp, only to have a bunch of undead turn up to the…

The Kingdom is in grave danger. Powerful enemies are conspiring to resurrect the vile and powerful Unhallowed that your party has just slain. Now you, the mighty adventurers of the land, must visit these summoning locations and defeat the hordes of creatures behind this evil plot. It falls to four mighty adventurers, each of whom has a unique set of skills, to band together once more to vanquish this evil before the Unhallowed consume the world in darkness.

In Set a Watch, a cooperative game for 1-4 players, you must clear out nine locations to stop the acolytes from breaking the seals holding back the evil Unhallowed. Every round you will visit a new location and pick an adventurer to rest and take camp actions. The rest of the party will take watch and battle a line of monsters trying to make their way into camp using your dice and unique character abilities. Manipulating the creature line is essential to solving each round’s combat puzzle. It is a battle to stay alive and keep the campfire burning! Use your wits and skill to fight for the light…or all will perish in the darkness.

 

 1-4 PLAYERS  |  45-80 MINS  |  AGES 13+
