Beautiful but needs a lot of time

What an amazing game! So beautiful and super fun - I love that other players can jump in or out as needed. Did need some video tutorials but a great game once you’re up and running.

A world to explore

A text adventure which is also a (co-op or solo) boardgame. You are navigating your battered tramp steamer through a mysterious archipelago. Choices abound, many of them potentially fatal. It will take many many hours to get through all the potential adventures in this game.

A Glorious Adventure

I played through a full campaign of Sleeping Gods with three friends over a year (with quite big gaps between sessions!). Ryan Laukat has created a fully realised, immersive world to explore and we loved it... the combat system was probably our favourite bit of game design, but there's lots of other lovely touches, including the way quests are managed and completed and the use of the map book. It's a first and foremost a game of storytelling and exploration and it really excels at that. The size and breath of the thing is quite something, I'm already looking forward to a new campaign to explore some much of what we're yet to experience!

Heavy game but SO worth it

It's a big game-get a big table. It's a a medium heavy game, but seriously it was our first heavy game and it's fantastic. The story driven adventure is rewarding and challenging. We play with two players and it works fine, I imagine it could be a little more fun with more but it doesn't need it.

GAME OVERVIEW

"Are the stars unfamiliar here?" she asked, and the sky grew suddenly dark, the star's patterns alien and exotic. "This is the Wandering Sea. The gods have brought you here, and you must wake them if you wish to return home."

In Sleeping Gods, you and up to 3 friends become Captain Sofi Odessa and her crew, lost in a strange world in 1929 on your steamship, the Manticore. You must work together to survive, exploring exotic islands, meeting new characters, and seeking out the totems of the gods so that you can return home.

Sleeping Gods is a campaign game. Each session can last as long as you want. When you are ready to take a break, you mark your progress on a journey log sheet, making it easy to return to the same place in the game the next time you play. You can play solo or with friends throughout your campaign. It's easy to swap players in and out at will. Your goal is to find at least fourteen totems hidden throughout the world. Like reading a book, you'll complete this journey one or two hours at a time, discovering new lands, stories, and challenges along the way.

Sleeping Gods is an atlas game. Each page of the atlas represents only a small portion of the world you can explore. When you reach the edge of a page and you want to continue in the same direction, you simply turn to a new page and sail onward.

Sleeping Gods is a storybook game. Each new location holds wild adventure, hidden treasures, and vivid characters. Your choices affect the characters and the plot of the game, and may help or hinder your chances of getting home!

Welcome to a vast world. Your journey starts now.
