Awesome game but many loose tiles

We love playing subterra, it's a very challenging (already on normal mode) but fun cooperative game that changes everytime through the different selection of characters and events. Depending on the number of players, you control 1-3 characters in the game. The packaging is a little disappointing since the many different tiles and items are loose in the box and easily mix together because there is only one main space for everything, had to add additional bags to sort things for easier game setup.

Much harder than we anticipated!

Well designed game but seriously difficult for us to start to enjoy playing. Playing with the rules we've died every time! So we've made a version of the rules that mean we get good game play without dying so soon in & one time we got 3 out of 4 cavers out! I'm sure once we're more familiar with it we can use the normal rules again!

Highly recommend setting time aside when you first open the game to just reading the guide & also watch videos!

A 1-6 player cooperative game of terrifying cave escape. Players take the role of amateur cavers attempting to escape an unexplored network of subterranean tunnels, before the lights flicker out or the darker things beneath the Earth catch up to them...

In Sub Terra players spend their turn exploring and revealing the tunnel system around them, attempting to survive the various perils of the cave, from floods and cave ins to gas leaks and scree. Players each have a role which gives them specialist abilities, such as an Engineer with dynamite to blast a new route or a Scout to find a route more easily.

New tiles are placed from a randomised stack of cave features, which determines whether you'll be hit with a dead end or a range of new options.

At the end of each turn, players face the reality of their situation, with a hazard card drawn to determine what danger causes them damage or cuts off their way out of the horror below.

These cards are finite, and when they run out, your torches flicker and the air feels tight, and your chance of survival diminishes quickly.

 

 1-6 PLAYERS  |  60 MINS  |  AGES 10+
