Greater Than Games has a title which sounds perfect for Halloween but, unfortunately, it won’t be for this October 31st. Regardless, the interesting looking Legends of Sleepy Hollow has surpassed it’s funding goal so gamers will eventually get to cooperate together as they explore the mysterious disappearance Ichabod Crane. The title promises plenty of chills and thrills throughout eight chapters of the tale. You can secure a copy of Legends of Sleepy Hollow at the $69.00 pledge level (which also includes a bonus solo card game, Lost in the Woods) through November 10th.
From Greater Than Games:
Legends of Sleepy Hollow is a cooperative game for 1 to 4 players, designed by Ben Pinchback & Matt Riddle (Fleet, Wasteland Express Delivery Service), and illustrated by Hugo award-winning artist Abigail Larson, with Colin Chan and Ksenia Svincova.
In Legends of Sleepy Hollow, players take on the roles of four residents of Tarry Town — undertaker Jeremiah Pincke, Revolutionary War veteran Matthias Geroux, minister Elijah Kappel, and tanner Emily Van Winkle — in a cooperative, miniatures-based campaign game full of secrets and twists. During the game, players will use their action pool to move around the evocative maps, investigate mysteries, interact with their environment, and unleash powerful attacks and abilities unique to each character. Once selected, however, these abilities will be unavailable until that character’s action pool has emptied — a process that becomes more challenging as that character gains fear.
Players live the adventure of Legends of Sleepy Hollow over eight chapters filled with mystery, suspense, and a deeply rich story. Each chapter is kept separate from the others so players will discover the secrets of Sleepy Hollow as they play. There are seven distinct maps in the game and each chapter unfolds and plays different than the last, so playing Legends of Sleepy Hollow feels much like playing eight different board games!
