About the game:
Step into Simon Stålenhag’s stunning retro sci-fi world! In Tales from the Loop: The Board Game by Free League Publishing, players play cooperatively to investigate the mysteries originating from the Loop, a huge underground science facility with strange effects on the suburban landscapes around it. Players take the roles of local kids that investigate whatever phenomena that threaten the islands—and hopefully stop them. Each day starts at school, but as soon as the bell rings players can use whatever time they have before dinner and homework to go exploring!
In the Tales From the Loop – The Board Game, you take the roles of local kids and play cooperatively to investigate whatever phenomena that threaten the islands (or perhaps just the local video store), and hopefully stop them. Each day starts at school, but as soon as the bell rings you can use whatever time you have before dinner and homework to go exploring! Player actions are integrated, meaning there’s no downtime as you wait for others taking their turn. It also makes cooperating with your fellow players dynamic as you can react to things that happen in a turn and don’t have to plan it all out from the start.
