Later this year will see the release of the Tales from the Loop: The Boardgame from Free League Publishing. The hit RPG comes to the realm of board games as players will take the roles of young teens solving weird mysteries. The game is for one to five players, ages 12+, plays in 90 to 120 minutes, and the standard edition should carry an MSRP around $59.99 and the deluxe edition should carry an MSRP around $99.99 when they hit stores later this year.
About the game:
In 1954, the government ordered the construction of the world’s largest particle accelerator. The facility was completed in 1969, located deep below the pastoral suburban countryside, outside of the big city. The local population called this marvel of technology the Loop. Over the years since it was built, strange phenomena have started to appear in the area – mysterious creatures stalking the land, machines malfunctioning in inexplicable ways.
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.
In Tales From the Loop – The Boardgame, 1-5 players take the roles of teenagers who investigate the mysteries originating from the Loop, a huge underground science facility with strange effects on the suburban landscapes around it – just make sure you’re home in time for dinner!
Tales From the Loop – The Boardgame is designed by Martin Takaichi and includes high-quality miniatures by Paolo Parente’s Dust Studio.
