Take on the role of an odd cultist in Cosmoctopus. From Lucky Duck Games, this interesting looking engine builder will task players with collecting various objects to help them claim tentacles; the first to eight tentacles is the winner. Cosmoctopus is for one to four players, ages 10+, plays in around 60 to 90 minutes, and will carry an MSRP of $40.00 when it arrives in August.
About the game:
Cosmoctopus is an engine-building, tentacle-gathering board game for 1 to 4 devotees. Guide Cosmoctopus through the Inky Realm, a flexible configuration of tiles, to gather resources and obtain powerful cards that represent relics, scripture, hallucinations and constellations. Harness the power of these bizarre objects and experiences, craft potent card combinations and be the first to gain 8 tentacles to win!
Your turns are simple; the game’s excitement and depth lie in working out how best to use an ever-powerful hand of cards. Unlike some other engine-builders, you’ll be straight into the fun, upgrading your engine from turn one. With variable setup, easy ways to alter difficulty and optional solo and co-operative modes, Cosmoctopus offers a versatile tabletop experience, whatever your gaming tastes.
