Introducing Unearth by Jason Harner, Matthew Ransom and Brotherwise Games.
Do you ever wonder what secrets lay in your civilization's past or what wonders wait to be discovered in lost cities, but don't want to take up archeology as a profession? Well now you can experience it all with Unearth 😉
In unearth, you play as cute little delvers on a quest to restore your civilization.
Unearth is a dice placement game for 2-4 players.
Players take turns rolling one of five dice in an attempt to claim ruins. Each ruin card is claimed when the number on the top left has been reached. The player's dice with the highest value wins the card. 🙂
So for example: let's say two players were aiming for that dark purple card. Red rolled a 4, but Yellow rolled a 5, the combined total on the dice equals 9 so the ruin has been claimed. But only Yellow gets to take the card because their die was of higher value. 🙈
"But what happens to Red?", You may ask. 🤔
For each of Red's dice on that card (as well as any other player's dice), the player receives a delver card. A card that helps you manipulate your rolls or change what has been rolled already. 🤓
There are many ways to score points in this game, including trying to roll low numbers and score Stones and rebuild the wonders of the past.
You must be strategic in your dice placement and watch what your opponents are up to 🙃
We really like this game because of all the different ways it can be played. It offers a perfectly balanced amount of challenge and luck with dice rolls, which keep us coming back to Unearth in our game nights. 😃
