Plaid Hat had a huge success with their first Crossroads game Dead of Winter. So much so that it spawned a sequel and a half. Their second - Gen 7 - misjudged the price point, came in at twice the price (but twice the contents) and ended up struggling to find a market. Sure, Gloomhaven proved people would pay huge money for Gloomhaven. But that didn't mean they would for anything that wasn't Gloomhaven.
Forgotten Waters brings us back to the price point of Dead of Winter - and if you aren't excited by a pirate themed crossroads game that doesn't need a second mortgage to buy, then shiver me timbers and call me a scurvy dog. Arrr!
Forgotten Waters is a Crossroads Game set in a world of fantastical pirate adventure. In it, players take on the role of pirates sailing together on a ship, attempting to further their own personal stories as well as a common goal.
The world of Forgotten Waters is silly and magical, with stories designed to encourage players to explore and laugh in delight as they interact with the world around them. It's a game in which every choice can leave a lasting impact on the story, and players will want turn over every rock just to see what they find.
Forgotten Waters features five scenarios and a massive location book that provides players with tons of choices wherever they go.
If you have never played a Crossroads game before? Well, the players have to work together, but they all have agendas, so there's plenty of backstabbing and cut-throating to satisfy even the most bloodthirsty buccaneer. I should also probably point out that this is a digital hybrid game, and requires a mobile phone to play.
