Internal unrest brews among the court of the Abyss. The warlike Crabs bring chaos against the wise mages of the Jellyfish while the merchant Shellfish wage trade wars against the insidious Squid politicians. Can you recruit the allies you need to master the lords of the Abyss?

Venture to Abyss, where players must battle monsters, recruit allies, and sway the great lords of the deep. The right hand of ally cards will let you control the lords who will help you seize the kingdoms of the Abyss. Be careful of your foes, though, because treachery abounds in the lands under the sea!

  • Decent point salad fun.
  • Fantasy Flight Mini american board game size. 41x63mm 100 mircon small cards. Lord cards are sleeved with mayday games premium 65x100 125% thicker.
  • "I am Jacques Cousteau. Join me on an expedition into the depths of the Abyss, a world of unimaginable monsters, a world where neither sunlight nor theme can ever penetrate."It's the art that prevents this game from being completely lame. I will happily play this anytime just so I can experience flights of fancy as I ponder the exceptionally beautiful art, especially that of the location cards; but the art is what makes the game so disappointing, as it holds the promise of a wonderful, fantastical undersea epic struggle, and doesn't even try to deliver. You're then left with nothing but mechanics, which are quite run of the mill.I'll play Abyss anytime just to see the art (for which I give it an 8). The mechanics are pretty standard (for which I give it a 6). Thus, my rating of 7.
  • High player interaction and gorgeous art makes this game a standout for me. Easy to teach yet strategically rewarding. Plus the plastic pearls are great fun to play with. Kraken expansion is a must for me.

Haha, nice. I have a few games that are still on there that either have lost some appeal to me or are somewhat redundant in my collection. #Abyss is somewhat the latter. It looks like a fun game with a neat theme and art, but I just feel like I have games that feel similar and don't really need to be spending money on it. If it was super cheap I might snag it, but otherwise I should probably just take it off.

There's another category - the strictly mechanical game that is so dry that no one would be drawn to play it. Examples: #Tikal and #Blue Moon: City

#Abyss is one that I haven't played but looks fun, and has a cool underwater theme. Same for #Aquatica.
