Sneak Peek at Synapses 2022 Games

December 8, 2021 - 12:23pm

Synapses Games, a board game publisher based in Canada, has announced a lineup of new games coming in 2022:

  • First up is Draw the Line, which is designed by Jay Cormier and Chase Disher.  The game is team-based with each team having a guesser and a sketcher.  The sketcher, using a dry erase marker, makes a sketch of his “mystery” word on his sketchpad.  Then the sketcher makes sounds and mimes to his teammate, the guesser, who then must use their sketchpad to draw the word.  The game plays 4-8 players, ages 10 and up, and takes around 20 minutes to play.  For more information, check the website here

  • Next up is Betta, designed by Ikhwan Kwon with artwork supplied by Chris Setra.  This game has the players creating patterns with the species of betta assigned to them at the beginning of the game.  The more complex the pattern they create, the more points that they score.  The game includes several game modes.  It plays 1-5 players, ages 8 and up, in around 20 minutes.  For further information, check the website here

  • Finally, following up on the success of 2020’s Coatl, Synapses is releasing Coatl: The Card Game, which is designed by the original game’s designers Etienne Dubois-Roy and Pascale Brassard.  The artwork is provided by SillyJellie.  In Coatl: The Card Game the players are tasked with creating the most valuable and beautiful serpents, which are made up of a head card, a tail card, and body cards.  These cards are then used to create and claim prophecy cards.   Coatl: The Card Game is for 1-5 players, ages 10 and up, taking 20-30 minutes to play.
