Coldwater Crown by Brian Suhre now on Kickstarter
August 1, 2016 - 9:33pm
A new euro style worker placement game, Coldwater Crown by Brian Suhre, attempts to recreate the feel of a fishing tournament in the North Atlantic. Players take actions by placing and recalling Angler tokens to catch fish by clearing zones of bait, which fits the theme perfectly. Working out of a tackle box inspired player board, each player tries to catch the right fish at the right time to earn the most trophies during and at the end of the game. You can earn points by getting the highest total fish weight from an area, getting the small fish, being the first to have eight different species of fish, first to catch 12 fish, and several other goals. The game combines worker placement and puzzle-like mechanisms to set and clear bait so only you can clear the zone and catch more than an empty hook. The Campaign is live now, and runs until Aug 9th so go check out some reviews and game play videos on their Kickstarter page to see if Coldwater Crown reels in your contribution.
