scavengers-comp Godforsaken Scavengers is the latest Kickstarter game from Drawblack, and it's a push your luck survival horror type card game.  In the game you can choose to play competitively or cooperatively, from there you then pick a scenario which will give you conditions you have to meet each round as well as the overall win/loss conditions.  On your turn you will pick a pile with randomly chosen cards of three different levels of danger, safe-ish yellow, risky orange, and dangerous red.  You will start drawings cards, going as far as you like and then when you feel like you have pushed your luck enough you can stop, any cards you drew are then added to your hand.  There will be helpful cards that give you more actions, food so you are able to eat at the end of the round, or peril cards which give you afflictions.  Afflictions will give you negative effects like having to discard cards, not being able to draw from the same pile, and so on, lowering you chance for survival.  If you can survive to the end without gaining too many afflictions, you survive! Art for this game is very clean and stark, which works great for a survival horror type game like this.  There is a good amount of variety in the box and the ability to play cooperative or competitive means you can satisfy the desired play style of multiple groups.  If this game sounds interesting to you then head on over to the campaign page to pledge for your copy.
