Cult of Barnacle Bay Gameplay
As a dungeon crawler board game, you and your friends will defeat foes and survive random encounters. As you battle and win your encounters you will gain experience points and loot. These loot, like weapons and armor, will stay with your heroes as they adventure through the Barnacle Bay adventures. As you level up with experience points, unlock abilities and skills on a dual-facing upgrade tree. Try out various combination of skills that fits your play style, or to best fight against your current set of foes.
Using a modular game board, players assemble maps for the scenarios laid out in the Barnacle Bay campaign book. You and your friends will use action points to move or attack with your heroes using an initiative tracking board. Enemies in the game are controlled by simple line of sight AI. They will move towards the heroes and automatically hit them when able. However your heroes will be able to roll for defense to prevent incoming wounds. A set of custom dice for the Wander heroes determines their success for both defending and attacking.
Scenarios in the Barnacle Bay campaign have an interesting mechanic for your heroes to traverse. The Wander heroes will travel through the village above ground as well as enter the underground sewers to reach their goal! Furthermore, the tiles will have spaces that are covered in “darkness” by Elder Bane’s powers. These darkness spaces contain random encounters that ensure that no campaign adventure is the same.
Barnacle Bay Board Game is US, EU, and AUS friendly!
