Hunter. Adventurer. The greatest marksman to ever live.
You are Allan Quatermain in this deck-building adventure game set in the wilds of Africa. Travel back to the late 1800’s – grab your gun, choose your allies wisely, and set out to seek your fortune. Quatermain features fast-paced, deck-building action, with a novel hunting phase that is part of a dual market system, plus a unique balance required between allies and wealth for final scoring. Prepare to set out on adventure! Are you game?
Quatermain offers multiple paths to victory. Like most deck-builders, chaining together powerful adventure cards is always a solid strategy. However, you also have cards that remain in play: guns and allies, of which you can select one of each to take on your adventure each turn. You can save up for expensive cards that will provide ongoing benefits each turn, or even focus on an ammunition heavy deck to give yourself control over the hunting phase. In addition to animals, the African veldt on which you hunt is also home to dangerous enemies. Strategic hunting can deprive your opponent of easy targets and force them to deal with enemies, or pay the penalty for failing to do so.
Launching on Kickstarter January 11, 2022 at 40% off retail, you can support Quatermain for $30 and get your hands on the newest, most unique deck-builder out there. Reviewers have raved they “love the two markets… love the mechanics… love the balance” and that it’s a “different type of deck-building game” that adds a “unique twist to the genre.” Don’t miss out on this great new game that’s been given “two thumbs up” by Everything Board Games!
