Secrets of the Lost Tomb … a Prelude!
A while ago, I posted my “Top 10 Cooperative Games Off the Beaten Path“, and Secrets of the Lost Tomb was one such entry. (As usual, I got the very first printing which has a huge/different box and different cover than most people have).
I have really enjoyed this game: it’s kind of like Arkham Horror meets Betrayal at House on the Hill, but with a story! It’s sort of an RPG-light, with the expanding tiles (laying out like Betrayal at House on the Hill) and exploration reminiscent of Arkham Horror. It’s a fun game.
Some people didn’t like that it didn’t have miniatures in the box; I personally had no problem with the standees. But it influenced the “next generation” of the game …
Secrets of the Lost Station
This game just came on Kickstarter today! I loved the original, and I am looking forward to seeing what they did to “modernize” it and bring it to the future. It looks like (basically) the same game, but with a Sci-Fi setting.
You’ll also notice it has miniatures galore. I heard the Developer once say “We listened to the people: they want miniatures, and they want a normal sized box”. The very first Secrets of the Lost Tomb had a HUUGE box, but the second printing had a more standard box. It appears this will also have a standard box. And lots of miniatures.
It looks cool. Check it out here!
