Game Information

Year Published
Elzra Corp.

Survive together — or die together! In Catacombs, players take control of four heroes (represented by wooden discs) that must fight their way through a series of rooms filled with monsters controlled by the Overseer. Battles are fought by skillfully flicking (otherwise known as shooting) different types of wooden pieces across the game board that represents the current room of the catacomb. If they survive all the rooms, the heroes face the objective of their quest: a fight to the finish with the Catacomb Lord! The Third Edition of this the award-winning, fantasy, dexterity board game features exciting, new content, new artwork by Kwanchai Moriya, and includes the original Horde of Vermin expansion.

Slightly torn on this game. It's a fun dexterity game but the asymetric player sides feel a little weird... and the original 3rd printing has some pretty screwed up balance that encourages the dungeonmaster to pull their punches. On the other hand, it plays quickly and is self-contained which is attractive.
Fun game, but early feeling is that all the power is in the hands of the overlord. He's pacing the game and - if he chooses to - he can make it near impossible for the heroes to win.

Looking forward to my copy, hope it goes out soon. I kickstarted this one, I think the art is a huge improvement. Seemed low risk.

This has an expected release date of April, but it looks like stores are not entirely confident that will happen.

I do like the new art.
