The world of Forgotten Waters is silly and magical, with stories designed...

Forgotten Waters is a Crossroads Game set in a world of fantastical pirate adventure. In it, players take on the role of pirates sailing together on a ship, attempting to further their own personal stories as well as a common goal.

Wow. First I've heard of it. Sounds like fun.

There's a guy developing a game in a space setting that sounds similar in nature, though perhaps a little less light-hearted. Current title is Where Humans Don't Belong. Has the Paragraph thing going, exploration, everybody on a ship together, but you're in space and you need to save your ship. So there's some BSM Pandora in the mix as well.

But Forgotten Waters appears to be available now. That's a featured mechanic as far as I'm concerned.

Plaid Hat is back.

Looks like it is the same team as Mice&Mystics. Wonder how similar it will be to that.

It's a narrative-driven game but is sillier than M&M. It's also less focused on family gaming.

So silly, but not a family game. Sounds interesting. I could do with some silly right about now.

I'm interested in this too! Just waiting to see how ratings/reviews pan out. Plus, no time to actually play it right now.

Gen7 was so promising but ended up being such a shitshow that I'm leery of jumping into another Crossroads game.

I’m waiting for reviews too. I like coop adventures, but I am so often disappointed.

The good news is, reviews abound. Spacebiff, No Pun Included and many others have posted reviews of some kind.

Super interested in this one. When we can game together again I tend to have to cater for larger groups, and this sound up their street. We might buy it with some of the extra money we have floating around from Patreon then review and give it away.

It got announced a couple of months ago and I was thinking about a pre-order here but after reading the rules I decided it may be a bit too light with limited replay options (especially in comparison to other games I have or have coming) so skipped on it.
I'm sure it will still be a pretty decent game and I'd sit in if it was on a table near by.

Silly as in "zany pirate antics ala Sid Meier's Pirates" silly or silly as in " you fall in love with a mermaid after being transformed into a pegleg parrot pirate putting on a preposterous pirate performance" kinda silly?

I liked Dead of Winter, could go for a more gritty or theatrical pirate story driven game that isn't based on a modified pick up and deliver engine.
