Product Description

Product Description

Catacombs is an action/dexterity based adventure board game. One player controls the Overseer controlling the monsters of the catacombs. The other player(s) control the four heroes who cooperatively try to defeat the monsters and eventually the Catacomb Lord. Each of the heroes have special abilities that must also be used effectively if they are to prevail. The main mechanic of Catacombs is for the players to flick wooden discs representing the monsters and the heroes. Contact with an opposing piece inflicts damage but missiles spells and other special abilities can cause other effects. When all of the monsters of a room have been cleared the heroes can move further into the catacomb. Items and equipment upgrades can be purchased from the Merchant with gold taken from fallen monsters. The Catacomb Lord is the final danger that the heroes must defeat to win the game. Conversely the Overseer wins if all of the heroes are defeated. The game is designed for quick setup and fast play.

From the Manufacturer

Catacombs is an action/dexterity based adventure board game. One player controls the Overseer, directing the monsters of the catacomb. The other player(s) control the party of four heroes who cooperatively try to defeat the monsters and eventually the Catacomb Lord. Each of the heroes’ special abilities must also be used effectively if they are to prevail. The main mechanic of Catacombs is for the players to flick wooden discs representing monsters, heroes, missiles and fireballs. Contact with an opposing piece inflicts damage but stun shots, spells, and other special abilities can cause other effects. When all of the monsters in a room (represented by one of the game boards) have been destroyed, the heroes can proceed deeper into the catacomb. Items that give the heroes new abilities and weapons can be purchased from the Merchant with gold taken from fallen monsters. The Catacomb Lord is the final danger that the heroes must prevail against to win the game. Conversely, the Overseer wins if all of the heroes are defeated. The game is designed for quick setup and fast play.

So, I heard about this game from "Shut Up and Sit Down". They are funny as hell, and basically make me want to play every game they talk about.
As far as this game goes: Amazing. Fun.

The rulebook is a little confusing. It took a couple of times to understand all the little bits. If you are the one running the board, and controlling the monsters, a fair bit of advice would be to sit down and get a fairly good grasp of the rules before you ask your friends to play.

I think you can say that about any board game.

Please buy this game. It really is a lot of fun. And online, you can find some variant classes, and there are expansions with more monsters. And more classes. And more boards. I'm not sure about that last one. Umm. Bye?

Catacombs is an innovative twist on traditional dungeon crawling board games that is as unique as it is fun and exciting. The game pieces are wooden disks of various sizes and colors representing Heros, Monsters, and Spells which the players control by flicking across the board like paper football or shuffleboard, dealing damage to the enemies they collide with. This skill based gameplay keeps the game exciting since you never get bogged down in stats and dice. Game play consists of a sequence of rooms where the four heros battle monsters controlled by a 5th player known as the overseer, earning magic items along the way until they reach the final conflict against one of the Catacomb Lords. Each character class has different abilities, like the Elf's Arrows, Wizard's spell book, and the Barbarian's rage ability, which all work well in the context of flick based physical board game. It's a really different board game that is completely fun!

Catacombs is an odd blend of dexterity and dungeon crawl games. There are a variety of token sizes (depending on monsters and characters) that you will flick across the board to damage enemy tokens. It ends up being a lot more fun than it sounds like initially. I highly recommend the Caverns of Soloth expansion to add more characters and give the players some options. The other two expansions are nice, but don't add as much. I wish there was an expansion that added more board layouts, though.

I play a lot of board, card and video games. It's refreshing to see a game that requires physical skill and strategy. I'm
in my forties and I game with people of similar ages. We all enjoy Catacombs. We tend to take longer playing than most though, but I think it's because we discuss strategy more.
