If you're a fan of '80s horror slasher flicks like Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street (and who isn't?!) or have ever wanted to play a part in one of these classics, then 1 Survives is the next best thing! Currently funding on Kickstarter, the card game has players fending off a killer as they attempt to escape an island, and as you probably guessed, only one will survive.
Here's more details via the official Kickstarter campaign:
A High School boat trip goes gravely wrong when the engine dies and the vessel drifts onto the rocky shoreline of a seemingly deserted island. The boat is damaged in the collision and the group must search for a means to repair the craft or an alternative way to escape the island.
However, all is not as it seems as the island has one lone inhabitant, who has removed themselves from society to avoid the temptation of taking further lives of innocent victims. The disturbance has reignited a bloodlust and every soul who remains on the island is their next potential victim.
1 Survives is a fast-paced card game of strategy and skill. It is every player for themselves as you try to find an alternative way to escape the island while evading and fending off the killer’s attacks. Of course, sending the killer after one of your ‘friends’ might just increase your chances of success.
A perfect travel game or party game, with enough depth to make players think, but also simple to pick up and play quickly. With each game lasting between 10 and 20 minutes, it is ideal for short breaks or a quick fix of fun during longer gaming sessions.
The game is a mix of a set collection element, which allows you to escape or to permanently put an end to the killer and 'take that' as you send the killer to attack other players, thwarting their escape efforts and pushing them ever closer to a grisly end."
