Sleeping Gods easily made our Top Ten List of 2022. We’ve just about finished our first adventure through it in early 2023, and are eager not only to see how our quest ends, but to play it again to unlock one of the other endings. This game oozes theme, provides an immersive experience, and is simple with its mechanics.
Sleeping Gods is an extraordinary board game that takes you on a fantastic adventure through a rich and immersive world filled with mystery, danger, and endless possibilities. From the moment you start playing, you’ll be completely engrossed in the game’s captivating storyline and beautifully illustrated game book.
One of the things that make Sleeping Gods such an amazing game is its innovative gameplay mechanics. Unlike many other board games, Sleeping Gods doesn’t rely on a set of pre-determined rules and outcomes. Instead, the game offers players a vast open world to explore, with multiple paths and decisions that can lead to vastly different outcomes. This means that each playthrough of the game is unique and offers a completely different experience, making it incredibly re-playable. Many adventure games have only 1 ending, or just a few of them, but this boasts numerous paths you can take as you adventure around the new world.
Another aspect of the game that stands out is its attention to detail. The artwork is simply stunning, with beautifully illustrated game cards and a beautifully crafted game book that transports you to another world. The game also comes with a detailed rulebook and storybook that is easy to understand and follow, even for players who are new to the genre.
One of the most exciting features of the game is its sense of exploration and discovery. As you travel through the game’s vast world, you’ll encounter a diverse range of creatures, characters, and landscapes, each with their own unique backstory and secrets to uncover. This sense of discovery is incredibly rewarding, and it’s what keeps you coming back for more.
Instead of having to plow through numerous rules, the game starts you right in the adventure and walks you through several of the major mechanics before setting off. It makes it easier to grasp and see the mechanic-flow of the game, as well as teach you in a much more approachable fashion.
Overall, Sleeping Gods is an exceptional board game that is sure to delight both seasoned board gamers and newcomers to the genre alike. Its innovative gameplay mechanics, beautiful artwork, and attention to detail make it a standout game that you won’t want to miss. If you’re looking for a board game that offers endless adventure and discovery, then Sleeping Gods is the perfect game for you.
PS. I think their standalone sequel is still available on Gamefound at the time of writing this.
Thanks for reading.
