On May 26th Facade Games will launch Bristol 1350 on Kickstarter. This will be the 4th volume in the Dark Cities Series (previous games include Salem 1692, Tortuga 1667, and Deadwood 1876).
Bristol 1350 is for 2-9 Players. It can be learned in 10 minutes and plays for 20-40 minutes. It is recommended for ages 13+.
In the game the dreaded Black Death has descended upon the town of Bristol. You are racing down the streets in one of the three available apple carts, desperate to escape into the safety of the countryside. If your cart is the first to leave the town and it is full of only healthy villagers when you leave, you and your fellow cart-mates successfully escape and win the game!
However, some villagers on your cart may already have the plague! They are hiding their early symptoms from you so that they can enjoy their last few days in peace. If you leave town with a plagued villager on your cart, you will catch the plague. You must do whatever is necessary to make sure that doesn’t happen!
On the surface Bristol 1350 is part cooperative teamwork, part racing strategy, and part social deduction. In reality, it’s a selfish scramble to get yourself out of town as fast as possible without the plague, by any means necessary.
The game comes in a magnetic book box and includes a rubber playmat, 9 wood pawns, 3 miniature carts, 6 rat/apple dice, a linen bag, and 64 cards. For the first time ever, Facade Games will also offer a deluxe version that adds 6 coins, 6 cards, 3 metal carts, and 3 art prints.
