Introducing On Their Merry Way! Coming to Kickstarter in 2018!
Welcome to Sherwood Forest, both home and playground to the notorious Robin Hood and his Merry Men! All day, bands of Merry Men set traps to catch the gold-laden merchants brave-- or perhaps foolish-- enough to venture through the woods between Nottingham and Werschope. Most merchants travel in packs to stay clear of the dangers of the forest, but everyone has their vice and, with a well-placed distraction, the Merry Men profit enormously off the wealthy fools! Tricksters beware, however, for well-off fools aren't the only folk travelling the paths of the dark wood!
Nominated for Most Innovative Tabletop Game at Boston Festival of Indie Games, On Their Merry Way is a resource management strategy game for 2-5 people in which players take control of a band of Robin Hood's Merry Men and carefully set traps for oncoming travelers in order to grab their cash and disappear into the forest! Travelers may be merchants or guards, and all will fall for traps relating to their vice. Merchants will provide a hefty payout for clever tricksters, but guards will shut down any trap that might draw their attention.
Players compete to steal as much money as possible by planning ahead as the travelers and their vices change with each new round. Trap placement follows a pattern that invites some light programming elements to the table, but ultimately any player with enough cunning has the power to become the most successful (and richest!) band of Merry Men in all of Sherwood Forest.
On Their Merry Way will be on Kickstarter in early 2018, so keep your eyes and ears open for word of this family-friendly board game for ages 10+.
