Rumor has it that a Legendary new game is coming...

Post by Reuben »

Hello all, I am Reuben Brunson, the creator of a new game called Rumors and Legends. I believe this is a game you enjoy as lovers of Clue (I am as well). I am excited to share it with you! Here is the gist:

Rumors and Legends
A Mystery Deduction Board Game with a Strange Twist

Rumors and Legends is a new, fun-filled mystery deduction board game from the creative minds of BIGABOT Games and the Rowdy Dept. The game is scheduled to debut on Kickstarter in early 2022.

Rumors and Legends stars a cast of creepy creatures and Cryptids, like the Sasquatch and Loch Ness Monster. It features legendary locations, like The Himalayas and Roswell, New Mexico. There is an array of bizarre ways that poor Professor Daffle, the world's leading researcher of Cryptozoology, may have disappeared, like Time Warp and Black Hole. You are also in constant peril of getting lost in the Bermuda Triangle.

Rumors and Legends is a light game that can be learned in 15 minutes and takes around 45 minutes on average to play. You'll find the mechanics comfortably familiar if you have played the usual suspects of mystery games before, but a host of new twists and turns to make the game feel unique, modern and thematically interesting.

Rumors and Legends was designed to appeal to a broad audience of casual board game enthusiasts, ages 10 and up. The quirky theme, beautiful artwork and museum-like quality figurines may also appeal to the serious game collector or hobbyist.

We hope you will enjoy Rumors and Legends as much as we have enjoyed creating it. It is our sincere wish that it will bring your friends and family together at the table….

Those are some very nice images - looks like a cryptozoological themed take on Clue/do?

Your powers of deduction are strong! I like to say that you'll find the mechanics comfortable if you have played the "usual suspects" of mystery deduction games.

The end game of discovering three cards in a top secret folder is definitely familiar. The game itself, with unique and more modern mechanics, is far from just a re-skin of the older game.

Thematically, we have created a new, mysterious world. It's retro with a hint of steam punk. Less lead pipes in the kitchen, more Yetis in the Bermuda Triangle... ; )

We will have videos of gameplay soon. If you would like to stay in the loop, the best way is to join our email list at www.rumorsandlegendsgame.com, and our Inner Circle group at www.facebook.com/groups/rumorsandlegends. We plan to launch on Kickstarter in early 2022, and hope to see you in this new world....

Although the theme of this game isn't for me, it looks great

Thank you and understood, it's definitely not going to be to everyone's taste. Professor Daffle hopes you will give it a shot to find him though...

It's so interesting. Will it come out later on the PC? I usually download games from a torrent thenewpiratebay.org as there the easiest way to download any games. And I can't wait for it to come out online. The essence of the game I seem to understand but it will need more practice.

Hey Max, we are definitely looking into creating an online game, or an app version, in the future. Initially though, it will be a board game, as we are passionate about creating games that bring friends and family to the table. The game is scheduled to launch on Kickstarter on February 22.
