CUDO Plays Recommends
This week CUDO Plays recommends Catacombs!
This is a cooperative dexterity game set in the fantasy world. One player (the Overseer) marshals an army of monsters while the others choose from six brave heroes who embark on a quest to save the their town from the threat lurking in the catacombs below. As the heroes explore, they must use their abilities, buy items, and recruit allies to help them defeat the monsters before facing the powerful Catacomb Lord, thereby saving the town. In Catacombs players flick wooden discs that represent the monsters and heroes. Contact with an opposing piece inflicts damage, while missiles, spells, and other special abilities can cause other effects. When all of the monsters of a room have been cleared, the heroes can move further into the catacomb.
