Asmodee revealed a new engine-builder board game from Unexpected Games called 3000 Scoundrels. In the game, you’re trying to make the best scoundrel in an alternate Wild West setting to bluff your way to winning the game.
There are 60 clear job cards that can be mixed and matched with the 50 trait cards for thousands of different combinations and help make each game unique. Unexpected Games recently announced that 3000 Scoundrels will be available on October 7 with pre-orders now open through Asmodee or Amazon with an MSRP of $49.95.
In 3000 Scoundrels, 2-4 players enter an alternative history Wild West, assuming the roles of rival crew leaders attempting to steal futuristic technology left behind by a mysterious man known only as the Traveler. During the game, players build their crew of scoundrels by layering transparent “job cards” with “trait cards,” making a team that’s ideally suited for their strategy. Each turn, they’ll play a poker card face down, then use all of their scoundrels that match that card – but they don’t have to tell the truth… and savy players will understand the power of bluffing their way to the top. At the game’s end, the player with the most tech will claim victory and determine the fate of the American Frontier.
