All of the listings for JAN 2020 are going to be bare bones just so I can get everything uploaded!!  My sincerest apologies to those of you who enjoy my poetic waxing and emoji-laden banter!! 😉

Short story – this is a really unique game with an incredibly emotive theme… Contemplating choices and your own ethos as the end of human existence comes into focus. This game is a psychotherapist’s dream! Ha! Seriously though… this is equal part game and psychological introspection… a fascinating game by the fine team over at Axis Mundi! Time to roll up your sleeves and dive into a storyline that will have your attention turning toward your own philosophy mores than your desire to win the game itself! Wonderfully new and different!

I’ll come back and update this listing later… but for now, I will at least provide a link to the Original Kickstarter campaign so you can get a feel for this wonderful game! The link is here!

Description

Humanity is dying, and there’s no escaping it. Only a few hours remain before human existence wanes forever.

The cause is still unknown, and no matter how you struggle, your life will soon come to an end. With only few hours until your departure, what are you going to do? A whirlwind of emotions rushes through you, and a glimpse of self-awareness blossoms. Will you be able to discover who you really are before The End?

So Long, My World is a psychologial horror card game for 1-5 players, with a unique art style and immersive, emotive theme.

It is the first board game that asks the players to think about their own death and its implications through a dreamlike, procedural narrative.

So Long, My World is the first board game that brings philosophy to the table.

In particular, it is based on existentialism, structuralism and psychoanalysis.

In Solo Mode, the player must fight against the cognitive disruption that is affecting every human being, trying to unlock Vision cards (memories and thoughts of people and places you may visit before the End) and prevent them from disappearing forever. Each turn, a previously unlocked Vision may become locked again. Each scenario has a specific setup with different sets of cards, conditions, and different endings. The more endings you achieve, the more Words (archetypical signifiers of human consciousness) you will discover, unlocking new powers and scenarios.

In multiplayer, you choose amongst Vision cards in order to gather Feelings (in the form of tokens) and use them to discover your true self by playing Remnant cards from your hand. Remnant Cards can change a person’s heart or alter the perception of time, so use them wisely to hinder, or even help your opponents.

Is morality universal or a mere construct?
If nobody can remember of you, has life a purpose?
If soul has its place inside of my body, does it means that the soul is a physical being?

These are only a few of the many questions the players will face.
