New Game Release! The Crew: Mission Deep Sea

the crewCheck out a new way to dive into adventure this summer at WPL.  The Crew:  Mission Deep Sea is the newest addition to WPL’s board game collection.  This co-operative, trick-taking game is for 3-5 players, ages 10 and up.  It is the 2021 Golden Geek Medium Game of the Year Winner and the 2021 Golden Geek Best Cooperative Game Winner.  From the publisher –

In the trick-taking card game The Crew:  Mission Deep Sea, you and other players work together to search for the lost continent of Mu.  This new adventure takes your crew deep down into the abyss on a search for the fabled sunken land.  How far you get depends entirely on how well you work together as a team.  Card by card, trick by trick, your search party will discover the challenges that lie ahead and forge a path to Mu.

This new version of The Crew has the same innovative co-operative trick-taking mechanism as the highly lauded original game – but with some exciting new surprises!  While communication between your crew members is severely limited by your submerged state, it is also critical to your success; finding the hidden land in the murky depths depends not only on winning tricks, but also on carefully negotiating the order in which they are won.  If things don’t go as planned, you might just be able to salvage the operation, but it will take near flawless execution and perhaps a little luck to finally reach Mu.

The Crew:  Mission Deep Sea will be available for check out beginning Thursday, July 7.  WPL’s board game collection is made possible thanks to support from the WPL Friends of the Library.  Board games can be checked out by patrons ages 10 and older for one week.
