Adrift: Lost at Sea

A game that turns your table into a lifeboat and generates unique adventure shanties

Successful Kickstarter Campaign!

 

Adrift: Lost at Sea is a challenging, 2 - 4 player, cooperative card game that focuses on bringing people together. It’s like the Oregon Trail meets a 16th Century shipwreck - As you make the journey back home on the unforgiving tides, your table becomes the lifeboat and you become the survivors. Plus, at the end of the game, you'll get a unique sea shanty about your voyage to sing (or chant) together and reminisce about your adventure!

 

On this journey home, you'll endure storms, navigate the seas, balance and repair your tiny lifeboat, fish for sustenance, and work together to help each other survive!
