The folks at Survivalogics Inc are back with another deck for their card game that makes you question the line between survival and humanity. While the first two decks were rather broad and would be best played with folks you trust, the last deck, based on The New World Series, had a more central theme and made it more playable with just about anyone. The fourth deck in the series follows suit with the last deck, and is based on The Survivalist Series Novels by A. American.
The benefit of basing some of these decks around books is that it makes it a bit more practical for those who may not be into the survival lifestyle and not have the dramatic shock factor they’d have otherwise. Something new that this deck will add to the game are cards called Reality Checks. These should bring a new tone to the game to make the game a little more intense. I’m pretty interested to see these cards and how it affects the gameplay.
The Survivalist Series deck will be available for pre-order tomorrow, October 4th, through the Survivalogics Inc website. I expect that anyone who enjoyed the last deck and how it focused around some central characters from novels will like this deck as well. I am personally a bit more familiar with the novels from Deck 4, so I’m anxious to get it into our collection and take it to the table.
