Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island: Mystery Tales Expansion is the second expansion for the acclaimed game of castaway survival, Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island! This expansion includes an entirely new way to play, in addition to some familiar components to add variability to your base game. Embark on an expedition where haunting challenges await. Play two new scenarios that will test even the most experienced players! Experience Robinson Crusoe with the all new Horror Mode!
The box for Mystery Tales is packed with high quality components – you get 7 scenarios in total, multiple decks of cards, piles of tokens and markers, campaign book and a rulebook, as well as the new board tiles!
Mystery Tales expansion introduces an entirely new mode – Horror mode. Take an entirely different journey, and enjoy the increased replayability of the scenarios from the base game – Adventures on the Cursed Island. What’s more, Mystery Tales is introducing new Non-Player Characters – or just NPC’s if you will – who will accompany players while playing either with the use of a Horror mode or going through the Campaign. Once a character dies or goes insane (Yeah, that’s right, the expansion introduces a brand new way to ‘die’), it doesn’t have to mean the end of the game! Now you will be able to choose one of the available NPC’s (that is if any are still alive and well) and flip their card to the other side, and continue with new playable character, so you see, the death of any playable character won’t always end your adventure. However, be warned – this rule does not make the game easier all of a sudden – surviving in the horror mode is a real challenge!
Oh, and keep in mind that if any of your characters go insane – you can bet that they will be back to haunt and probably hurt you. They will create chaos and will do their best to make your life harder with the use of new Insanity Cards, that goes into the Adventure decks.
Robinson Crusoe: Mystery Tales introduces a new campaign, called The Lost City of Z. It consists of five connected scenarios, that form a complete story.
Mystery Tales is the first Robinson Crusoe expansion that introduces real story choices, presented in a “choose your own adventure” style book. It makes each event that you experience during the game more immersive and interactive. While you are going through the campaign, you will face choices, presented to you in the adventure book, which will have an impact on your game, while you explore the mysterious story behind Col. Fawcett’s expedition.
