Abyss is an engaging set-collection card game with menacing artwork and beautifully illustrated cards depicting a underwater kingdom.
In Abyss, players are vying for control in an underwater city. The objective is to be crowned the King of the Abyss by gaining the most influence points. Influence points are gained by affiliating Allies, recruiting lords, and controlling locations.
To achieve this, players must develop on three levels: first by collecting allies, then using them to recruit Lords of the Abyss, who will then grant access to different parts of the city. Players acquire cards through a draft of sorts, and the Lords of the Abyss acquired on those cards grant special powers to the cardholder — but once you use the cards to acquire a location, that power is shut off, so players need to time their land grabs well in order to put themselves in the best position for when the game ends.
A visually stunning set collection game for 2-4 players. A must have that will look impressive on any board game shelf!
