As mentioned before, the exploration side of the game uses a book with various choose-your-own-adventure style options in it. At the third game it is pretty basic and relaxed – but you know, I really enjoyed that. The objectives can be based around any of the core sets of actions. We just didn’t want to put 2.5 more hours into playing the next scenario when we could already see the way it would have to play out. SeaFall is a 4X game (explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate) set in an "age of sail" world reminiscent of our world. Each guild allows you to sail as an action, and then they have two specific actions of their own.
In SeaFall, the world is starting to claw its way out of a dark age and has begun to rediscover seafaring technology.
Find Game 3 of SeaFall is here!
It sails out of the dock like a majestic galleon, only to hit rapids, white water, waterfalls, rocks, and finally sinks.
The previous game he jumped from last place to first by getting 9 glory in a single turn through random exploration and completing an objective. Top 10 Games We Wanted to Like - But Didn't! My group unlocked it twice.
That being said, Seafall doesn’t end at scenario three, and unfortunately, I think that is one of the big problems with the game.
The ships go out and explore the seven seas. The mechanics around buying and selling worked really well, and, last Tuesday, we actually made the comment that Seafall could probably be sold with just the 3rd scenario in mind as a pretty good pirate based game. Games end when one player reaches a target score, so it’s a race to get there.
Like the players who play them, Legacy games 'remember' what happen from game to game.
Builders can upgrade ships or upgrade provinces. I’m personally still tempted to take one of my unopened boxes and make a custom board for a seafaring D&D sandbox game.
One thing we found, as the game progressed, was that the focus of the game shifts substantially a few games in.
Player choices have irreversible impact on the game world as the game board changes, cards are modified and sealed packs are opened revealing twists and turns in an epic storyline. I’m glad you enjoyed reading it .
SeaFall is a board game designed by Rob Daviau and published in 2016 by Plaid Hat Games.
These vary and are for the taking, also offering glory. Yes we did. Advisers can be activated for one round, giving short term benefits to the game. Ahoy! Well I know what it is.

At the end of the day is just a game and for what it’s worth for a majority of it I did enjoy myself.
We do video reviews, and an audio show, and more. It’s just hides on the outskirts like a whale beside a school of fish. As a game, Seafall takes place over the course of several rounds, and those rounds are split into years. There is a lot of randomness in. The second option was we start playing 7th Continent on our Tuesday sessions, and simply stop playing Seafall.
Seafall is a game where the catch up mechanics don’t really work that well and a huge amount of the game hinges on luck.
SeaFall evolves from one game to the next using a legacy system developed previously by Daviau in his Risk Legacy and Pandemic Legacy: Season 1 games. Well the game would end is what, and while within is a hastily bolted on epilogue as if Michael Bay had suddenly been prodded and told to sort this mess out mostly it was the stale air of dissatisfaction. This isn’t necessarily an issue with the game – and exploration like how Seafall implement it is often seen like a strength – however, in Seafall’s case it falls a little bit short when compared to other games that use a similar mechanic. Each game can take 90 minutes to three hours to play. As with Risk and Pandemic, SeaFall has those marvellous boxes each a tantalising prospect of new and exciting developments however its in how it chooses to utilise them that differs from its illustrious predecessors.
If you don’t want to know anything, I suggest you stop reading here.
What is sad is that with a few minor tweaks, Seafall can be a great game. Through the use of a team of advisors, each player discovers islands, develops trade, acquires resources and technology, and initiates conflict.. Discover lost civilizations.
It just needs more play testing and it needs more balancing.
Sail until the sea falls off the edge of the world!
Okay, so here is where it gets a bit complicated from a spoiler perspective, so we’ll keep this simple. After finishing the post-end game play through, ending in what was likely around 40-50 hours of solid pirating, plundering, and p.... spelunking? I think you’re the first person to review the game (out of reviews that I read and it’s probably up to 3 dozen for me by now) who made any kind of observation about what kind of game you could salvage from it. Eventually, the only viable way to keep up is through exploration, which results in huge swings of points, sometimes awarding as much as half the target score, and other times awarding nothing.
Players take on the role of a …
As more gets unlocked the game becomes more and more unbalanced, and as such I cannot, unfortunately, recommend Seafall as a game to play.
, Thanks for reading John! Enjoy 7th Continent; I’ve been playing it solo and have loved every minute of it. SeaFall is the third legacy game from acclaimed designer Rob Daviau.

Each round also starts with hiring an adviser or buying a treasure.
It’s by design there teasing and building anticipation every single time you play.
We didn’t open it, but I kind of want to now just to see what happens! How do you play Seafall? It made it quite ironic.
Games like Tales of the Arabian Nights and This War of Mine have beautifully written stories and options where you feel like your choices really make a difference.
As such, the game really dried up for us.
Goods can be brought from it and sold.
It was also the first legacy game that he created from a brand new concept, unlike Risk Legacy and Pandemic Legacy Season One, which were based on existing games. If you find the same thing we found with the objectives then maybe try reducing the glory for them (we didn’t so I can’t necessarily tell you precisely how it will change the game). Let me know in the comments below. For me, this started so well, I was willing to look beyond some of its shortcomings.
Sail the open sea in search of new lands. It is present, and kind of hints at its existence, but it doesn’t get involved.
