Welcome to the Queen Games Escape and Edo contest! Both games are in the midst of their respective Kickstarter campaigns, and we'd love for you to learn more about the games and their Kickstarter campaigns! Take some time to learn about the games, and you just might be rewarded with one of the games, or even a trip to BGG.CON!

-----------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------

Escape: The Curse of the Temple is a cooperative game in which players must escape from a temple before the temple collapses and kills one or more explorers, thereby causing everyone to lose.

Escape is played in real-time, with all players rolling dice and taking actions simultaneously. The real-time aspect is enforced by a soundtrack to be played during the game. At certain points, a countdown starts, and if players aren't back in the safe room when time is up, they lose one of their dice. You must roll the right symbols to enter a room, and if you're at an open doorway, you can roll to reveal the next tile in the stack and add it to that doorway. Some rooms contain combinations of symbols, and if you (possibly working with other players in the same room) roll enough matching symbols, you "discover" special gems, moving them from a supply card off the game board onto that tile.

Once the exit tile is revealed, players can attempt to escape the temple by moving to that tile, then rolling a number of blue dice equal to the special gems that haven't been removed from the supply card. Thus, the more gems you find, the easier it is to escape the temple. When a player escapes, he gives one die to a player of his choice. If all players escape before the third countdown, everyone wins; if not, everyone loses, no matter how many players did escape.

-----------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------

In Edo, players represent daimyo in mid-second millennium Japan who are trying to serve their shogun by using their samurai to construct castles, markets and houses in Tokyo and surrounding areas.

Each turn, the players simultaneously choose which actions they want to take with their three cards and in which order, programming those actions on their player cards, similar to the planning phase in Dirk Henn's Wallenstein and Shogun. Players then take actions in turn order, moving samurai on the board as needed (paying $1 per space moved) in order to complete actions (to the forest for wood, the rice fields for rice, cities to build, and so on). Before a player can move samurai, however, he must use an action to place them on the game board; some actions allow free movement, and others allow a player to recruit additional samurai beyond the initial five. One other action allows you to recruit additional action cards from an array on the side of the game board, thereby giving you four (or more) cards from which to choose for the rest of the game.

Building in cities costs resources and gives you points as well as money; as more players build in a city, the funds are split among all present, with those first in the city receiving a larger share. Players can also receive points or buy stone by dealing with a traveling merchant. Once at least one player has twelve points, the game finishes at the end of the round, with players scoring endgame bonuses for money in hand and other things. The player with the most points wins.

I've been looking at Edo for a bit so I'm crossing my fingers (although I won't support it on Kickstarter....)

Woo Hoo! 6/6.

Hopefully I'll score a copy of Edo or perhaps a second copy of Escape to go with the one I've already backed.

Thanks Queen and good luck everyone.

If I've already pledged to a copy of Escape, and I happen to somehow win, will it be possible to negotiate a higher reward level, such as the one with the Adventure Pack and Collectors Edition? Thanks.

Unfortunately, I'm not allowed to participate. Would have liked to win a free copy of Escape...

But good luck to all of you!

I've been wondering when this contest would happen. I've been following the game for a while! I would love to win this game, but I'll probably try to buy it if I don't

So, there had been planned expansions even before Escape was funded?

Good luck everyone with this contest!

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.

Now this is a contest I am really hoping to win. I've had my eye on both of these games since I first heard about them, and they both are high on my wish list.

Guess it pays to read all the rules!

Escape: The Curse of the Temple looks more interesting than Edo but I'd love to come to the con as the guest of Queen!
