Project description

Every year, “BoneReaders” leave their peaceful village to embark on the harsh pilgrimage of the “Trail of Bones”. At the end of the trail, atop the holy mountain and beyond the ice giants lies the Altar of Bones, domain of the gods. Only one BoneReader can finish the pilgrimage and bring good luck to the hunt. Perform the ritual.

BoneReaders is a two-player board game of bluff, wit and hard decisions. It is a game of duel in which both players can use the same tools to progress. Beware of the “Bone Snakes” and “Secret Ways” on your path. This game was greatly inspired by the ancient Indian board game Snakes and Ladders and the japanese card game Rivals by Kanai Factory.
