Embrace New Zealand’s mountaineering heritage by taking on the Savage Mountain in K2!
Prepare to take on one of the deadliest mountains in the world withK2!
Players take on the role of climbing expeditions in a race to the top of the second deadliest mountain in the world.
Through hand management and simultaneous action selection, players must battle weather and acclimatisation in an attempt to claim glory.
But reaching the peak of K2 is only half the challenge – you still need to get your climbers back down in one piece!
K2 is a board game in which each player controls a team of 2 mountaineers, trying to climb to the summit of K2 and return before the other players’ teams and before the mountain kills them. Every player uses an identical deck of cards. You use the cards to move your climbers on the route pictured on the gaming board, or to acclimatize the members of your team.
You can also set up a tent and wait for better weather. You will have to choose your path carefully, as the other mountaineers can block your way, and watch the upcoming weather which can lower your acclimatization to 0, thus killing your climbers.
K2 is a hand management game for 1-5 players, with strong interaction and low luck factor, lasting up to 60 minutes. The theme is very well represented by the mechanics, including such elements as changing weather, lack of oxygen and death of the mountaineers. The result is an exciting match for gamers and non-gamers alike.
The box includes, among other materials, a double-sided board with two different routes to the summit (easier and harder) and two sets of weather tiles (for summer and winter).
