Four wanderers search for the Last Ruin, a city that legends say contains an artifact that will grant the greatest desires of the heart. A lost love, redemption, acceptance, a family rejoined– these are the fires that fuel the wanderers’ journeys, but can they overcome their own greed and inner demons on the way?


Near and Far is a mid weight, card drafting, story telling game for 2-4 players in a gentle fantastical world.

In Near and Far, you and up to three friends explore many different maps in a search for the Last Ruin, recruiting adventurers, hunting for treasure, and competing to be the most storied traveler. You must collect food and equipment at town for long journeys to mysterious locales, making sure not to forget enough weapons to fight off bandits, living statues, and rusty robots! Sometimes in your travels you’ll run into something unique and one of your friends will read what happens to you from a book of stories, giving you a choice of how to react, creating a new and memorable tale each time you play.

Journey through a book of maps filled with amazing adventure in this storytelling sequel to Above and Below. Choose your path in connected quest lines. This game includes a gorgeous atlas of 11 maps to play on. Buy skills for your character over a ten-map campaign. Search for a lost city in a strange and wonderful world of ruins; manage and recruit adventurers, each with a unique identity; read from a book of stories, building an amazing and memorable tale each time you play!

Choose How You Play: with 4 different game modes, 8 different characters, and 11 different maps, Near and Far offers you unprecedented control over how you play.
