The start of your Earthborne journey. Contains everything needed to play with 1-4 people.
"Earthborne Rangers is a customizable, co-operative card game set in the wilderness of the far future. You take on the role of a Ranger, a protector of the mountain valley you call home: a vast wilderness transformed by monumental feats of science and technology devised to save the Earth from destruction long ago." - Earthborne Kickstarter
But it's really more than that. We'd describe it as a different genre of expandable card game, one that is more akin to open world role-playing games where exploration and story are the focus. Go where you want. Do what you want. Wander aimlessly. Discover what's out there.
The mechanics and cards provide the depth needed to satisfy more serious "gamers" interested in maximizing the value of their plays, but one can play as inefficiently as desired and still enjoy the richness of the experience. This is a game to sink into fully, with a hot drink or a tall pint in hand, soaking up the visuals as your imagination whisks you into a future that we might all hope to one day realize.
At the same time, Earthborne Rangers is a different "genre" of production. 100% FSC-certified paper. German manufacturing with paper from German forests. No plastic coatings. No shrink wrap. Vegetable based inks. Aside from the staples in the rulebook, everything is recyclable and/or compostable, and will not persist on our planet indefinitely.
It's an exceptional game made by exceptional people. We can't recommend it enough.
An extra set of the player cards found in the Core Set. Suggested for 2-4 player groups.
Four players can play out of the Earthborne Core Set, but that requires that each player resists splashing outside of their role. This is a game that feels best when you're creating unique and interesting characters, so we do suggest the doubler for groups of 2-4 players. It expands options during initial deckbuilding and throughout the game via rewards and trading, but it is not required.
