Final thoughts

“My hat’s off to the author for approaching a very popular genre of game with a very different mindset. Trying to make something that’s approachable for anyone and yet still has depth and richness and replayability!”

“How does a game like this embrace the simplicity and elegance of [Marc André – Designer of Splendor] design philosophy? […] This game is like many games in this genre but at the same time, unlike any of them.”

BoardGameQuest

“This was “choose your own adventure” on steroids. The choices you’ll be presented with each round will change and challenge. The game is always moving forward despite any indecision you might want to have.”

GeekDad

“If you’re looking for a coop game experience that’s like an RPG but without needing a GM, then Soul Raiders looks to be a great bet.”

Hungry Gamer

“Soul Raiders is a deep narrative experience, with clever card play and discovery mechanics.  The story promises to be engaging, and character growth has great potential.”

Opinionated Gamer

“So after a brief taste of the game, color me super interested in learning more about the game.”

Purple Phoenix Game

“I really do enjoy the storytelling gameplay of Soul Raiders. I think this intro prologue scenario has piqued my interest and triggered my desire to play more in the story.”

Table for One

“The dual-purpose nature of the action cards and how they are integrated with the escalating notion of fatigue is a fascinating design choice, creating a sense of urgency whilst simultaneously preventing the game from bogging down in an endless sea of side quests and bookkeeping. And based on the quality of the art assets provided in this preview, prototype version of Soul Raiders I am confident proclaiming that this is one of the most visually stunning board games I have seen and I for one cannot wait to experience the finalised version. “

The Thoughtful Gamer

“The best games can endow such shapes with import and meaning. Soul Raiders goes beyond this. Beyond a dot or a name or some dazzling art, the locations in Soul Raiders are places. At least that’s the aim. I’ve only been able to taste the amuse bouche of this multi-course feast. Bring on the rest of the meal. “

Geek Powa

“Il promet une expérience ludique proche de ce que le JDR peut offrir, ne serait-ce que par le parti pris d’une expérience collaborative très séduisante, dans le fond comme dans la forme.”

Pixel Adventurers

“Soul Raiders met vraiment l’aspect sur la coopération et c’est un de ses gros points forts. On aime cette optique du jeu de société qui vise à créer un groupe solide autour de la table qui discute stratégies et pousse à se préoccuper des autres joueurs. “

Unification France

“Ce Chapitre 0, donne déjà un bon aperçu de ce que ce jeu donnera : un excellent jeu narratif, aux règles simples, et à l’ambiance très immersive.”

Vin d’jeu

“Vous l’aurez compris, Soul Raiders est un pur jeu d’aventures où les héros que vous contrôlez vont voyager de lieu en lieu afin de découvrir les tenants et aboutissants de l’intrigue et de ses quêtes.”
