A Board Game With Skin Suits

Okay, look, I know I said that I would only do a board game thing once and then go back to the D&D side of the playground. But I took one look at this project and I just couldn’t pass up a board game with a premise like this. Demented premises are very much my thing.

And nothing says demented like rotting in Limbo and fighting over a human suit.

“If I don’t gotta face you can trust…Don’t worry, I got some spares in back!”

SkinQuest is a 1-4 player board game that puts you in the shoes of lost souls with unfinished business. The solution? Slip past Limbo’s bouncers with a skin suit available at your local merchant. The problem? There’s only one.

Dad jokes? In MY board game?!
“What? You’d rather we go out in our boo-thday suits?”

So, your main goal is to get enough plasma coins to buy the one available skin suit before your opponents can. But in addition to your fellow ghosts possibly snatching the disguise before you, the board you circle also carries the threat of enemy encounters. In order to defeat whatever cartoony ghoul that challenges you, your dice roll has to meet or beat the number on its card. Failure means losing precious plasma coins, and losing all of them means you die.

But wait! You’re already dead! And yes, that means dropping to zero coins doesn’t kick you out of the game. By challenging a player to a dice throw-down, any downed player can potentially reenter the game with half of their opponent’s coins.

The art also being a massive draw, it’s a huge surprise that this game has yet to reach its campaign goal on Gamefound. Thankfully, you’ve got until May 11 to commit spooky identity theft.
