Escape: The Curse of the Temple
Get ready for Escape: The Curse of the Temple, a real-time adventure game! Players must escape from a temple which is cursed before the temple collapses and kills one or more of the explorers!
Escape: The Curse of the Temple is played in real-time, with all players rolling dice and taking actions simultaneously. The CD Soundtrack adds to the real-time adventure by initiating dangerous countdowns and if players aren’t back in the safe room when time is up, they lose one of their dice.
The initial game board consists of a row of three square tiles, each showing a combination of two symbols. All of the explorers start in the central safe room and each player starts with a hand of five dice. Each die has five symbols: a cursed mask – this die is set aside when rolled; a golden mask – each such symbol counteracts two cursed masks; a red torch or blue key – these are used to enter rooms, access treasure, or activate gems; and a green adventurer, which appears twice on the die – you need these to move from room to room, and to activate some gems.
Once the exit tile is revealed, players can attempt to escape the temple by moving to that tile, then rolling a number of blue dice equal to the magic gems that haven’t been removed from the gem depot. When a player escapes, he gives one die to a player of his choice. If all players escape before the third countdown, everyone wins; if not, everyone loses, no matter how many players did escape.
Escape: The Curse of the Temple includes two expansion modules that can be used individually or together. With the “Treasures” module, some rooms contain treasure and when you reveal such a room, you place a face-down treasure chest on the tile. Roll the symbols on that chest tile and claim the treasure for use later: a key lets you teleport anywhere, a path lets you connect two rooms that otherwise have no door between them, and a medic kit heals all players instantly (putting black dice back into play). With the “Curses” module, some tiles “curse” players by forcing them to place one hand on their head, keep mute during play, or otherwise do what you wouldn’t want to do while escaping a temple!
Escape: The Curse of the Temple is recommended for 1-5 players, ages eight and up. Escape: The Curse of the Temple is played in real-time, alongside the included Soundtrack CD.
