dmNorth Plays… Atlantis Rising

On our Only Games channel, we attempt to get our table top board games off of our shelf of shame and share them with friends online.  These may not always be the newest board games, but it doesn’t mean that they do not deserve our attention.

This week, we brought Atlantis Rising to the virtual table top.

The board game crew of dmNorthTV returns to live stream their board game night live on Twitch. Atlantis Rising is a 1 to 7 player tabletop game, where you are placing your Atlanteans on the island continent of Atlantis in order gain the necessary resources to build the cosmic gate and excape before Atlantis falls into the sea. Are you brave enough to risk falling victim to flooding in order to gain better resources? Can we put the parts of the cosmic gate put together fast enough before the Misfortune Deck does us in? How are our swimming skills?

In this video, we play a 2 player gameplay session of the Atlantis Rising board game live on our Twitch stream. Tune in to see how if our pool floaties were helpful and how this tabletop board game translates to the online world of Twitch live streaming.

From the Publisher:  “The isle of Atlantis, your home, is sinking. Will you be able to save your people in time?

Atlantis Rising is a co-operative worker placement game in which you must work together with up to six other players to deploy citizens across your homeland, gathering resources in order to build a cosmic gate that can save your people. Workers placed close to the shoreline are more rewarding, but are more likely to be flooded and the actions lost.

Every turn, each player draws a misfortune card that will flood certain locations along the ever-shrinking Atlantis shoreline, or may otherwise work to undermine your efforts to save your people. So you must race to gather the necessary resources to build and power the gate, before the island disappears beneath the waves forever.

This edition contains all new art and graphic design, created to bring even more attention to the thematic setting of the game. The Athenians Attack phase has been replaced with the Wrath of the Gods phase, requiring more strategic planning and adding to the sense of urgency. Now, instead of placing workers in an Atlantean Navy, players must cooperatively decide to flood a set number of tiles at the end of each round. To further aid them in their task, Councilor player powers have been expanded and made more impactful, and the knowledge deck has similarly been revised and expanded. The variable gate components, once built, no longer offer one-time bonuses, but create new worker placement spots where players can send Atlantean workers to unleash actions to help save their island.
