Above and Below

2 - 4 Players

90 mins Playing Time

Ages 13+


Your last village was ransacked by barbarians. You barely had time to pick up the baby and your favorite fishing pole before they started the burning and pillaging. You wandered over a cruel desert, braved frozen peaks, and even paddled a log across a rough sea, kicking at the sharks whenever they got too close, the baby strapped tightly to your back. Then you found it! The perfect place to make your new home. But as soon as you had the first hut built, you discovered a vast network of caverns underground, brimming with shiny treasures, rare resources, and untold adventure. How could you limit your new village to the surface?


A strategy game with Choose your own Adventure storytelling elements to it, Above and Below puts you in charge of a growing village and asks you to make it as prosperous as possible; as the village chief, it’s your job to make good use of each villager’s set of skills. Choose wisely between building up your village above and below ground or risking your villagers to delve deeper into the lucrative, but dangerous, depths.
