SeaFall: A Legacy Game
SeaFall is a 4X game (explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate) set in an "age of sail" world reminiscent of our world.
In SeaFall, the world is starting to claw its way out of a dark age and has begun to rediscover seafaring technology. Players take on the role of a mainland empire that consults with a consortium of advisors to discover new islands, explore those islands, develop trade, send out raiding parties, take part in ship-to-ship combat, and more. As in Risk Legacy and Pandemic Legacy, co-designed by Rob Daviau, SeaFall evolves as the game is played, setting their grudges into the history of the game and building a different narrative at every table as players open up the world.
SeaFall is a ‘Legacy’ board game designed by board game industry veteran Rob Daviau. A Legacy game is a concept developed by Rob. The idea behind a Legacy game is that the game ‘remembers’. As players play a Legacy game, the game board changes, cards are modified and sealed packs are opened revealing twists and turns in an epic storyline. Players will watch as their actions have permanent effects on the game world.
SeaFall is the third Legacy game designed by Rob Daviau. It was preceded by Risk Legacy and Pandemic Legacy Season 1. Both were important and very successful games that sent ripples through the board game community for their innovation and scope. Now, for the first time ever, instead of adding Legacy mechanics to an existing game, Rob has built a world and game around the Legacy idea.
