The Refuge is a strategy board game where you have to survive a zombie apocalypse.

This is the year 2033. Wars led to chemical reactions and people started transforming into undead creatures. Everything is falling apart and the earth s shattering. Is this the end of humanity? Maybe not. There have been rumors of a hidden refuge, which may be the last chance for humanity. However, they have limited room and short supplies. Only the first to make it there will stand any chance of survival.

Your goal in The Refuge is to be the first to find a Key and reach the Refuge. You are going to collect Supply Cards during your journey, which will be of great significance to your survival, but you must be careful not to linger too long. At the same time, you will have to prevent other survivors from reaching the Refuge before you do. Be the first one to get there and win the game. If the supply deck is exhausted before anyone manages to get there, only the survivor closest to the Refuge will be rescued.

The Refuge is a fun, easy-to-learn game for all skill levels and takes great resourcefulness and cunning, while it offers a variety of strategies for the different types of players. It has been launched on Kickstarter and has been planned for release in late 2016.

I got to know the world of board games along with NinjaBoy several years ago. So we both ended up getting hooked on playing, until we finally decided to create this website, so that boardgamers from all over the world will gather around. I am a translator and a copywriter. Making this site, as well as working on it every single day, has been a great experience and we are happy to know that it has brought together people who share the same love for board games. So, choose your character, shuffle your deck and roll your dice, for there are some board game stories here to explore!
