The FOG – Escape from Paradise

The FOG is a competitive, challenging and thrilling game with 45 to 120 minutes playing time (depends on the chosen board) for 1 to 6 players. It is about villagers of a lonely island who are trying in panic to reach their boats at the beach to still escape the rapidly approaching mysterious and life-threatening FOG. The game combines tactical depth with high variability through the islanders many different movement options and a very variable setup.

You are playing an ancient Island Guardian coordinating the difficult path of several self-drafted islanders towards their boats – trying to save as many of them as you can. Each turn you use the available movement points for the various movement options like running, swapping, pushing, squeeze through, jumping, crossing to move your islanders forward.

So choose your islanders wisely and move them more effective and anticipatory then your fellow players. While the beach is packed and everyone is in panic, will you stay calm and assure that your islanders reach the rescuing boats before the FOG swallows them?
When the FOG reaches the shore the boats will depart and each player will receive or loose rescuing points in several categories. Then it will be known who collected the most rescuing points and wins against The FOG and the fellow players.

Zanay, the beautiful and only island in the Great Ocean and the home of many nations like the Wolxar, Abxaru, Tazul’u and Redyii has been threatened for weeks now by a mysterious giant dark wall of FOG. At first only far on the horizon to see, the FOG one day reached their home. Bit by bit it crawled over the island. What is in or behind The FOG is unknown. Nobody that ever went into The FOG – courageous warriors, wise elders and others – or who got “swallowed” by it, ever came back.

Except for one last village on the east coast by the Xappalo Bay the whole island has now been swallowed by The FOG. All nations have built hastily boats in this bay in the last weeks, to hopefully still escape the FOG. Their only hope is an ancient tale, which over generations and centuries has been passed on – their original home Yamagi, the magic land. Somewhere very far to the east it is supposed to lie.

They thought they had at least another two or three days in which they could embark organized. But suddenly The FOG gets faster and faster and everyone – leaders, elders, sailors, warriors and commoners – just start running in pure panic and regardless of others, to hopefully reach the boats somehow before the FOG reaches them.

Can you help Roxira, Dayark, Tumroq, Loxior and all the others?
Hopefully as many of them as possible can be saved. It all depends on you …
