Above and Below

RVM009

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.

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? You immediately start organizing expeditions and building houses underground as well as on the surface.

With any luck, you'll build a village even stronger than your last-- strong enough, even, to turn away the barbarians the next time they come knocking.

Above and Below is a mashup of town-building and storytelling where you and up to three friends compete to build the best village above and below ground. In the game, you send your villagers to perform jobs like exploring the cave, harvesting resources, and constructing houses. Each villager has unique skills and abilities, and you must decide how to best use them. You have your own personal village board, and you slide the villagers on this board to various areas to indicate that they've been given jobs to do. Will you send Hanna along on the expedition to the cave? Or should she instead spend her time teaching important skills to one of the young villagers?

A great cavern lies below the surface, ready for you to explore-- this is where the storytelling comes in. When you send a group of villagers to explore the depths, one of your friends reads what happens to you from a book of paragraphs. You'll be given a choice of how to react, and a lot will depend on which villagers you brought on the expedition, and who you're willing to sacrifice to succeed. The book of paragraphs is packed with encounters of amazing adventure, randomly chosen each time you visit the cavern.

At the end of the game, the player with the most well-developed village wins!

Très bon jeu. Les règles sont simples, mis le jeu offre beaucoup de possibilité en terme de stratégie. Seul bémol, même en parlant bien anglais, le livre d'exploration peut être ardu à lire ce qui ralenti cette partie essentielle du jeu.

    L'univers et le travail graphique de ce jeu sont très réussis, le matériel de bonne qualité donne envie de jouer. Above and Below est un bon jeu pour découvrir les jeux de gestion sans se prendre la tête. Pour les amateurs de gestion pure, cependant je ne vous recommande pas du tout ce jeu (part de hasard dû au dés et aux choix que l'on doit faire dans les explorations dont l'issu est parfois aléatoire). En jouant à Above and Below mieux vaut oublier la course aux ponts de victoire et se plonger dans l'ambiance qui fait tout le sel du jeu.

    Ce jeu donne une bouffée d'air au genre gestion de ressources. Le coté narratif est très réussi et immersif, si on maîtrise bien l'Anglais. Les mécaniques sont vites assimilées et le jeu est fluide, ce qui le rend jouable avec un large public. Petit bémol dans les choix d'explorations: je ne vois pas l'intérêt d'indiquer le score exact à atteindre aux dés pour réussir. Ca casse un peu l'ambiance puisque on fait son choix non en fonction de l'histoire mais de l'espérance de gain...soit un bête calcul.

    Un très bon jeu qui mérite que l'on s'y attarde. Le côté gestion est très simple et logique et le côté exploration raviront les aventuriers. :) Bon, perso, je me suis fait racketter plusieurs fois donc allez-y à plusieurs et avec de l'argent. :)

    Un Hit, beau, original, très immersif, mais il faut prendre le temps de traduire le "livre des rencontres" qui vous plonge vraiment dans l'action.

    Un jeu sublime rempli d'aventures!!! Il est bien dommage qu'aucun éditeur francophone se penche sur la traduction...
