An intro level Eurogame you can get your family to play!
Seeking the Gift is a ~25 minute game for 2-6 players ages 8 and up.
Put your thinking caps on! You'll be leading the Wise Men on their journey to visit Herod's court, travel into Bethlehem, and present gifts of Frankincense, Gold, and Myrrh. Choose your course wisely, as game length varies, ending when Mary & Joseph reach the manger. Points are gained equal to the numbers on the spaces you occupy, and the player with the most points is declared the Wisest!
Cloth Scroll Game Mat with Wooden Dowels, 108 Journey Cards, 12 Decree Cards, 48 Wise Men Tokens in Six Colors, 8 Mary & Joseph / Inn Markers, 1 Caravan Card with Marker, Cloth Drawstring Bag, and the Rulebook, all in a durable, wrappable box.
Deluxe Edition Wooden Box
We hope to make lasting games, and we pledge to keep the highest manufacturing standards. Cards will be coated and textured heavy stock. The board will be printed on quality fabric and connected to hardwood dowels, weighty enough to hold down the unrolled scroll. Tokens will be cut from wood in the shape of travelers.
If you have family or friends that you'd like to introduce to better board games, we share your goal, and we hope that Seeking the Gift will help you accomplish it. Or maybe your extensive collection just has a hole in it, in which Seeking the Gift would fit snugly. Not smugly.
Playing the Game
Seeking the Gift was designed to be rewarding for the experienced game player while remaining approachable by everyone. This is accomplished by keeping turns simple, but offering meaningful decision in where and when you place your tokens. Learn how to play in this preview by The Dice Tower;
Seeking the Gift was designed by Trevor Cram. You met him in the introduction video. Some of his other titles include Super Showdown and Lemonade Stand. The game has been lovingly and thoroughly tested by players of all levels of gaming experience. A very special thanks to everyone who has helped improve it, many of whom are members of the Board Game Designers Guild of Utah. (Check 'em out, they're awesome!)
U.S. shipping is included in all pledge levels! Please add $10 for shipping to Canada and $15 for other international destinations.
