'Nine Arches' is an Upcoming Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Board Game

— September 21, 2022 — Life-Stages
'Play Nine Arches' launched a campaign on Indiegogo for its upcoming board game 'Nine Arches.' This is a choose-your-own-adventure-style board game that was designed by a New York Times bestselling author teamed up with a Fortnite game designer from Epic Games.

Nine Arches seeks to activate players in ways that traditional board games do not. Essentially, the game challenges players to overcome real-life trials as instructed by the playing cards and board pieces. Play Nine Arches stated that these trials will challenge players to "summon the courage to do things that scare them, crush their limits, and chase their dreams."

The game blends Tarot elements with its board game, creating a fate-defying title that is sure to engage all types of players. In fact, the game has been touted as 'Cards FOR Humanity,' due to its uplifting, engaging nature.

Nine Arches releases on October 15th, 2022, on Indiegogo and on Play Nine Arches' website. There are various packages available.
