Description

In the heart of the sleeping city, there lies incredible wealth. The city gates are well guarded, but no one is watching what’s under their feet. The dead of night provides just enough cover for you to tunnel your way to untold riches and plunder the city from within. But you must act quickly, because a rival thief has the same plan.

In Prowler’s Passage, you and your rival burrow into the city through a network of underground passages to grab valuable items while attempting to gain control of key districts. Steal the best items, create the longest passages, and control districts to become the premier prowler!

On your turn, you must (1) place a passage, then (2) collect the tile where you placed your passage, and (3) move control markers for the districts adjacent to that passage. The tile you collect will either be an item tile, which are scored in sets during each scoring phase, or a shovel tile, which allows you to move control markers further. You might also steal statues and/or complete achievements on your turn.

Scoring occurs twice during the game. In each scoring phase, players gain wealth in these 5 categories:

  • PASSAGES: Gain 2 wealth for each section in your longest continuous passage.
  • STATUES: Gain 1 wealth for each statue you have stolen.
  • ITEMS: For each set of items of the same type that you have, you gain wealth. The bigger the set, the more wealth.
  • DISTRICTS: For each district you control (i.e., for which the control marker is on your side of the control track), you gain that district reward.
  • ACHIEVEMENTS: Gain wealth for the achievements you have claimed. (Final scoring phase only.)

Pros: A solid two-player experience that plays in under half an hour and fits in a small, portable package. Fits nicely in the niche of two-player games that do not feature direct conflict. No two games will play the same, due to variability in district tiles, item tiles, and achievements.

Prowler's Passage is the new game from the creator of Gold West and World's Fair 1893. You will take on the role of a thief plundering a city from beneath. Think Bugs Bunny on a crime spree, but with a sleek fantasy skin.
