Skulk Hollow is a 2-player, asymmetric, combat game between the legendary Guardians and the Foxen clans of Børe. Fast tactical play and epic meeples!
40 minute play time
"Skulk Hollow is the game that I bought because we (my partner and I) can't play Root at its best with 2 players. The game consists of gorgeous, well-made components and a great asymmetric mechanics. One player takes on the role of the Foxen clan, who are the heroes and who are trying to thwart the gigantic Guardians. The Foxen have 4 different leaders to choose from, each of whom has a different special ability or rule. The other player will take on the role of one of the 4 Guardians, each of whom has a different deck of cards and different powers. The game plays out a lot like an abstract strategy game in some respects, especially insofar as setting up sequences of events several steps ahead of time. It's really easy to learn how to play too because the manual is so straightforward and streamlined. The game also takes exactly the amount of time to play advertised on the box. I'm also really into the fantasy theme and murderous, cute woodland creatures aspect.
Who is this for? Anyone looking for a good 2 player game with medium weight strategy. Also if you enjoy asymmetrical games but need one that is playable in under an hour, then this is the perfect fit.
Who is it not for? If you're not into theme-heavy games, then this one might miss the mark for you. However the strategy is not inherently linked to the theme, despite blending really well.
