Description Edit | History

In the year 2097, the entire Earth was enveloped in a cataclysmic shift in climate, plunging the globe into another ice age. Nearly 90% of the world’s population was eliminated, driving the survivors to band together into loose communities and tribes.

In Arctic Scavengers, you are the leader of a small tribe of survivors. Resources, tools, medicine, and mercenaries are all in scarce supply. You and your tribe are pitted against up to four other tribes in a fight for survival. Build up your tribe, skirmish against other players head-to-head, or even bluff your way to victory.

The player with the largest tribe at the end of the game is declared the winner!

3 Cover for a Pro Dual-Deck box - Arctic Scavengers
I was inspired by monsieurtasse's cover for Machi Koro: "Resized cover if you want to store the game in an ULTRA PRO Dual-Deck Box and make it pretty!" The ultra pro dual deck box (standard) fits the entire game minus the play mats (useless) and manual (print out one of the quick guides from here and fold it up). They should really make these deck boxes an industry standard for these kinds of games.
