Description

K2 is the second-highest mountain on Earth as well as the second deadliest. It’s known as the Savage Mountain, as it kills one person for every four who have reached the summit… And K2 has never been climbed in winter. Now your team stands in its shadow, ready to climb for fame and glory. You know the dangers of K2 all too well. Extreme weather with frequent and deadly storms, exposed, steep, tricky routes and lack of oxygen await you on your way to the summit. You will test your climbing skills to death, try to outsmart the ever-changing weather and always worry about the acclimatization of your 2 mountaineers. Also there are the other teams ready to take the glory for themselves.

K2 is a board game in which each player controls a team of 2 mountaineers, trying to climb to the summit of K2 and return before the other players’ teams and before the mountain kills them.

Every player uses an identical deck of cards. You use the cards to move your climbers on the route pictured on the gaming board, or to acclimatize the members of your team. You can also set up a tent and wait for better weather. You will have to choose your path carefully, as the other mountaineers can block your way, and watch the upcoming weather which can lower your acclimatization to 0, thus killing your climbers.

K2 is a hand management game for 1-5 players, with strong interaction and low luck factor, lasting up to 60 minutes. The theme is very well represented by the mechanics, including such elements as changing weather, lack of oxygen and death of the mountaineers. The result is an exciting match for gamers and non-gamers alike.

a bit finnicky but they look great on the base

You have to be gentle with them, the "flower" parts tend to clump together when removing from the paper but if you mix them in with other tufts from this range they look superb

Digibrilliant!

This game is different enough from the big three card games (Magic, Pokemon & Yu-Gi-Oh!) to be exciting to play even for a jaded old man like me. The art and lore are a wonderful nostalgia hit for those of is that grew up with the Saturday morning cartoon too. Great game, would highly recommend giving it a go :)

This your dice? Preetty dice!

Bought for 10 yr old daughter as she gets into D&D, my opinions are obviously irrelevant. She ADORES them. Rolls a lot of 20s. Major Dad win.
Thanks Athena for your patience and enthusiasm as both my children ummed and ahhed over their choices, really lovely supportive experience for them. My son later said 'Why can't all shops be like that?' And there you have it.
