Unboxing Discover Lands Unknown, an exploration game where every copy is unique

Take a look inside my personal unique copy of  Discover Lands Unknown, a procedurally generated exploration board game from Fantasy Flight Games.

The thing that sets this game apart is that every single copy is unique. Watch to find out what terrain types my copy came with and to see the other components that come with this rather unique game.

Disclosure: Nothing to see here, I picked up my own copy of this as I wanted to see how exactly it worked.

Discover Lands Unknown Unboxing

From the publisher:

You awaken with a splitting headache and no idea of how you got here. The wilderness stretches in every direction, and something howls in the distance. Your quest for answers will have to wait; first, you need to survive. Will you help the others that are stranded here or will you save yourself at any cost?

When two to four players find themselves marooned in the harsh wilderness, you must cooperate and compete to search for water, food, and tools that will be essential to your very survival. But your adventure holds many secrets. Every copy of Discover: Lands Unknown is unlike any other in the world. A mix of environments, storylines, characters, locations, items, and enemies have been engineered to tell a story unique to every copy of the game thanks to an algorithm that ensures no two copies are alike. Your copy will contain various tiles, cards, and tokens, each pulled from a shared pool of components, and the combination will be different from every other copy in the world.

Since originally uploading this video my wife and I played through the first scenario and were pretty impressed. This game is much better than many reviews indicate, which I think is a problem of mixed expectations. I think people are expecting a legacy game when in fact this is an exploration game all about discovery and dealing with scarcity. 

The one great thing about this game flopping is that you can usually find copies at bargain prices!
