Lost Ones




Choose Your Own Story Path

Assume the role of a character who has been kidnapped by Fae and taken to the Otherworld. You must explore this magical realm of dreams, evade recapture and discover a way home. Lost Ones is a board game that can be played solo or cooperatively with up to four players.

The game is played over a set number of successive Phases, where the player can perform different actions:

* Explore a new area by placing a map tile, moving there and reading the introduction of an encounter in the Story Book

* Perform an action in a story encounter

* Move to an adjacent map tile that has already been placed

* Activate Boon cards

When investigating a map tile, the character experiences a story encounter and may have to make choices on how to proceed. An encounter often requires a player to use one or more Ability cards from their Hand that matches the difficulty level of the encounter. Success could mean learning more valuable information, overcoming an obstacle or even gaining Boon cards that grant magical powers and mythical relics. Exploring this realm of dreams may result in experiencing a terrifying Bane, which will hinder progress and potentially lead to the character's doom.

The player must locate and find a way to open one of several Gateways to get home. This must be accomplished before running out of time, having an empty Hand or being caught by Fae sent to hunt the character. Careful use of resources, piecing together clues and acquiring special Boon cards are key to winning the game. Based on the choices made by the player, there are also a dozen different story endings with their own epilogues.



Gordon Alford has been an avid gamer since the ‘90s and loves role playing, card and board games. His favorites are Vampire: The Masquerade, Werewolf: The Apocalypse and Legend of the Five Rings. He also plays massively multiplayer online games with a heavy focus on realm vs. realm, under the call-sign “Kiamar”.

Of Dreams & Shadows is a fully self-funded project that has been in development since early 2014. Gordon’s goal is to create a cooperative board game with an interactive story and strong roleplaying experience. He has recruited the artistic talents of Matt Forsyth and Steven Preisman to bring his game world to life.

They hit it off with Greenbrier Games at Spiel Essen 2016, and are now partnering together for a North American release.
