Wreck Raiders uses vibrant and cute artwork to introduce players to dice drafting and worker placement games. And like all KTBG games, Wreck Raiders works equally well for adults and their children. One of the coolest parts about Wreck Raiders is that every action you take in the game rewards you. So you’re always getting something, sometimes even on other players’ turns! Wreck Raiders also features multiple paths to victory so your kids can follow a path that interests them or explore a different strategy in every game.

Game Overview

Wreck Raiders is an innovative dice-drafting worker placement system. Choose a die from the pool, then send one of your divers to any spot on the board with that number. But be warned: the spot you choose will help any diver in the spots next to you, whether they’re friendly or not. Will you risk letting a rival in on your haul to get that treasure you want, or can you find a way to grab yourself some extra loot? Display your treasures to build museum exhibits, or send them to your vault for huge scoring opportunities... Don’t forget to visit the beach nearby to gather washed-up baubles and spend them to build awesome aquariums.
