By  | 


Asmodee announced a new board game from Unexpected Games called 3000 Scoundrels. This competitive engine-builder will see players crafting the scoundrel they can in order to bluff their way to the win. It’s set in an alternate Wild West which looks entertaining and utilizes clear cards to build up your posse so they can be better at stealing technology left by a mysterious man known as the Traveler. The game supports 2-4 players.

In 3000 Scoundrels, 2-4 players enter an alternative history Wild West and assume the roles of rival leaders attempting to steal precious technology left behind by a mysterious man known only as the Traveler. At the end of the game, the player with the most tech will determine the fate of the American Frontier. Clear cards are used to create up to 3000 scoundrels, each with a unique name, artwork, and ability. Up to 50 scoundrels are used in each game, ensuring that every play-through is different!

Players will need to draft scoundrels that synergize with their strategy and use them to build an engine to ensure victory. Part of the strategy involves misdirecting opponents and choosing when to bluff. But, if players are caught cheating, they are penalized. 3000 Scoundrels includes 60 clear job cards, 50 trait cards, 4 leader sheets, 28 Poker cards, 8 strategy cards, 1 game board, and more.

3000 Scoundrels was designed by industry veteran Corey Konieczka who began in the field with Fantasy Flight Games and has worked on amazing games like Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game, Star Wars: Rebellion, and Mansions of Madness: First Edition. Talking about the story behind 3000 Scoundrels, Konieczka said:

3000 Scoundrels was created from my love of card games, engine building, and bluffing. It started as a deconstruction of what a ‘card’ is in a game, and it tries to turn the genre on its head. I really think this game will resonate with hobby gamers all over the world.
