April 14th 1912, 11.40 pm: in the dark and cold waters of the Atlantic ocean, the transatlantic RSM Titanic, during it’s first journey, sinks after a crash against an iceberg. The block of ice opens a fall in the right side of the hull and after two hours and forty minutes the Titanic is doomed.
After 100 years of those happenings, Sir Chester Cobblepot™ offers a refined board game that celebrates the unforgivable heroism and determination of the passengers of the english transatlantic: our main characters will be the survivors of the last lifeboat lowered into the water, the collapsible D.
Collapsible D™: The Last Minutes of Titanic is the first project from Chester Cobblepot. The idea comes from the mind of the italian author Gianluca Santopietro, already well known to have signed other games.
In this game the players will be on board of the Titanic during the night of april 14th 1912, when at 11.40 pm the ship collided with an iceberg, sinking in the ocean at 2.20 am of april 15th. Each turn represent 10 minutes of that lapse of time.
Each player, from 3 to 6, controls a passenger of each Class and a member of the Crew. Each character has a different starting point, trying to recreate the exact location they were on the ship, thanks to a historical research lead by the author, in cooperation with historian expert on Titanic facts like Claudio Bossi. Thanks to a very intuitive movement system, players will move their passengers through the ship, trying to reach the lifeboats on the dock.
Meanwhile, the water floods fast and the risk of drowning is very high. Each saved passenger will grant victory points, so the player with the highest score will win. Easy, touching and fascinating are three adjective that can be used to described Collapsible D™: The Final Minutes of Titanic.
A game to be played with the family or with friends: the drama of the happening is dealer with respect and tries to be very historical accurate, like other products based on the Titanic.
The game is fast, never too tiring, thanks to a system based on a fixed number of turns.
