Alternate Names: Scavengers

Description:

In the year 2097, the entire Earth was enveloped in a cataclysmic shift in climate, plunging the globe into another ice age.

Nearly 90% of the world's population was eliminated, driving the survivors to band together into loose communities and tribes.

In Arctic Scavengers, you are the leader of a small tribe of survivors. Resources, tools, medicine, and mercenaries are all in scarce supply. You and your tribe are pitted against up to four other tribes in a fight for survival.

Build up your tribe, skirmish against other players head-to-head, or even bluff your way to victory.

The player with the largest tribe at the end of the game is declared the winner!

Additionally, the game introduces alternative victory paths, new mercenaries, new tools, and the addition of the "engineering schematics" deck.

This expansion does not dramatically alter the core game mechanics or objectives. All cards and mechanics from the original game are involved, the contested resources still represent the game timer, and the winner is still determined based upon amassing the largest tribe. …
