Greater Than Games Announces ‘Legends of Sleepy Hollow’

Solve the mysterious disappearance of Ichabod Crane in this new board game!

From the makers of Spririt Island, Lazer Ryderz, and Fate of the Elder Gods. Legends of Sleepy Hollow comes from designers Ben Pinchback and Matt Riddle – they also created best-selling Fleet, Eggs & Empires, and Wasteland Express Delivery Service.

In Legends of Sleepy Hollow players take on the roles of four residents – undertaker Jeremiah Pincke, minister Elijah Kappel, Revolutionary War veteran Matthias Geroux, and tanner Emily Van Winkle – in a cooperative, miniatures-based, campaign game full of secrets and twists. During the game, players will use an action pool to move about, investigate, interact with their environment, or unleash powerful attacks and abilities that are unique to each character. Once selected, however, these abilities will be unavailable until that character’s action pool has emptied – a process that becomes more complex as that character gains fear.

Players will have to work closely together to overcome their fear, unravel the mysteries of the glen, and become true Legends of Sleepy Hollow.

The project has some great artists on board to help players really get into the game.

    If I should look into this. The wife may enjoy it for the art and theme.

      Have you looked into Malifaux?

      • Severius_Tolluck

        She doesn’t do wargames, or skirmish games(although she did have me paint her a collection of Circle figs for hordes). I played Malifaux since it started. This is a co-op board game, much more up her ally. It is also during the late Baroque early romantic period and not late Victorian early Edwardian period, again which is more her style. Thanks for the recommendation though.

          You are totally right. I tried to introduce ma’h wife to wargames with 7th edition WH40k… she didn’t like it, though she liked the art and history. I presented Malifaux to her and she loved it, way much easier; she chose Lady J and she’s been kicking arses since then, including mine.
