Description

The Initiative — a unique co-operative board game of story, strategy, and code-breaking — lets players take on the role of teenagers in 1994 who have found a mysterious board game called “The Key”. Not only will they play The Key, but players will help the teens through a pivotal chapter of their lives by following a series of missions linked together via an interactive comic book.

The game’s campaign is broken into a number of chapters, each taking 30-60 minutes to complete and each starting with you reading a page of the comic book. The story advances even if players fail a mission, but winning may provide a reward in the future. Each chapter builds on the knowledge and story from previous chapters, weaving narrative, code-breaking, and mystery into one thrilling game experience.

Q & A

Are there any special rules for solo gamers? I play exclusively in solo and I want to make sure the experience does not suffer. Thank you for your time. Solo Board Gaming Knight (YouTube) Sergio Echevarria asked on December 6, 2021

This is a solo game, as in one person playing the co-op role. It's completely solo-able, though like many mystery-type games more than one person working on a mystery often bring different ideas. Personally, I enjoy seeing how well I can do against the game. --Eric
