Asmodee is bringing French publisher Matagot’s dice drafting game Bahamas to the U.S. in June.

In Bahamas, a gang of successful robbers plans their getaway to the islands of that name, but they didn’t count the parachutes correctly.  This is a problem when the plane goes down, and the scrabble for survival begins.  Each round, a set of dice is rolled to determine which actions are available.  Each player save one gets to choose a die and take an action, and the odd man out starts the next round.

When the plane crashes at the end of the game, the player who wasn’t able to get a chute loses out, unless they turn out to be an FBI agent in disguise and they can land it safely and arrest the others.  If not, the survivor with the biggest share of the loot wins the game. 

Bahamas comes with 10 character sheets, 60 cards, and 7 dice, featuring artwork by Piero (Ghost Stories, Mr. Jack).  The game was designed by Nicolas Normandon (City of Horror) for 3 to 8 players, ages 10 and up.  Games take about half an hour.  MSRP is $19.99.

Matagot teamed up with The Op (USAopoly) for its Dungeon Academy game, also releasing this summer (see “Graduate with Glory from ‘Dungeon Academy’”).
