Unsolved Mysteries: El Ancora de Fuego is a narrative adventure that can be played alone or in cooperative of survival, terror and mystery.
It's 2018. William Carter is a Brooklyn detective who reopens and investigates old unsolved archived cases, whose evidence were chilling, inconclusive or potentially supernatural.
In the case that Carter is currently investigating several mental patients escaped from an asylum in Japan in 1902 after experiencing demonic activity. Everything becomes darker as the investigation goes deeper and he finds evidence that the yökai, demonic spirits and shadows, are real and live amongst us. The players will be the protagonists of Carter's case and will join him on his journey through the darkness to discover the truth.
All the decisions made throughout the adventure will influence the development and the end of it. The game is designed to be played several times, since in a single game you can't discover all its content. The players will choose two characters at the beggining from the three initials, being the story different according to who they play it with and unlocking other characters as the story goes on.
Each chapter of Unsolved Mysteries: El Ancora de Fuego is played on a
board, using cards to represent places, interactions, objects, traits and Yökai, and
six special Kami Dice whose result when rolled will determine the possible options
to be made, each of them written in the Adventure Book.
During their turn, players can explore and interact with their surroundings, move to other locations, use items and defend themselves or flee from the Yökai that will appear. Players should keep in mind their mental state, because the darkness lurks and they may fall into a nightmarish state in which their true personality is revealed. And in critical situations they can use the rare Fate Tokens to change the course of events ... or avoid death.
The story goes through several chapters, some of them optional, more than 100 pages of different interactions and more than five different endings to find!
