In The Cave, a board game from K2 author Adam Kałuża, players take on the role of a speleologist team tasked with exploring a newly discovered cave.
Players start from a base and explore a cave, tunnel after tunnel, effectively building the board (the cave). They have to overcome steep descents, underground lakes, and tight squeezes. They will be given a chance to admire the wonders of the underground, like halls full of stalactites. To make it all possible they must take the right supplies with them, like ropes and oxygen. The cave differs every game, so players have to be prepared for everything or they will lose time.
Players earn points for exploring different tiles: underwater, wondrous, descents, and so on, but to win they'll need to acquire bonus prizes for exploring the most tiles of each type. This makes decision-making during trips very difficult. When the cave is fully explored, the player who made the biggest effort in the most spectacular way wins the game.
