Description:

The Nevada desert is a hot place, usually a hot place cooking up a whole mess of nothin'. But lately, lots of strange things goin' on in those wide open spaces.

Didn't think nothin' about it 'til the men in suits came visitin' a couple days back. A few black trucks just hurtlin' in and out of town, stayin' just long enough to grab 'em a cup of coffee before headin' on down the road.

About that time the rumblin' started. But it weren't no earthquake. No, it was them Worms burrowin' through the sands worse than Shep digging for a bone. W.O.R.M.s they call 'em: Weapons of Remote Massacre. Cross-breeds. Government experiments gone wrong.

Some got these tentacles, poppin' up and clawin' at ya' outta nowhere. While others got these big, long suckers like an eighteen wheeler screamin' out of the flats: 'cept with centipede legs and slime.

A real mess. Kinda thing that'll make you change your drawers.

I don't wanna bore you with this old man's yammerin' on. Long story short, now those government men over at Area Fifty-somethin' want us to grab them Worm Eggs.

Said they pay well. Real well. That's what Megan's been sayin' at least. Hell, if we can kill a few of them nasty buggers somehow, they might catch a hefty price too. If we don't die tryin'.

Terror Below is a game of government experiments gone wild in the Nevada desert. The faster you move, the more vibrations you make, attracting the attention of the vicious worms underground.

Navigate the difficult terrain to collect valuable worm eggs and deliver them to locations around town to claim bounties. If you're feeling lucky, collect items and weapons to go hunt 'em.

The goal of Terror Below is to be the first player to score 20 victory points (VP) by collecting worm eggs and delivering them to locations around town - or alternatively, by hunting down and killing those vicious worms.

During the game, your squad of unlikely heroes will visit locations around the small desert town to find bounties, scavenge for weapons, and try to survive as you distract the worms. Eventually, those worms will attack. If you are in their path of destruction, you better be prepared for a fight!

Object of the Game

The goal of Terror Below is to be the first player to score 20 Victory Points (VP) by collecting Worm Eggs and delivering them to Locations around town. Or alternatively, by hunting down and killing those vicious Worms. …



2-player Changes

To allow for a more dynamic and exciting 2-player experience, between each player's turn they add a Vehicle card to a random Worm.

This extra Distraction may cause a Worm to attack or potentially disrupt a player's perfect plans. Each turn will have a new 4th step: Roll for a Worm.

Roll for a Worm

After you have completed your normal turn, and before resolving Worm attacks, roll 1 coordinate die.

The Terror zone is marked with 3 sets of numbers that indicate which Worm is affected by the roll (1-2, 3-4, 5-6). …



Your bandaged hand grips the rusted metal of your vehicle as you slowly lift yourself to your feet.

The ground trembles once again, but this time you brace your boots against the torn and sweltering concrete. The ruined buildings angle gnarled against the setting sun.

Suddenly it is blotted out by an explosion of sand and rock. Against the swarm of sand, through slitted eyes and fingertips, you witness the destructive force towering above the desert.

The hideous Worm lets out a high-pitched screech that turns your stomach. Its centipede arms flex in waves.



Common Card Explanations:

Boots

When you play a Boots card, you will also play another Vehicle card from your hand. You gain the displayed number of additional Action Points only and then discard the card.

Do not perform this card's special ability or add it to the Terror zone. Note: You cannot play a 7 card to receive the additional bonus.

Also, you cannot Pick Up All Eggs with your initial 2 actions and use the extra Action Points to take more actions. …
