K2 is the second-tallest mountain on Earth as well as the second deadliest. It's known as the Savage Mountain, as it kills one person out of every four who reach the summit... Now your team stands in its shadow, prepared to climb for fame and glory.
K2 is a board game where each player controls a team of 2 mountaineers, trying to climb to the summit of K2 and return before the other players' teams and before the mountain kills them. Every player has an identical deck of cards. You use the cards to move your climbers on the route shown on the gaming board, or to acclimatize the members of your team.
You can also set up a tent and stand by for better weather. You will have to select your path carefully, as the other mountaineers can block your way, and watch the upcoming weather which can lower your acclimatization to 0, therefore killing your climbers.
K2 is a hand management game for 1-5 players, with strong interaction and low luck factor, player around 60 minutes. The theme is represented by the mechanics, including such elements as changing weather, lack of oxygen and death of the mountaineers. The result is an thrilling match for gamers and non-gamers alike.
The box has, among other materials, a double-sided board with two different routes to the summit (easier and harder) and two sets of weather tiles (for summer and winter).
