FPC Files: Emery is a two to four player board game in the vein of Arkham Horror, or Camp Grizzly, focused on cooperation, coordination, and sharing of resources.
FPC Files: Emery's main objective is stopping a death worshiping cult, The Chosen of Vexarius, before they can summon their planet-eating god. Players will assume the roles of townspeople working desperately to save each other, their town, and the world.
Players are encouraged to step into the role of the character they have selected to play, to think like they might, to act like they might act. Players will complete one of four unique objectives by moving through the world, fighting enemies, and gathering tools, weapons, and allies before the death meter reaches 100.
