Published in cooperation with Kosmos, Mayfair Games is shipping Journey to the Center of the Earth. This board game takes 2-4 players on the adventure of Jules Verne’s classic novel. The game plays in three phases, covering descent into the Icelandic crater, traversing the subterranean lake, and riding a lava flow out the volcano. With the right equipment and a dose of luck, fossils and other artifacts found along the way will survive the trip. Journey to the Center of the Earth incorporates the three adventurers from the novel, but rather than assigned an individual character, players take turns in control of all three. Adding to the challenge is the fact that the three figures travel separately during the descent but must share a single raft across the lake and up the volcano. Mayfair estimates the playing time for this game at 60-75 minutes.
