INKAS: The Legend, a new print and play board game promoting the Andean culture, offers hours of fun during this difficult time.
SANTA CLARA, CA, March 19, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — Millions of people around the world are practicing self-isolation and social distancing to keep safe during the coronavirus pandemic. To pass the time and keep boredom at bay, board games can be a great solution to keep the spirits up during this difficult time.
But what if you can’t go out and buy a new board game to play with your family? One great option is to download a “Print & Play” game. There are hundreds of free and paid print and play games on the web. All you need is a printer, scissors, and you are good to go.
Print & Play games are not published in a physical form. Instead, all the components are available in a digital format and are available for download. Players are expected to print all the pieces, cut them up, and build the game.
Building the game is part of the fun and there are companies that provide custom pieces such as tokens, cards, and specialty paper to help players build even better print & play games.
Pers today is pleased to announce that they are also entering the Print & Play market with the launch of “INKAS: The Legend”, a free board game based on the legendary history and mythology of the Inka Empire.
INKAS: The Legend is a strategy game for 2 to 4 players that transports them to a mystical time of spirits, monsters and dragons, where they must battle gods and enemy nations in their quest to be the first to find the magical place where the city of Cusco must be founded. Whoever founds Cusco will have dominion over the Tawantinsuyu: the four regions of the Inka Empire.
Inspired by the creationist myth of the Ayar siblings, this game brings focus to the descendants of the inhabitants of ancient Peru and the Americas. Pers’s goal is for this game, and the stories based on the characters from INKAS: The Legend, to offer an additional source of pride for people of Andean descent, especially to kids longing for “superheroes” based on their culture.
To stay in line with the objectives of INKAS: The Legend, the names of the characters and provinces present in the game are written in Quechua, the language of the Inkas which is still spoken by 10 million people in areas of Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Argentina, Colombia, Brazil, and Chile.
Quechua is an endangered language and UNESCO fears that, unless something is done about it, Quechua will become extinct within 30 years. With INKAS: The Legend we hope to bring some awareness to this language and help with its survival.
The Print & Play version of INKAS: The Legend is now available for free on bit.ly/getinkas, and in mid-2020 Pers will launch a Kickstarter campaign to fund a packaged version of this game with Inka warrior miniatures.
