The hankerer is still waving towards me – his severed left arm stuck on my front bumper. I didn’t think he’d be such a salt-brain, he didn’t even try to dodge my vehicle.
My car is in bad shape, the front left wheel is vibrating strangely, the bodywork is in pieces, and the fender is loose. I’ll probably have to replace it…
She always winds up here with me like she doesn’t have any friends. She’s a normal girl – her parents should’ve regretted ditching her near our settlement, this water distiller plant built adjacent to a small saltwater pond.
Probably she doesn’t know it, but she’s been pretty useful for me…
I wake up to the familiar rattling of precipitation foils. I appreciate this noise because it means that it’s windy today – and wind is our only ally in the Saltlands. The few drops of dew it brings is invaluable. It also eases the burning heat a bit, which is already enough to invigorate one in the desert.
But that’s not the only reason I like it…

Dice Tower review with Zee Garcia
Gray Board Gamer’s playthrough Series
“Feels like a well designed game”
“It’s clever, it really self balances, it’s got lots of clever little things going on in it.”
“One of the characters looks like violent mother Teresa; you can’t argue with a game with that in [it], can you?”Mike Barnes
I love that you picked a bright design for the boards, cards etc, fits so well into the Saltlands desert theme.
I love post-apocalyptic themes but they are always very grunchy, dark and worn in the design, this feels so fresh. You can just feel the sun burning over the desert by looking at the design of the game!Johan, a Saltlands fan
