How to Play Frostpunk: The Board Game – How to Game with Becca Scott
In Frostpunk: The Board Game, based on a bestseller video game by 11bit studios, up to four players will take on the role of leaders of a small colony of survivors in a post-apocalyptic world that was hit by a severe ice age. The gameplay is brutal, challenging, and complex, with society members issuing demands and reacting accordingly to the current mood, so every decision and action bears consequences.

I kick-started this game but haven't played it yet. After seeing the 5 minute setup video I now know that I never will.
I had no idea the game was going to have this kind of setup. There are many games that we are already tired of before even beginning. I wish they would make go games where setup is part of the game and is gradually built up organically as you play.
This is the best tutorial that I have seen for this game thus far! Nice work, and thank you!
This is the first time I'm watching any of your content.Absolutely fantastic presentation! I always prefer short rules presentations like this one.I do have one problem though. I had to restart the video several times as i got distracted by your brilliant smile 🙂I'll look for more of your videos in the future.
That's alot of set up for a gimmick. Was interested in this but now it's a hard pass.
Winter is coming…
I just lost the game
So excited to see this game finally featured on your channel! Such a concise breakdown of the setup and the general rules of play. I think this is exactly what our players have been waiting for! 💜
I just finished playing my first run! What timing! We lost all hope but it sure was fun lol
Is this in the new studio?
Thank you so much for making this! I was looking for something exactly like this that would give a high level overview of the rules and flow of the game. Can't wait to start playing this game 🙂
I would watch Becca read a spreadsheet.
And then go buy that spreadsheet.
Remember to Like or something little might get frozen
A lot of set up and a LOT of steroids each round. But after one playthrough it was surprisingly easy to keep track of. There is (good) theme in everything so things like cold, weather, death etc. just make sense.
I'm exhausted just watching the board get set up.
Video is great. Jumps right in to teaching with minimal preamble. Clearly presented and quality overview.
Awesome job. Great overview. I'm just putting the finishing touches to my full video today, which is slightly longer 🙂
So clearly presented – thanks!
Never heard of it but it sounds like my kind of thing. Great video.
Dare you to do a let's play!
Yesss! My first kickstarter for it arrived a month ago, can't wait to dig in! Thanks for the video!
Is it very luck-based as This War of Mine tabletop version?
To complicated 😀
Does the girl come with the game?
I'm trying to not buy this one i have too many boardies
but you are making me want to buy it becca
Thank you. This will be excellent for new players to get them oriented before play. There is a lot to the game. It's intimidating. But, it actually plays fairly well/smoothly. [First time I played it, we made it to round 5, playing a friend's copy.] I am a lot less worried about running a game myself thanks to this video. Keep up the good work.
