What's Eric Playing

Rosetta: The Lost Language is a co-operative language game for two or more players.

In the game, players take on the role of Experts trying to understand the ancient written language of the Author, a player who represents a lost individual, community, or civilization. The Author defines the Meaning of an Inscription that is written in a fictional symbolic language and inspired by a scenic Location card. The Experts must figure out what that Meaning is—if they don't, the language is lost to history. The Experts choose a word as a guess, and the Author "translates" the guess into the same symbolic language as the Inscription by making up new symbols, informing their understanding of the writing system. This goes back and forth, with the Experts getting to use special Abilities to give the Author new, creative ways to point them in the right direction. The Experts have 10 turns to correctly guess the Meaning and save the language of the Author from being forgotten forever. The number of guesses represents a score, with players seeking the lowest score possible.
