The history of that doomed expedition is shrouded in whispered rumour. A group of adventurers set out by riverboat, deep into a remote jungle, in foolish pursuit of fortune and glory. The battered journal of the lone survivor, said to contain fantastical scribblings of ancient secrets and terrible things awakened, was soon consigned to the sanatorium furnace.

Ancient Terrible Things is a casual press-your-luck pulp horror dice game for 2-4 players ages 14 and up, in which you play the role of an intrepid adventurer exploring a dark jungle river for Ancient Secrets. Each turn, you will travel to a Fateful Location and attempt to overcome an Ominous Encounter using a combination of rolled dice, as well as tokens and cards. Succeed and you add the Encounter to your Ancient Secrets score pile. Fail and you unleash a Terrible Thing, which counts against your score at the end of the game.
