Gone Caving! is a card game for 2 to 6 people in which players of all ages explore a cave. Earn points for discovering passages, observing animals, and finding incredible geological formations. Overcome challenges by squeezing through tight passages or being prepared for an impending emergency. A hand of the game plays quickly, but the game is best played for several rounds.

Gone Caving! started off as a dream to introduce the world of caving to more people and what better way to do it than by spending time having fun with friends? We wanted to share parts of the beautiful underground world and the people who explore it with our friends in a fun and playful way.

The game has been designed, play-tested, and professionally illustrated, and we are shipping now! Our team has decades of caving experience and we are very excited to share Gone Caving! with the world. A portion of the proceeds from each deck sold go to the National Speleological Society (NSS) to support cave preservation and education and give back to protect caves for future generations.

The game will be played via a paid program called Tabletop Simulator, which is not free, but it will be worth your time if you haven’t already ordered a Gone Caving! card game, on Monday of the Virtual Convention from 8 to 10 p.m. (This software costs $19.99 unless you get it when it goes on sale, so watch for that!)
