Review - Undo: Curse from the Past

This is a spoiler-free review. All photos are of setup and anytime I discuss a minor spoiler I will note it ahead of time so you can skip it. Undo: Curse from the Past is a game in which players are “Weavers of Fate”, time travellers aiming to prevent a sudden death by making changes to the past. Players do this by choosing from a selection of cards representing times and places and making decisions about how to influence an event described on the card. Currently, three Undo games have been released. The series appears to be modelling itself on the Exit and Unlock games, providing cheap, one-off adventures for a low price. This specific scenario sees players travelling to 20th century Germany and ancient Egypt.
