We're funded! Thanks for getting involved everyone. If you missed out on the FREE Brikwars community card pack (by not PMing me with your order) they'll be an opportunity later on to get the cards.
Thanks again to everyone who got involved!
Hey Brikwars people, I’m excited to share with you something that I’ve been working on for the last few years. It’s a brand new, original board game borne from a love of Brikwars. If it wasn’t for Mike Rayhawk or you guys, I wouldn't have designed my very own board game.
The game is called Mothership. It mixes the concepts of miniature wargaming with a traditional board game. It balances chance with skill. It simplifies dice wargaming while keeping the strategy. Most of all, it’s fun.
Print & Play
You guys are the first to see the print and play version. There are some changes some to parts of the game, but it plays exactly the same. BYO Dice.
I want you guys to be involved. I want to get exclusive cards made just for our community. What do I mean?
In my game, aside from the usual move and attack stuff you’re used to, players can shake things up with action cards. Action cards that add attack power, increase movement that kind of thing.
How to Play
Any questions have or suggestions, I’d love to hear from you!
What I want from YOU:
I want you guys to come up with card ideas / themes that can be Brikwars related. Take inspiration from Brikwars lore, stories, anything you want really.
To get an idea of the kind of cards I have at the moment, have a look at this link. You guys have already come up with some great ideas so far! Just so we don't double up, here is the full list of current cards.
NOTE: The game in it's current form is finished and more importantly balanced. These cards you lovely people will help design will be only for Brikwars forum members for our own titillation and inside jokes. That said, to get an idea of how the game plays, see the following videos:
