Cyberpunk 2077: Gangs of Night City!

From the creators of Blood Rage and Zombicide, Cyberpunk 2077: Gangs of Night City is up on Kickstarter! This competitive board game throws you into the dangerous underworld of Night City. Take to the streets as you fight against rival gangs and establish your dominion over the streets.

To start the game, each player will choose one of four different gangs to play: the Tyger Claws, the Valentinos, Maelstrom, or the Voodoo Boys. Each gang has their own special abilities and play styles, so choose wisely!

Each gang is able to generate three different Gang Units: Solos are used to initiate firefights in the streets; Techies are used to construct drones; and Netrunners are used to explore the Net and uncover secrets. Create these units as you need them and establish your board state.

Need a bit more help? Then hire famous Edgerunners, both from the old TTRPG days and from the recent Cyberpunk 2077 video game. Pull in Johnny Silverhand, Jackie Welles, Rogue, or even V! If you need a job finished, these Edgerunners will get it done.

The more you control of Night City, the more Street Cred you will accumulate. The player with the most Cred by the end of the game wins!

Cyberpunk 2077: Gangs of Night City comes out in July, 2023! Back your copy here!

Septima!

Welcome to a world of witchcraft and whimsy! Septima is competitive strategy game about trying to build your coven and take over the role of the High Witch. Gather allies, transform into animals, and win Wisdom to complete your ascension!

Welcome to the town of Noctenburg, a small village rife with disease, dangers, and witch hunts. Each player will choose an animal that will become the symbol of their coven. Draw cards from the main deck that will represent your hand for that round. Your hand will have multiple actions that you can perform. From there, you will be able to brew potions, gathering lost items, and heal the sick to gain trust in the town.

This trust can be used to help gather members of your coven. Many of the town’s innocent people are on trial for being witches, and will be harmed if you do not intervene. Use your influence to have the town vote the person on trial as innocent so they will join your coven.

Is the town becoming suspicious of your seemingly mystical acts? Then hide in the forest by transforming into your animal symbol. While you will not have all of your arcane abilities in this form, you will be allowed to perform limited actions to help further your cause.

For helping the town and building your coven, you will gain Wisdom points. These points will be tallied at the end of the game in order to determine the winner. If you have the most Wisdom by the last round, then you win the game!

Septima comes out in May, 2023! Back your copy here!

Skyrise!

Take to the air in the upcoming board game, Skyrise! Build the sky city of your dreams as you face-off against three of your friends to bid and build your way to glory.

Start by choosing one of four different Visionaries to play as: Fritz Lang, the Expressionist; Vera Mukhina, the Socialist artist; Antonio Sant’elia, the Futurist architect; or Tamara Lempicka, the Art Deco painter. Each Visionary has their own special buildings and construction materials.

Every turn, each player will place a bid to construct buildings across the city. Depending on the location of the structure, you will build favour with one of four factions: the Philosophers, the Naturalists, the Artists, or the Inventors. The more favour you build with each faction, the more prestige that you will have by the end of the game. Each faction’s prestige multiplies over the course of the game.

You can also gain prestige by claiming Patron discs. These discs will grant you and your opponents different amounts of prestige depending on the Patron. Bluff and deduce your way through the different Patrons to gain as much prestige as possible.

Near the end of the game, you will be able to build your Wonder. This powerful build will immediately win the bidding round and claim you a healthy bit of prestige.

Construct your Wonder, build the tallest building on every island, and win the game!

Skyrise comes out in June 2023! Back your copy here!

44 BCE!

44 BCE is a strategy-betrayal board game where you and four of your friends attempt to conquer the recently fallen Rome. You will need to scheme and back-stab your way to the position of Imperium Maius, and declare Rome under your dominion!

Julius Caesar has just been assassinated. Rome is now up for grabs, and people are ready to take the throne as their own. Play as Agrippa, Brutus, Cleopatra, Mark Antony, or Octavian, and take power one senator at a time. Create temporary alliances, assassinate senators, and gather your legion of followers to bolster your claim as the new Emperor.

Aside from intimidation and fear, there are other ways to gain allies. Construct statues to figures of old and build massive structures to inspire the populous. Do favours for members of the social elite, the military, or other political figures to gain boons and assistance. Once you have assisted each faction enough, they will pledge allegiance to your cause. The more allegiance you have, the harder it is to take you out.

But be careful who you help and who you double cross – you never know who is levelling a blade at your back.

44 BCE comes out in August, 2023! Back your copy here!

Arcs!

The galaxy is yours for the taking! Arcs is an upcoming release by Cole Wehrle, Kyle Ferrin, and Leder Games. Explore planets, battle against other ships, and build a galactic empire to unite the stars!

The old imperium is dying out. You and the other players are the last remaining imperial agents, now responsible for trying to rebuild this fallen empire. With disease and violence overwhelming every planet in the known universe, it is up to you to achieve peace – or is it? Perhaps there is more that you can obtain if you disavow the empire entirely and set out on your own…

There are a number of actions you can perform over the course of your turn. You can travel between planets and zones; build structures on inhabited planets; excavate for resources; fight other players for territories; repair broken units or locations; and much more. Each action has a corresponding card that you can play to your board. Every player gets to play one card per turn, allowing either multiple actions for a low power card, or a single action for a high power card. Whoever has the highest power card at the end of the turn goes first the next round.

Gain the initiative, build your fleet, and take over the galaxy one planet at a time!

Arcs Board Game set-up

Arcs comes out in December 2023! Back your copy here!
