“I don’t want to live on this planet anymore.”
One of my favorite lines from Futurama, and one that’s been thrown around a lot lately. Well, whatever might be going on in the world, I’d say that an impending meteor strike would certainly cause someone to want to flee the planet. That’s just what’s happening in Abandon Planet, a new board game from the creator of The Resistance that’s up on Kickstarter now.
In the game, players are looking to build rockets and get off the Earth before a meteor strike. However, nobody has all the pieces they need to get their rocket going, so you’ll have to team up with others in order to get gone. However, everyone is mostly looking out for themselves, and alliances only last as long as you have what the other person needs. Plus, each round, only one player knows just where the meteor will head next. Deciding who to share that information with, and whether they want to share the actual information or just get someone out of their way, plays a pretty big part. Will you be able to escape Armageddon?
The Kickstarter campaign is about 2/3 of the way to being funded with still 16 days left on the clock.
