I love asymmetrical games. Since you’ve got different strategies, options, and win conditions, depending on which side of the table you’re on, you can really feel like you’ve actually god a couple games, as opposed to just the one. Well, a new card game that’s up on Kickstarter can give you that feeling. It’s called Fugitive.
One player plays as the Fugitive (I didn’t kill my wife! *jumps off the dam*), while the other plays the Marshal. As one would expect, the Marshal is looking to capture the Fugitive before the Fugitive can escape the city. Using a set of numbered cards, the Marshal must attempt to figure out where the Fugitive’s safe houses are. Of course, the Fugitive is looking to make sure those locations are kept secret, and is expected to bluff (as well as they can, anyway), in order to throw the Marshal off the track.
The Kickstarter campaign’s doing rather well. They’re closing in on 9x funded (if they haven’t already made it there by the time you read this). There’s still 23 days left to go.
