Gamelyn Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Heroes of Land, Air & Sea, their new 4-X board game for 1-6 players. Lead your faction to victory across the massive game board, warring with other players for resources and using 80 miniatures.
From the campaign:
Heroes of Land, Air & Sea is a 4X style board game (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate) for 1-6* players that plays in 2-3 hours (30m/player), and features 80 highly detailed miniatures and over 30 constructs! *Plays up to 6 players with the deluxe expansion. It is easy to learn, simple to play, and won’t take up your entire weekend. It is a Scott Almes design after all, designer of the Tiny Epic series.
Heroes of Land, Air & Sea is this simple: each player performs two actions per round. You can take a Capital Action, which could be followed by other players by using a peon. Or, you may take a Conquest action, which can be mustered to allow you to double down on your own actions. After each player has taken their two actions, players will collect resources based on the regions they control and then start a new round. This continues until a player triggers one of the four end game conditions: Expand, Exploit, Explore, or Exterminate!
In Heroes of Land, Air & Sea, Scott has us warring across a giant game board (26 x 26 in. that extends to 39 x 26 in.), sailing the great blue sea in boats that actually hold your minis!
The Kickstarter campaign is already over its funding goal and working on stretch goals. It’s set to run for another 25 days.
