One of the most popular RPG series which has been adapted to several different systems as well as numerous versions, Rifts is a game that many of us have played at some point. But for the first time, it is coming to the tabletop as a board game. Rogue Heroes Publishing has launched a Kickstarter for the game.
From the campaign:
The Rifts® Board Game offers three distinct modes of play:
1. Campaign Mode: 1-5 players take on the roles of the Heroes of Lazlo, a group of valiant champions who defend the innocent and struggle to break the Coalition’s stranglehold on the ‘Burbs. And one, single player acts as the CS Mission Director, who strives to keep the peace in the violent, lawless slums and take down troublemakers like your heroes.
2. Skirmish Mode: Two players in pitched competition against each other’s rival squad. Pit the Heroes of Lazlo against the Coalition Army, or a squad of heroes against heroes, or CS forces against CS forces to see which commander is the superior leader.
3. Head to Head Mode: Two players do away with the board and miniatures to compete in a vicious, face to face card game to see who comes out victorious. A fun, fast, abstract card game that is easy to grasp and takes only 15-20 minutes. Can be played almost anywhere.
Heroes, can you defeat the forces of the Coalition States?
Coalition patriots, can you stamp out all resistance in the ‘Burbs?
