Humans are a pretty resilient lot. If you try and fight us, we’ll fight back (generally speaking). So if an alien invasion were to try and succeed, it might go to some… odd lengths to make the going easy. For the Fenicious, they created a rather devious plan… they decided to bore us to death. But don’t worry, even then, humanity is fighting back. The nerds of the Earth aren’t going to give up their hobbies and tv shows so quickly. That’s the story behind Fanhunter: Urban Warfare, a new board game from Vesper-On that’s up on Kickstarter now.
In the game, players play as either the Resistance or as the Fanhunters (the police force fighting to rid the world of anyone who cared about their pastimes). The game is heavily scenario-driven, but it also comes with rules for turning your figures into a skirmish wargame. So it’s like getting a couple games in one. They’ve posted the bare basic rules for the board game on the Kickstarter page for you to check out as well.
The campaign just launched and is already 1/3 of the way to funding. They’re set to run for 24 days.
