No, Planet Rush is not one where Geddy Lee is supreme overlord and everyone listens to Tom Sawyer and Subdivisions as planetary anthems… though that would be pretty cool. No, it’s a new game from Victory Point Games with rules by legendary game designer Reiner Knizia. It’s also up on Kickstarter now.
In the game, a new planet has been discovered and various corporations are looking to colonize it. Players are in charge of one of those corporations, and via bidding on projects (and a healthy dose of bluffing), will be able to create grand works. Get your opponents to help with the buildings, but make sure you’re the one to get all the glory and prestige.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. They’re 1/5 of the way to their goal, but there’s still 29 days left on the clock to get there.
