In most games, you play as the combatants down on the field of battle. You're the army. You're the team. You're the gladiators. But in Fired Up, it's a little different. You play as the audience. But that doesn't just mean that you sit around, waiting for things to happen. Your cheering influences those down in the arena. Whose champion will come out ahead? The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Fired Up is an arena game in which the players are the audience and not the fighters.
Use your influence dice to cheer or jeer the fighters, encourage them to run faster, fight better or even make them change their targets, so that you can see some amazing Highlights, and leave the stadium Fired Up!
Be careful though, since the other players may have totally different agendas so you need to make sure to adapt your energy to the right fighter at the right time.
The game's around 1/4 of the way to its goal with still 26 days left to go.
