The Cold War. Espionage was king. Spies plied their trade all across the globe in a deadly game of cat and mouse. That's the world of Phantom Doctrine, and soon, you can bring it to your tabletops in the Phantom Doctrine Board Game. The project is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Phantom Doctrine is a strategic, turn-based, espionage thriller set at the peak of the Cold War. Drawing on a wide variety of influences and capturing the subtle intrigue of classic spy films, the game thrust the player into a mysterious world of covert operations, counter-intelligence, conspiracy and paranoia. As a leader of a secret organisation known only as The Cabal, you are charged with preventing a global conspiracy that seeks to pit leader against leader, and nation against nation. By carrying out secret missions, investigating classified files, and interrogating enemy agents, a sinister plot is uncovered. With the clock ticking, it must be thwarted in order to save the world from an unthinkable fate.
We kept in mind the huge success of the original Phantom Doctrine, which is why we worked really hard and were very careful with every decision that we made. Each step and each implemented mechanic was a piece of the puzzle to make the best possible board game in the Phantom Doctrine universe. Our goal was to give you the feeling of being real spy. That's why you can choose your preferred playstyle: weapon specialist, master of disguise, intelligence specialist, hacker, field medic, martial art specialist and many more!
The campaign is up and running now and is set to go for another 28 days.
