After a strange meteor storm, people began finding strange crystals all over. By combining these crystals in different ways, scientists were able to make leaps and bounds in technological knowledge. But the crystals were few and far-between. But with the advances in tech, more have been found on Jupiter's moons. Now, the race is on to go and get them. That's the story behind Galilean Moons, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
At the turn of the 20th century, a meteor storm has covered the Earth with mysterious Gems. By combining different types together, scientists have harnessed the power of this new resource. Technology advances at an incredible rate but the Gem deposits on earth are limited. Several nations launch space programs to search the solar system for a new source.
A discovery has been made on the Moons of Jupiter, now the race is on to settle the Galilean Moons. You command a fleet of mining robots, on a mission to harvest the Gems before they are depleted.
Take control of mining sectors, build your forces and convert your Gems into powerful new Technology. There can be only one master of the Galilean Moons.
The campaign's 9/10 of the way to its goal with 27 days left to go.
