Zone Raiders Miniatures Skirmish Game Up On Kickstarter

Zone Raiders is a new tactical sci-fi miniatures game. It incorporates elements of skirmish games, along with campaign systems, and even RPG elements and asymmetrical goals for games to create a unique sci-fi feeling on the tabletop. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

Combining inspirations from small-scale tabletop wargames, campaign skirmish games, RPGs and tactical turn-based video games, Zone Raiders is a fusion of what we love best about all of these. 

We wanted to strike the right chord between tactical depth of play, narrative campaigns and character development along with a commitment to streamlined rules while maintaining sophistication. Combined with a stunningly alien scifi setting that is vast enough to encompass many themes as a player's imagination can conjure, it's a game meant to scratch an itch we've felt for ages.

Or on a more direct note Have you ever wanted to play a game where you could...

  • Grappling Hook to tall ledges, snipe foes, then dive to safety?
  • Wallrun up a steep slope, and kick a bad guy over a railing to their doom?
  • Fight AI Monsters issuing from an automated factory, then lure them into a nest of explosive barrels before blowing the lot up?
  • Open an cryo-vault to rescue an ancient survivor with lost knowledge?
  • Project force-field bridges across vast gaps, only to turn them off when foes set foot on them?
  • Combine versus and cooperative play into a single ruleset, with stealth and objective focused mechanics?

All of these are within the domain of Zone Raiders. 

The campaign is about 2/3 of the way to its funding goal with still 13 days left to go.
