Artipia Games has launched their Kickstarter campaign for Project: ELITE, their new real-time sci-fi board game. A game of Projet: ELITE takes just 30-45min. The game consists of numerous 2-minute rounds where players must decide between defeating aliens or completing objectives. You don’t have a lot of time to sit and debate. You’ve got to go! Go! Go! The game is a cooperative affair for 1-4 players. The campaign is already over their funding goal, so it’s on to stretch goals for the next 25 days.
From the campaign:
Project: ELITE takes the idea of a real-time co-operative dice game, and with unique twists brings innovative new mechanics to the table. Players take the role of a special ops team with the mission to hold back an ongoing alien invasion trying to take over the Earth. The game consists of 80 highly detailed miniatures in 17 unique designs sculpted by the proven artist Antonis Papantoniou, who also worked on the artwork of the game along with Giota Vorgia.
Players need to work together in short 2-minute rounds deciding quickly among defending their base, hunting down some aliens or completing their objectives. Special events and unique alien abilities make every round different and highly challenging for the players. To win the game they will have to rely not only on their special weapons and items, but on their fast reflexes as well.
The game provides endless replayability with a 2-sided board depicting two different landscapes, 4 different kinds of objectives, 3 levels of difficulty and a plethora of weapons, items and events, making every game a unique, ELITE experience.
Project: ELITE is a 1-4 player game, for ages 12 and above, that takes approximately 30-45 minutes to play. It consists of 80 highly-detailed miniatures of 30 mm-60mm , a 2-sided board, 145 cards, a digital timer, 16 custom D6 dice, 16 numbered D6 dice and one D20 dice. It is going to debut at Spiel Essen 2015 in October, however the backers of the Kickstarter campaign will have the opportunity to buy it earlier, on April 29th at a special price.
