Ether Dev is running a Kickstarter campaign for Ether Wars, their new sci-fi board game. In Ether Wars, four races have headed out amongst the stars, each one vying to become the most powerful of all in the galaxy. It takes inspiration from numerous sources, including both RTS and MOBA-style video games. The game is also dice-driven, with quite a few custom dice as part of the game. The designers worked long and hard to make a game that has deep tactical depth, where you can change your strategy at a moment’s notice in order to throw off your opponents, as there’s more than one way to achieve ultimate victory. A cunning player can manipulate just about any aspect of the game.
The basic game comes with:
1 Game Board
4 Player Boards
90 Acrylic Stones (separated into 4 colors)
25 Charge Tokens
50 Protein Tokens
4 Custom Hero Dice
40 Custom Unit Dice (also separated into 4 colors)
6 Custom Mercenary Dice
1 Either Die
16 Specialty Cards (separated into 4 colors)
40 Favors Cards
20 Event cards
The campaign is about 1/3 funded, but there’s still 28 days to go, so plenty of time to make it to their goal.
