Floating Market board game up on Kickstarter
Eagle-Gryphon Games is running a Kickstarter for Floating Market, the game of fruit salad (and no, this is nothing like the potato salad Kickstarter from a few months ago). Players are trying to collect fruit from the fruit boats in order to get their grandmother (in the game, not their actual grandmother, though you could get her involved if you wanted, I guess) to make them some fruit salad.
The campaign’s more than 2x funded with still 19 days to go.
From the campaign:
Ama is tired. It has been a long day of chasing her grandchildren, and she needs a break. Ama has been around for a long time and she has a few tricks up her sleeve. With the promise of her famous fruit salad, Ama sends her grandchildren down to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market to collect fruit… and to get out of her hair! Collecting different fruit is no easy task, as the fruit boats –full of Mango, Banana, Papaya, Guava, Grapefruit, Rambutan, and the famous Starfruit – are constantly shifting around the Khlong Damnoen Saduak Canal of Thailand.
Players are eager grandchildren, competing to be the first to collect five different types of Fruit for Ama… AND get the first bowl of Fruit Salad!
In Floating Market, players each control Customers (Ama’s grandchildren), which they will assign to fruit boats (to collect Fruit) and to buildings (to receive special abilities). Each player will also add a die to the dice pool each round in an attempt to influence a thrilling die roll that determines which fruit boat will hand out fruit.
