There are many groups looking to forward their agenda here in the United States. Each one wants particular things for society. Their struggle is real, as each feels that they are the ones best-equipped to take the country into the future. But what agenda will win out? That’s for you to decide as you take on the role of the leader of these various groups in Home of the Brave, a new board game coming to Kickstarter this February.
About the game:
Home of the Brave is a game for 2-5 players, full of negotiation, blackmail, alliances and scandals. Each player will compete for influence, advance their professional position, gain powerful supporters and affect the United States politics – all to achieve their private goals and thus win the game.
The idea for “Home of the Brave” was born from the desire to create a game that would accurately represent complicated social and psychological aspects of the world of politics. Our sources of inspiration were George R.R. Martin’s “Song of Ice and Fire”, “House of Cards” tv series and also “Twilight Struggle” – the board game.
The core concept was to blend re-playable board game mechanics with intriguing and intense storytelling. Before playing you could dive into the world of the game by reading 18-page novella that comes with the game. All of the in-game character’s choices are the reflections of player’s actions and decisions. The illustrations on the cards are strongly influenced by the courtroom sketches, by which we hope to achieve a unique style and create an original narration.
“Home of the Brave” was an idea of one man but it couldn’t have come to life without the help of others. Soon, the team of three people was working on the concepts, mechanics and the story behind the game. We are proud to say that the effect of our hard work is a functional prototype, which we hope to turn into a fully-fledged board game with the help of our backers.
We plan on launching our Kickstarter campaign on Thursday, February 22nd, 2018.
