The world of international commerce is complex, yet we deal with it every day. How many times have you been waiting on a game to arrive, seeing updates from the game makers talking about the ship being on the water, or having the container they’re waiting on stuck in customs, or anything else like that? Probably a lot, given how the gaming world works now. Well, now you can bring that all to your tabletop in Import/Export, a new card game up on Kickstarter.
From the campaign:
Import / Export is a role selection game with a passive and active economy driven by player decisions.
You will have the power to gain over 100 unique powers by exporting shipments of goods, specializing into a varied tech tree, and unlocking advanced game engines that will be completely unique to each play!
Once your shipments enter the open sea, someone can trigger an Import action, where everyone will hold a silent auction to buy your containers and either allocate them as a future end game investment or an immediate boost to their available actions for specific roles.
The end goal of the game is to have the most credits, which will be a combination of your physical credits, passive credits that were saved as imported goods, plus any bonuses from completed shipments.
The campaign is doing rather well. They’ve made over 4x their funding goal with still 27 days left to go.
