Manhattan Project 2: Minutes to Midnight Board Game Up On Kickstarter

Personally, I would've called it Manhattan Project 2: Hat Harder, but that's me. Anyway, Minion Games is running a Kickstarter campaign for Manhattan Project 2: Minutes to Midnight. Use your country's Nuclear Triad, building up your reserves as well as constantly looking to improve your technology in order to make sure that when the mushroom clouds appear, you're still safe.

From the campaign:

It has been 20 years since the invention of the atomic bomb, and the superpowers of the world have remained embroiled in an ever-escalating arms race. The production of fissile material no longer poses a challenge for any nation. Instead, the race has switched to the development of a wide range of delivery systems. In a crisis, your nation will need to strike faster and farther from land, sea, and air. Take charge of your nation’s “Nuclear Triad” and always remember: a credible threat is your most effective deterrent!

Minutes to Midnight allows you to play the game you want. From many paths to victory to be able to choose your own game length by setting the adjustable scoring rounds to different intervals. With interesting confrontational mechanics such as controlling another player's coastal waters or third world nation to spying on other player's buildings.

The campaign is already over its funding goal, edging its way towards 2x funded with still 26 days left on the doomsday clock.
