From the Rift, great power can be gained. It's not like walking up and just slicing you off a piece, though. The Rift, itself, with all that power, is a rather dangerous object, and its presence is causing all sorts of havoc. What's also causing havoc are how various entities are looking to get the power of the Rift all for themselves. These immortal warriors are ready to do battle in order to be the one who controls the Rift. Using their special moves, each will look to defeat their opponents on an ever-more-destroyed world, drawing everyone together for a final conflict at the Rift, itself. That's the story behind Rift: Saga of a Dying World, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
Players in the game will take on the role of an immortal warrior, such as Astra of the Vine, Robo-Mob, or Morgana the Ultra Warrior. Using their cards in hand, players will pick out their action for the turn. Cards can have you moving around the board, charge up an attack, or some other sort of special ability. As you attack one-another, you'll force your opponent to discard cards. When a player has no more cards in hand, they are out of the game. Meanwhile, the game board, itself, is constantly shrinking as the edges of it are destroyed by the carnage happening all around. So you can't run and hide forever, as there will be an ultimate final showdown right at the Rift, itself, to determine the winner.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. They're about 2/3 of the way to their goal, but there's only about 8 days left to go to get in on the action.
