By “nuclear board game” in the headline there I mean that the game is about nuclear war, not that the game runs on nuclear power. I can’t think of any tabletop games that currently come with their own nuclear reactor in order to provide power. It would seem that that’s an untapped market. All you game designers that read the page should look into that.
Anyway, we’re here to talk about Security Council, a new board game of nuclear war that’s up on Kickstarter now.
The game uses modular hex tiles to create the board. The rules fit on 8 pages. There’s one unit type and three resources in the game. Claim hexes under your control by placing your factories on them. Build more factories to deploy your troops and spread to more tiles. When you’ve got enough resources, build nukes to take out your enemies (apparently humans don’t learn too quick about how best to use those).
The campaign is up and running now with still 29 days left on the clock.
