Winter is coming.
No really, it is for us here in the Northern Hemisphere. And, y’know, you could say it’s coming for the Southern Hemisphere, too. It’s just further away for them.
Anyway, it’s time to stock up and prepare for the cold season. But what if you’re an ant? You’ve gotta make sure the whole colony is ready, and there’s plenty of other insects out there looking to grab those necessary resources for themselves. That’s the story behind BrilliAnts, a new board game from Sphere Games up on Kickstarter.
The game seats 1-4 players and comes with four different “difficulty levels” for the rules. You can start out with the easiest version and play with kids as young as about 8, or ramp it all the way up and get really cutthroat and hardcore with the insect interactions as they try and make sure their colony is the one that’s going to make it.
The campaign is about 1/3 funded with still 24 days left to go.
