If there was ever a game that seemed destined to come back again, it'd be Boomerang. And that's just what's happening up on Kickstarter now. Grail Games is running a campaign for a new edition of Boomerang: Australia, but this return comes with extras. There's two other Boomerang-games coming back with it.
From the campaign:
WELCOME! This Kickstarter campaign is to raise funds for the new and updated English edition of the Boomerang: Australia game, AND the first English editions of the all-new sister titles: Boomerang: Europe and Boomerang: USA!
As a special thank you, backers of all three Boomerangs will also receive the exclusive mini-expansion Boomerang: Around the World for free!
In Boomerang: Australia, the "true blue" card game, players travel round the great south land, trying to visit amazing places and do as much as possible. But will the cards you want to see come back to you?
Pass your cards and take note of where you have been and what you have seen!
Boomerang could be described as a card drafting game (like 7 Wonders or Sushi Go!), mixed with a roll-and-write game (like Yahtzee, or Qwixx).
Each turn, players select one card from their hand to play, and then pass the rest to the next player to choose from. Will you take what you really want, or a different card, so as to deprive another player of something cool?
At the end of each round, players mark different things off on their score sheets, corresponding to what they earned from the cards they selected.
There is no other game exactly like Boomerang!
Thanks to our fabulous Kickstarter backers, in 2018 Grail Games successfully funded the first edition of Boomerang. When our French partner Matagot asked to revisit the artwork and rules for their edition, designer Scott Almes, Grail and the Matagot team came up with something so special we decided to produce the new edition for the English market as well :)
BUT THAT'S NOT ALL! We now have THREE Boomerang games planned for release!
The campaign is up and over its funding goal with 8 days left to go.
