The rules of Raid & Trade are finally online. This should be good enough to get an idea of the game. This is not the final rulebook and it will be professionally edited and re-written before it is released. You can see now how it will look like, the set-up, main rules, examples. etc.

New Stretch Goals posted for Raid & Trade

1. Double Sided tiles and we need less than 3K to reach this one!
2. New Global Events. 2 new Events will be available!
3. New Character Cora! This Stretch Goal includes a variety of components. The special thing about Cora is the new Ability we created. We will reveal her ability and her components as soon we hit this goal.

From the campaign:

Outpost is now available!

If you want to collect Favor Points then Outpost is the place you must visit. The cost to enter Outpost is 5AP and when you get in, you can make several actions like test a new medicine or buy a Credit Disc. Both actions give you Favor Points and bring you closer to victory. Beware though since the other players can attack you and if they succeed then you must leave this place.

Increase your pledge level by $4 if you want to receive Outpost painted.

From the post:

The 3rd World War was referred, by many, as the last war because of the vastness of destruction that it had caused. Everywhere around the world, mankind suffered great casualties and horror — but a few survivors that had the power and the resources built mighty cities all around the world to gain strength and rule again. The cities that were built each had a unique aspect: They contained golden metallic walls, symbolizing hope. Thus, they were named the Golden Cities. This game takes place five years after the Last War, with the players taking on the role of people vying for citizenship within a Golden City.

Raid and Trade is a post apocalyptic game, a game of negotiation and resource management for 3-5 players. The player who is able to enter the golden city first wins, and there are three different ways to enter the golden city. MAGE Company will demo the game at Essen Spiel, on October at our booth Hall 3 – Booth O103 while we have scheduled the campaign for the Kickstarter on November 3.
