Once every ten years, the Royal Society of Xenofera Huntsmen holds their grand tournament, the Great Galactic Hunt. Big Game Collectors from all over are sent out into the galaxy in order to bring back the most magnificent of creatures. The competition is as fierce as the beasts, so if you want to be crowned champion, you’ll have to use all your cunning, hire the best crew, and make sure your animals don’t escape before you can get them back home. That’s the story behind Xenofera, a new card game that’s up on Kickstarter.
In the game, players are master huntsmen and huntswomen out on a quest to capture and bring back fantastic creatures from all over the galaxy. Each turn you’ll play cards from your hand, building cages, hiring crew, and gathering resources. Then, if you have the right cage, you can capture creatures. However, your opponents will be battling you, with combats using a special set of cards where you’ll have to bluff your opponent with which cards you’ve chosen to use. At the end, the player with the most points is the winner.
The Kickstarter campaign is really close to their funding goal, but there’s only 5 days left if you want to join the hunt.
