Board games have really come on leap and bounds since I was a kid and its great to see so many of them hitting the market. Room 17 has already done one successful Kickstarter with Museum Rush and I’m excited to see how this plays. Loving the artwork so far, really bright and Vibrant.
Room 17 Games Ltd are delighted to announce that Flicky Spaceships will be launching on Kickstarter on the 2nd March 2018 at 9am.
Flicky Spaceships is a 40-60 minute game of dexterity, resource collection and card buying for 2-4 players. Players collect resources to buy upgrades for their Spaceship that will bring them closer to victory.
The game was originally created at the UK Games Expo by our game designers Sam Mercer and Matt Green, where it won the award for Board Game Redesign in 2014.
By flicking your ship you’ll smash into strange worlds (and other players) to collect useful resources. Each player will be trying to turn their resources into powerful spaceship upgrades for attack, defense, resource generation, or victory point production – all to give them the edge in conquering this new-found galaxy.
On your turn you will collect the resource from the hex your spaceship is on (which might be where you left it last turn…), flick your spaceship into a new hex, then invest in upgrades for your spaceship.
There are 12 available technologies in a game worth different amounts of victory points at the end of the game. In addition, victory point tokens can be taken from a central pool for the successful use of certain upgrades. The game ends when a fixed number of upgrades have been bought or the victory point pool is exhausted.
Flicky Spaceships is the second project from Room 17 Games following the hugely successful Museum Rush which managed to attain 340% funding. A number of great value stretch goals are planned to add more gameplay and improve the components further, adding lots of value for money.
There are two pledge levels available to backers: ‘Flicker’ (£40) which includes the complete core game and Kickstarter Exclusive Pilot cards and alternative ships and the sweet-spot ‘Galactic Flicker’ (£65) pledge level, which includes the complete Flicky Spaceships Game, the Kickstarter Exclusive Pilot cards and ships and the Pirates expansion!
The Pirates expansion adds a new challenge to games of Flicky, expanding it’s player numbers to six as well as allowing players to fight over who becomes the pirate! The set includes extra ships, additional gaming boards and edging, all-new upgrade cards, Pirate Captain Cards, over 30 additional resource cubes plus a whole lot more!
Come join us in outer space and take over the galaxy, or destroy it and everyone one else on your way through.
We’ll be keeping an eye on the game and sharing further developments as it goes along. And you can see a few more elements of the game in this Video.
