Victory Point Games PRESS RELEASE – Abandon Earth and Swytch (BGO series #1 and #2) are now on sale!
VPG proudly introduces the first two games in the Bagged Game Originals (“BGO“) series, Abandon Earth and Swytch!
A BGO game is available only in a bag, and at an even more affordable price than our other bagged games. Not to be confused with our Gold Banner Games, BGO games often have a small rulebook, a small sheet of counters, and an 8.5″x11″ paper map (if applicable).
Abandon Earth, by designer Tom Decker, is a multiplayer game in which you aim to get your people to a new world that they can call home. Manage your actions wisely by searching for survivors, researching new technology, training and sending off marines to fight back, and launching rockets containing the last remaining survivors of Planet Earth. Score more Victory Points before everyone else and declare yourself (and your people) victorious!

Swytch, the second in the BGO series by designer Nathan Hansen, is a symmetrically balanced abstract strategy game for 2 players. Each player has two types of Counters: Hexagonal and Circular. Hexagonal counters can move in 3 directions, while Circular counters can move in all 6 directions.
Each player tries to outmaneuver and eliminate all of the opposing player’s pieces on the board. To do this, they can do one of three things on their turn. They can either: Move/Attack with a counter or stack of counters, prepare a stack of Hexagonal counters for an advanced move with changing directions, or “Swytch” (i.e., change the orientation of a Stack of Hexagonal counters, and thus what directions they can move). Every time that a player attacks with a stack of counters, they MUST also Swytch with that stack immediately after.
