Boardgames in Blighty Kickstarter News – Aether Captains from Mage Company is Live on Kickstarter!
MAGE Company is excited to bring you the Kickstarter for Aether Captains! Aether Captains is a steampunk themed, scenario-based, asymmetric board game for 1-5 players by Todd Sanders and published by Ninja Division Publishing.
One player commands the mighty naval zeppelins of the Grand Compact: Dauntless and Dominion. As Commander, you have been tasked by the Emperor to defend the Grand Compact and Arkady from the merciless sky pirates. With your staunch crew of steam welders, engineers, navigators and gunners, you fly with honor to confront the pirates threatening Arkady.
The remaining players command waves of attacking sky pirates, each with their own unique objectives which may pit them against any player when it results in the greatest profit for themselves. Infamous and feared, you have risen through the cutthroat cadres to become a War Captain. You swear to never rest until you control the skies and the Grand Compact falls!
I have to say that this game looks gorgeous! The art and components look excellent. The theme is pretty unusual and from what I can tell its not an entry-level game.
