Boardgames in Blighty Kickstarter News – Pompeii: Wrath of Vesuvius erupts on Kickstarter
See what I did there? Well I tried, eh?
Punch-It Entertainment has launched their project for their game Pompeii: Wrath of Vesuvius.
Pompeii: Wrath of Vesuvius is a lightweight area-control game of building, bluffing, and destruction. For 2-5 players, ages 8 and up.
This is a light, area control game which seems like it would be fun for non-gamers. It’s co-designed in part by Jay Little, whose game design credits include: X-Wing Miniatures, Edge of Empire, Blood Bowl Team Manager.
From the project –
Pompeii: Wrath of Vesuvius has only two phases in the game – the Pompeii Phase and Vesuvius Phase. Which means it’s easy to get into, but offers a variety of game play strategies with its cleverly designed building and bluffing mechanics.
Powerful families vie for control over key districts throughout the city. Once the districts are complete, however, the mighty volcano known as Vesuvius erupts, sending its destructive lava to burn away what these families worked so hard to build.
Only a few remnants of the once proud city still stand. The family clever and fortunate enough to secure its influence during both the development and destruction of Pompeii shall claim victory!
Nothing like a good volcanic eruption to game over. The art looks very nice as do the components. This one looks like good fun folks so check it out HERE.
Btw my UK and European friends, this one is Euro friendly and for that reason alone, should be checked out.The price seems fair including shipping.
