Crowdfund It! OverBattle: The All War
Who loves war games, outer-space settings, and subterfuge?! Currently on Kickstarter there is an area control/war game that takes place in outer space and includes twists and turns, making it a unique game even among war game pros. OverBattle: The All War is the first product of the new company Syther Gaming and was created by Rob McBride. OverBattle is different because of its inclusion of an alien faction called the Cyn. The Cyn are a group of refugees that have traveled into this solar system and were given a moon to colonize. However, the Cyn are a dastardly bunch, and they quickly go to work on destroying the currently peaceful solar system. War breaks out and the game begins. The Cyn function differently than the other 3 factions available for play. The main 3 factions operate like your traditional war game, but the Cyn can’t be attacked until a faction creates a win condition or the round timer runs out. So for the first portion of the game, the Cyn operate more like an engine builder, as that player begins amassing their forces and stealthily becoming a force to be reckoned with. However, strong alliances between other players can shut down the Cyn before they have a chance to do any more harm to the galaxy. To see the full details on the game check out the Kickstarter now.
