Because all board games must first be teased, then released on Kickstarter, then delayed, then eventually hit stores, Tasty Minstrel Games announced a new card game soon to be coming to a crowdfunder near you. The interesting bit? It’s a stand-along small box game set in the Eminent Domain universe. That got your ears perked up, didn’t it?
Battlecruisers is a 3-5-player card game that lasts about 30 minutes and features big space battles. Each turn, players choose and reveal an action card at the same time. Duplicate actions cancel each other out, the rest go through. By completing “glorious deeds” you gain victory points. You can also win by being the last ship standing (errr, flying?).
Though it doesn’t sound like there’s much complexity to this one (quite a departure for Eminent Domain), it could be fun. You’ll be able to pre-order this via Kickstarter soon.
Also announced is a new Eminent Domain expansion, Exotica. Eminent Domain: Exotica adds new Exotica scenarios, two new planet types, new research cards, and asteroids. It's also coming to Kickstarter soon.
