Moonrakers “Launch” Event
August 29 | 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Come join local designers and IV Studios to play a demo of their new game Moonrakers. A Kickstarter to fund this game will be launched in early September, but you can try it our first here at Game Point tonight!
What is Moonrakers? Here’s a little description of game play:
Moonrakers is a game of shipbuilding, temporary alliances, and shrewd negotiation set in a space-faring future. The players form a loose band of mercenaries, but while they are united in name, actual alliances are shaky as players are pitted against each other in the quest to become the new leader of the Moonrakers.
Moonrakers is a deck-building game in which players choose Contracts to attempt alone or with Allies in order to gain Prestige and Credits. After negotiating terms with Allies, players use their decks of Action cards to play Thrusters, Shields, Weapons, Reactors, and Crew to fulfill the requirements on each Contract. Each type of Action card has additional effects such as extra Actions, drawing additional cards, and protecting players from Hazards encountered while attempting Contracts.
It promises to be a fun evening – come out and be on the cutting edge!
