I’m happy to report that Lester Smith has started a Kickstarter project! Many of us were able to playtest this game (and others) at Quincon. If you are not aware, Kickstarter is an awesome website where people go to find financing for ideas they have. Instead of going to a game company to get funding for example, someone with a game idea can present their idea to the public on the Kickstarter website and get little bits of funding from lots of people. It really is amazing. Here is the link for Lester’s project:
The game is called “Invasion of the Saucer People”. I’ve played it several times at Quincon. It is a simple, quick, fun game for 2-4 players. Even a four player game can finish up in 15 min. There is a math element to it that would make the game great for your 5-6th grade kids. Practicing math while playing a game! The game is already done; the kickstarter money will be used for original art for a commercial version. If you are a fan of RETRO science fiction art, this game may be a must-buy.
The project just got started but it is already 2/3rds of the way to it’s final goal! Wow!
