The Grand Gamers Guild and designer Joe Hopkins have brought their new cooperative game Endangered to Kickstarter, featuring art by Ben Flores and Beth Sobel. In Endangered, 2-5 players take on the role of conservationists, working together to try to save one species. The base game of Endangered comes with 2 modules – one for Tigers, one for Sea Otters, however other modules featuring endangered animals are planned for the future. Hopefully your remaining animals will breed in the wild, with each species having its own rules for such, will have enough space to live after inevitable environmental decline, and will make it through the random events of the Impact Deck.
Endangered is also a modular game system. The base game includes the Tiger and Sea Ottermodules; you’ll play with the environment, cards, hazards, and special rules that apply to your chosen species. We also have a number of other modules planned for a variety of threatened species. Each module tells a different story, offers unique challenges, and helps players understand the difficulties facing these animals and the conservationists determined to help them. With your help we will be able to make many modules a reality!
Endangered has the support of the Center for Environmental Diversity, who are advising on the details of the game, and who will benefit from game sales. The Kickstarter Campaign for Endangered will continue through April 26, and the game is scheduled to ship in March 2020.
