Can you hear me now? Smartphone Inc. launches on Kickstarter

Cosmodrome Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for the second printing of Smartphone Inc. This economic simulation euro has 1-5 players operating competing smartphone companies through R&D, production, and distribution. Designed by Ivan Lashin with art by Viktor Miller Gausa, the game received a Dice Tower Seal of Excellence, and will be part of the Dice Tower Essentials line, brought to retail by Arcane Wonders.

The game plays over five rounds, each with eight phases. Players will plan their actions for the round using a distinctive method of overlaying two pads containing action symbols. Based on this placement, players will set the prices for their company’s smartphones, determine how many units they produce, research technology upgrades, and distribute product to regions with variable customer preferences.

The Kickstarter stretch goals announced so far include added variability, exclusive components, and an alternative board for 1-3 players. The campaign ends on Monday August 12th.
