Eurydice Games has launched FlickFleet, a new finger-flicking game set in space, on Kickstarter. In this two-player game, players command a fleet of spaceships made of laser cut acrylic. Each ship has its own set of weaponry and abilities. Players take turns making two actions with each of their ships, moving them by flicking them for the best angle to engage or evade the enemy, firing lasers and missiles at the enemy by flicking a dice at the target, deploying fighters and bombers, or repairing the ship’s defenses. The dice used to attack other ships depend on the type of weapon fired, and the results of the dice after a hit determines the effect on the target. Each type of ship comes with a dashboard card that displays the status of all the systems on the ship. With this dashboard, players keep track of damage to the ship, available assets, and lost capabilities. The rules support two styles of play: free play and scenario. A handful of scenarios are included in the rulebook and more are promised online at Eurydice Games.
FlickFleet plays two players, ages 8+, in about 20 minutes. Contents include 11 capital ships, 11 three-part fighter/bomber wings, 11 capital ship dashboards, 56 wooden discs, 49 wooden cubes, and a D10 and a D6 dice. To learn more, check out their Kickstarter campaign, which runs through December 8 with an expected delivery of December 2019.
