Dreams of Tomorrow is a competitive, set collection game about weaving dreams, manipulating action spaces, and carefully using abilities. The game is published by Weird Giraffe Games, designed by Phillip Falcon Perry with art by James Masino, plays in about 45 mins, and supports 1-6 players aged 8+.
The future has fallen. After a mysterious decline brought humanity to the brink, the people of the future got to work on fixing the past – by sending sequences of dreams back to our time in order to give us the inspiration we need to change the future.
As a Dream Engineer working in the distant future, you must intertwine memorable and powerful dreams in order to change your present. Catch dream fragments from the Dreamscape and either use their abilities to help you – or weave them together into a completed dream sequence that can be sent back to the past to secure victory!

There are two main modes of play: Pleasant Night, and Troubled Night.
During Pleasant Night, players turns consist of moving around the Collective Consciousness, which is a set of 8 action spaces, and taking the action of the space they land on. The 4 Resource action spaces give players a large amount of resources when used, but also give all other players a small amount of resources. The 4 Dream action spaces let players catch dreams from the Dreamscape, or weave those dreams into a Dream Sequence, or activate those dreams’ abilities. Dreams in the Dream Sequence add dream points, which are necessary to win the game. For an increased challenge, the game can be played in the Troubled Night mode, where the Night Mare can upset action spaces and take actions out of players reach. Solo players can compete against a robot player, which is added to the game. The robot player has quick turns and races the player for points. The robot player can also be added to the multiplayer game to increase the challenge.
The Dreams of Tomorrow Kickstarter project will run until Thursday, November 8th 2018, with estimated delivery happening in September of 2019. The project is currently more than 50% funded. There are multiple pledge levels with varying add-on items ranging from gifts to a bundle of games produced by Weird Giraffe Games thus far (including Stellar Leap and Fire in the Library).
