Isles of Terror is a new story driven strategy game currently being funded on Kickstarter by Voodoo Games. In Isles of Terror, 1-4 players either competitively or cooperatively each take control of a faction, with unique strategy cards, comprised of a ship, captains, camps, and soldiers, working to explore and take over spaces on the isle towards a specific goal. The game is driven by a unique player board which limits the actions available to the player. Players get three action tokens, which are placed on a connected grid. Action token spaces connect to three different actions the player can choose from, but if the connecting line shows a resource, the player must pay to complete that action. By this mechanism, some actions can be done only once, some multiple times, or some may become locked out. Game play takes place season by season in an overarching story line, several of which can be connected into a campaign. Each season starts with an event, and continues through the players’ three actions. Check out the Kickstarter page for pictures, rules and tutorial videos.
The Kickstarter Campaign includes options for the Core Game, expanded Conqueror’s Edition with 92 miniatures, optional expansions and extra factions. The Campaign continues through February 20, and is expected to deliver in November 2018.
