Earlier this year Kolossal Games successfully funded a new edition of the John Clowdus game, Omen: A Reign of War. Now, Kolossal Games and designer John Clowdus are teaming up once again to bring Mezo to Kickstarter.
Mezo is a big box game which taps into Mayan mythology. It’s an area control game featuring asymmetric player powers, which gives each player a variety of ways to manipulate and benefit from conflicts. Oh, and it has miniatures!
“The first big box game from Small Box Games designer John Clowdus (Omen, Hemloch, Neolithic), Mezo redefines area control and conflict-driven game play. The game features massive god miniatures, each with vastly asymmetrical strategies, as well as numerous ways for players to achieve victory: most strength in the conflict, most shamans in the conflict, and most warriors in the conflict.”
The Kickstarter for Mezo has three pledge tiers. The base game of Mezo (2-4 players), starting at $80, includes miniatures, a game board, tarot size cards, and a host of other tokens and components. Other pledge tiers provide components for a fifth player, as well as, more game content, including additional god characters and their associated miniatures.
You can see a live play through of Mezo here, featuring Tom, Sam and Zee. Also, Tom had an opportunity to interview John Clowdus and Travis Chance from Kolossal Games about Mezo, which you can see here.
