Epic, 4X space games like Twilight Imperium: Fourth Edition are loved for their grandness and scale. However, even players who love 4X games (explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate) struggle to get them to the table because of their time commitment and complexity.
The Final Flicktier by Gabe Barrett is hoping to scratch that 4X itch in just an hour of gameplay while upping the fun factor by bringing in dexterity as you flick your spaceships (dice) throughout the galaxy.
The Final Flicktier is a 4X style space game with dice flicking at its core. Players will take on the role of unique factions all vying for control of the galaxy. They’ll flick their spaceships (dice) around the board in order to explore new planets, build structures, harvest resources, and attack other factions. The player with the most victory points at the end wins.
The game is easy to learn and emphasizes finesse flicking over brute strength. Two beautifully illustrated neoprene mats are your playing and flicking surfaces. The base game comes with four space faring factions. Each faction gets its own set of ships which are represented by different sided dice ranging from traditional D6 up to a D12.
