Dead Reckoning

Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG) has launched a Kickstarter campaign for the latest game using John D Clair's card crafting system, Dead Reckoning.  The game is designed by Clair with the artwork supplied by Ian O'Toole.  The game is for 1-4 players, ages 14 and up, and plays in about 90-150 minutes.

In Dead Reckoning, the players are sailors setting out for adventure with an inexperienced crew and a small ship.  As play progresses, the players will be able to level up their seamen using the card crafting system and advance their crew as well, allowing for even more customization.  The players will determine the course of their crews actions.  Do you want your crew to be pirates? Explorers? Merchants?  The choice is up to you as you can explore, expand, extract, and exterminate during your game play.

The Kickstarter campaign has about 2 more weeks to run, but it has fully funded already.  The estimated delivery date for the game is May 2021.  Be sure to check out the Kickstarter campaign page for more information on the game as well as videos showing off the game play.  You can see it all here!
