August 2, 2017 - 7:39am
Burning Games has announced the release of their new game, Ether Wars, a strategic, almost abstract, game of dice rolling, placement, and resource management. Originally a successful 2016 Kickstarter Project, Ether Wars has 2-4 players taking on the roles of alien species vying for control of the ether, an immensely valuable energy source. The game contains 4 assymetric dice armies - the strong and vicious Dracon, the Ripper who can build immense armies, the versatile and unpredictable Humans, and  the Vai who can tap the power of the Ether for magical abilities. Ether Wars comes with 40 unit dice, 4 hero dice, 6 mercenary dice, numerous cards resource tokens.

Ether Wars is a dice rolling game of worker-placement and area control in which two to four players with asymmetric powers fight for control of the Ether. It has been playtested in dozens of conventions and these have been the best-liked elements:

  • Your troops are represented by custom dice; in total there are over 50 of them! You'll have to place, move and roll your troops to fight for the Ether.
  • It offers ample room for strategic-decision making. Will you raise a huge army, manipulate the board to surprise your opponents, hoard resources like there is no tomorrow, or just concentrate on obliterating your opponents? It's up to you.
  • It features a strong sci-fi theme: you are not just playing a game, you represent your species in a deadly contest for the Ether!
Ether Wars will be available September 2017.
