Immortal 8 - Kickstarter
March 8, 2018 - 6:40pm
8 is the number...Building up a civilization in under 8 minutes is what 8 players can do at the same time (8 minutes per player). As there are 8 Immortal Gods that are battling it out for the right to be the victor. Immortal 8 and Sorry We Are French from Moonster Games (who gave us Crossing & Imagine), will be on Kickstarter on the 8th of March 2018, is a quick and artful drafting game where each player is a Immortal God. Each of the Immortals from this medieval fantasy realm has their own way of scoring points in the game. Maybe you'll be the Immortal who scores point from culture collect from buildings you have built have been used by the other players. Maybe you'll craft a victory through spreading chaos, or having the most military might, or being able to guess which Immortal the other players are... Yes, this is a secret role drafting game, when no one knows the objectives of the other players and still have to obtain their objectives by drafting cards that help you, but not the others. The game is broken into two rounds of a first draft of 5 cards and a second of 4. In between rounds, you'll be using the powers of the building and Heroes you have constructed and possibly your neighbors buildings, at a cost. The further away a building is, the more expensive it is to use meaning you'll miss out on it's power and that player will miss out on gaining some culture. Then again, someone may have constructed a Wonder, that I placed in the middle of the table for everyone to use. Free.
Here is some of the wonderful artwork from David SitbonNot only that, you may build your own Hero to to help in your endeavors. And because you are an Immortal God, you won't have to go savaging for resources. You'll be building all these things out of thin air. Like magic. But there will be restrictions as you can't just build everything that passes in front of you. Again, you may not see the card you want throughout the game, which could be upsetting. So you'll have to come up with another strategy of building things that other players will want to use. This will pay out in the supremacy round after, as all Immortals collect point for the most Culture, Military and Science. This is a game that has a slightly more challenging learning curve than most drafting games out there, but with the rapidity of the game, after a few plays you should grasp the in dept strategies hidden in the game. And maybe discover the identity's of the other Immortal 8.
