March 23, 2018 - 10:53pm

Cheapass Games has started a Kickstarter Campaign for Girl Genius: The Works, a card game for 2-4 players by James Ernest, based on the immensely popular Girl Genius Webcomic. Girl Genius, created by famed fantasy illustrators Phil and Kaja Foglio,  is the story of Agatha Heterodyne, a gifted "spark" in a fantastic steampunk universe, whose phenomenal powers lead to remarkable adventures. Girl Genius: The Works is a card game where players manipulate cogs in a giant machine, flipping, spinning and popping cards, which can chain together, changing how they all interact. By playing the right cards, players can earn points, more cards, or special abilities. The first player to 70 points wins the game. The game is split into four 60 card decks, spanning major story arcs of the Girl Genius universe. The Kickstarter Campaign for Girl Genius: The Works continues through April 20, and the game is expected to deliver in September 2018.
