Stockpile: Illicit Investments Expansion & Epic Edition Live on Kickstarter
Nauvoo Games has just launched a Kickstarter campaign for Illicit Investments, the latest expansion for Stockpile, a popular economic game designed by Brett Sobol and Seth Van Orden which received the Dice Tower Seal of Excellence.
The Illicit Investments expansion adds a new phase to the beginning of the game in which players draft a starting hand of Investment Strategy Cards. During each Action Phase, players then have the opportunity to play one Investment Strategy Card to help "control the chaos of the stock market" by providing a wide range of unique actions.
The expansion also includes a new First Player Card variant in which players can bid for turn order, a new Investor Card, and some upgraded component upgrades such as wooden stock tickers and a 2P reference sheet.
The campaign also has the option for an all-in Epic Edition, which includes the base game plus expansions and promos in one single box, as well as a Cosmic Tier which includes both the Illicit Investments and Continuing Corruption expansions along with 2 promo packs.
According to Nauvoo games, they do not plan to re-print the game any time soon following this Kickstarter campaign, which you can find here.
