‘Nova Cry’ Returns to Kickstarter
January 21, 2015 - 7:23am
Originally funded in 2012, Nova Cry is a card-driven space 4X game by designer Steven Lykowski. After reclaiming the rights from a third party that failed to publish the original, Nova Cry is back with an updated version and an expansion. In Nova Cry, player draft cards to build their personal task forces consisting of a captain, crew, weapons, and a ship. From there, it’s a race to 15 victory points through a variety of varying objectives.
“Will you explore creature-infested planets? Race an opponent to an undiscovered planet? Challenge another captain to a duel? It’s all up to as you carve out a strategic path to victory in this remarkable universe of heroes, villains, and awe-inspiring spaceships.”Players explore planets by rolling dice against a Discovery Table, leverage their crew through the use of action cards, and do battle with one another through careful resource management. Nova Cry supports 2-6 players and plays in approximately 30 minutes.
