helionox Mr. B. Games proudly announces their Kickstarter for Helionox: Mercury Protocol, a new stand-alone expansion set in the Helionox Universe.  Helionox is a deck-building game featuring variable player powers and worker placement.  This new expansion will add pick-up-and-deliver mechanisms to this movement-based card game.  This expansion will be completely compatible with the original core set, The Last Sunset, and will expand the game options of interplanetary travel, combat, and cargo delivery.  Several new card types will also be included, including four unique ships, each equipped with differing abilities. helionox cont What follows is a summary of gameplay for the expansion, as outlined on the Kickstarter:
Players compete for “Influence” by overcoming both social and stellar events, traveling to different locations around the solar system to establish embassies and gain special abilities, and acquiring powerful technologies and operatives from an abundant marketplace. On their turn, players purchase cards from the market with “Credits” and integrate these cards into their deck for use later in the game. Players can also choose to overcome one or more of the disastrous events spreading across the colonies by using “Defense”. Both Defense and Credits are gained by playing cards or using Location and Architect abilities. Players continue building increasingly powerful combinations to acquire Influence points on subsequent turns. But time is limited! Once the last card of the “event deck” is played, the game is over. The player with the most influence at the end wins.
This Kickstarter project for Helionox: Mercury Protocol will end on Friday, May 6, 2016.  For more information and to support this project, visit the Kickstarter page here.
