Now on Kickstarter from Alley Cat Games, Lab Wars
June 20, 2016 - 12:02pm
Science games are popping up these days on Kickstarter, which is not necessarily a bad thing, and here is another science themed card game called Lab Wars. Lab Wars looks to play like a mix of Citadels and Dominion with the first phase of each turn playing like Citadels as each player will select a character to use and execute the actions associated with that character. Once the actions of that character are done then in turn order each person will get to buy lab cards, build item cards, or acquire impact cards that will be worth points at the end of the game. Things keep going around and around like this until two of the impact cards stacks have run out. Now while this sounds a bit solitaire-ish, it's not, because there are plenty of sabotage actions to be had in order to mess with your opponent and better your standing in the process. The game looks good and the art style I can get behind, so if this game sounds interesting to you then head on over to the Kickstarter page to pledge for a copy, there is even an option to add a small expansion for even more variety.
