Tribes On Kickstarter
In Tribes, you and your fellow players (4 to 8, plus an optional referee) will become cave men and women, facing the challenges of survival in a prehistoric world. Hunt and gather food, craft the basic tools you need, establish tribal laws, and deal with natural disasters, all while protecting and caring for your most precious resource: your children. The goal is simple but vital – have the most children who live to grow up! You have to put your offspring first, but a strong tribe benefits everyone too . . . balancing cooperation and self-preservation is the key.
So it's very much a competitive/cooperative situation.
Along with Dr. David Brin, author of the Uplift series and a whole lot of other excellent SF, I designed this game many years ago (not quite in the Paleolithic, but close). The first edition was well received in a "cult favorite" sort of way but was not formatted for store release . . . it was in a baggie. This edition is deluxe by comparison – mounted mini-gameboards, color counters, and erasable character sheets, all in a (heavy!) Pocket Box.
