About

Imagine Pac-man but with lots of pac-things. And instead of ghosts they eat each other, and instead of just a pan-pac-canibalooza you have a real eco system of dots evolving and adapting to one another and the system.

As Monopoly and Settlers of Catan are to Economics, or as Risk and Axis vs. Alies are to Tactics this game will be to Evolutionary Science.

Is there anything more fun and entertaining than watching generations of brute "natural" selection play out between you and your friends? If there is I'm too nerdy to recognize it.

The above, along with other reasons, are why I'm pumped to have the chance to develop this game sooner than I imagined possible before kickstarter.

I have a vast array of both new mechanics and overall ideas of balancing raw hunting and seeking with the intricacies and wildcards found in the crazy world of evolutionary science.

I'm not a rich man but I have an idea of what to evolve this game into and, given the proper conditions (patrons-a-plenty and patrons with vision!) I can bring you a game that virtually anyone, tabletop afficcionado or no, a game that they'd be happy to play not once but just about any time you have a party assembled!

Help us evolve! It's going to be Epic...er...Eon! :)

    The mutant. You're different. You see a promising game where others don't.

    As a reward you get your name printed, along side other mutant names, on a mutated cousin to the frisby. This frisby cousin is lighter and has a giant hole in the middle so it can be tossed in places you shouldn't toss a frisby and can be easily and generally painlessly caught even by some of the least natural frisbee catchers in the human gene pool!

    These donors may receive multiples of these frisbee mutants but at the very least will receive two of them.

    Sorry but anything outside of North America would endanger my shipping options and the whole of the reward fulfillment.

    The Founder's Trace. The first five to patron this game, and choose this option, will get an entire flier, as described in "The mutant", dedicated to only those five. That is, the flier will only have those five names on it and each of those five doners will receive more than TWENTY of such fliers to do with as they please shipped to them! (reserved for those within the US or Canada, international donors I'd have to figure out a modified and lesser compensation--sorry)

    The founder effect. When a small population manages a disproportionate impact on the future generations.

    Since that's what early donations would do for my project I'd treat these three extra special. They'd each get a specially modified version of the game that will not be surpassed in detail or attention. There will be no other three prints like these ones.

    Thanks for being founders! You're the one's who make this game Eon!
