"It's Awesome - I absolutely adore it." —Rahdo

"If you've never played Helionox before... I'd seriously consider backing the game. If you have, the expansion gently and smartly adds on some new decisions that take what the game does best and drive it in new and unexpected directions." —Jason, Meeple, Myself, and I  

"This game is fantastic."—Tom, Never Bored Gaming

"Helionox is a deceptively deep game. It redefines 'light deckbuilder' by not being as light as it seems on first blush. Plus, Luke Green draws the future like no one else can."—Mike Selinker, Lone Shark Games

The Basics of Game Play

Set in the distant future, players compete for “Influence” by obtaining powerful technology and operatives, overcoming devastating events, and establishing embassies on different worlds. 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.

Events

Each turn, the current player places the top card of the Event deck at its Location.

Place one event each turn
Place one event each turn

Movement and Embassies

On your turn, you will draw 5 cards. A basic hand will consist of Credits and Defense. Defense is used to Overcome events while Credits allow you purchase cards, change locations, and place Embassies.

Two Credits to move to any Location. Two Credits to place an Embassy.

Cryo Counters

At the beginning of each turn you will remove a Cryo Counter from your Architect. Any time during your turn, if your Architect has no Cryo Counters, you may place counters on it to activate an ability. These are powerful abilities but cannot be used again until your Architect is no longer in Cryo, (i.e. has no Cryo Counters on it).

If your Architect has no Cryo counters, you may add Cryo Counters to activate an ability.

The Market

Cards may be purchased from the Market for Credits. Cards Obtained this way go on top of your deck, allowing for powerful combos on your next turn (or possibly sooner!).  

Cards Obtained from the Market go on top of your deck.

Shipping

Shipping is included in US costs and, for everywhere else, is added to your pledge via the Kickstarter shipping system. Simply pledge to the proper level and it will prompt you to the proper shipping fee. Countries Excluded: We are no longer able to ship to Brazil, Russia, Mexico, or the Middle East due to high postage prices, and lost parcels. If you live in one of these areas, we recommend you use a USA address and have the game forwarded to you via a relative/friend or postage forwarding company. We continue to work with different fulfillment centers all over the world to ensure better, and more affordable delivery each campaign but none will guarantee delivery to these countries. PLEASE NOTE: Damage may occur during transit by the various shipping carriers used. We wish this was not the case, but it can happen. Shipping Carriers pass their fees along to us, we do not set high postage rates. We subsidize all shipping and handling costs from our profits to help lower these costs for you, our backers, because it is important to us to help spread the word about our project and help our games and our company grow. We are a small business who relies on shipping companies to fill our Kickstarter campaigns. PLEASE email our Customer Service (mrbgames.cs{at symbol}gmail.com) if you have any major issues with delivery/loss/damage that cannot be resolved with the carrier (IE always try your local post office first) and we will help assist you in resolving them. We will need your backer number, address and backer name in the email.  

Customs Friendly? 

We will try to make the best shipping choices (ie EU/UK/CANADA friendly) for your rewards when possible, but reserve the right to ship parcels from the USA or China if quantities ordered outside the USA are not large enough to facilitate pallet shipments. We are now upgraded to EU Friendly shipping for all EU countries as we have enough backers to ship a pallet.

For all other countries - we will let your know via an update if we ship from the USA and offer invoices to help with customs if need be. In our experience customs rarely happens if we have to go this route, but we cannot 100% guarantee it will be Customs Friendly unless we hit a large enough shipment.

Risks and challenges

Zeroic Games is partnering with long time and successful Kickstarter veteran Sean Brown of Mr. B Games.

Mr. B Games will be handling production, fulfillment, and distribution of HELIONOX. Mr. B Games is a proven game publisher with many successfully fulfilled Kickstarter campaigns to show for it. This allows you (and us!) to rest assured. Upon successful funding, your orders will be successfully fulfilled. If you need more proof, just check out Mr. B Games track record of top quality Kickstarter projects with games like Posthuman, Alien Uprising, and Spurs.
