With the eruption of its volcano imminent, the age of Atlantis is at an end. With little time left before extinction, most of its citizens have already fled the dying city...except for you. The age of Atlantis is at an end, but your Golden Age is just beginning!

In Looting Atlantis, you and a few other enterprising Atlanteans take to the skies in air cars in the hopes of plundering your way into fame and fortune! Dodge lava flows, steal abandoned technologies, and then use those technologies to ensure your place among the future royalty of the new age! In the city of Atlantis, your fate is determined only by your ability to outwit and outplay whoever stands in your path to glory.

Atlantis is passing into the realm of myth. Will you sink into obscurity with it...or will you rise into legend?

In Looting Atlantis you start your turn by first directing the flow of lava from the erupting volcano and then flying your air car to various locations in the city to grab up various technology cards. The different technologies score you points via different methods at the game's end, but additionally, allow you to use the technology by discarding them during play for a bonus effect. The pace increases when the first wave of lava hits the city. Players have until all of the technology has been destroyed or looted from Atlantis to decide when to flee to the other kingdoms on a first come, first serve basis. Of course, the first to leave gets the best and most valuable choice so players have to balance when exactly fleeing is in their best interest.

If you would like to read the rulebook for Looting Atlantis it is available for download HERE. We also have a totally no frills print and play version you can download though it will take a bit of work to assemble (there are 80 cards after all!) and you will need to provide your own air cars and lava markers. You can find that on Board Game Geek HERE.

Risks and challenges

Shoot Again Games goal is to deliver games that gamers want to play again and again. For us, game play and replay value come first. You can be confident when purchasing our games that you will get a game that has been thoroughly play tested and will engage your game group for years to come.

We have been gaming weekly, if not more, since the late 1970's. We know what makes a game fun and almost as important, we know what pitfalls to avoid that can ruin a game.

Shoot Again Games has already successfully run two Kickstarter campaigns both of which were delivered ahead of schedule. Yes, you read that right.

Looting Atlantis will be printed through Admagic and is ready to be sent off to them for printing as soon as the campaign ends. Shipping will be handled by ShipNaked.

Of course as with any project there is always a risk of delays, but we have done our best to minimize the chances of there being any. We pledge to keep our backers informed every step of the way.
