The Game

Planet Miner is a fun 2-4 player game where players battle to be the first to have 5000 minerals worth of planets.  Each player starts by randomly drawing 5 cards from the deck of 54 cards.  Once you draw your cards the fun begins.  Players take turns placing down planets or ships until the game is over. Each turn a player picks up two cards, and can play up to three cards.

Cards

There are three types of cards in Planet Miner.  There are planets, ships, and bonus cards. 

Planets

Every planet has a mineral count, as well as a population count.  The goal of the game is to have enough planets under your command so that the total mineral count from all the planets is 5000.  Each planet has a mineral count of 0, 250, 500, 750, or 1000.  

Every planet also has a population count.  Population is needed in order to place ships down.

Ships

Each ship has a crew count, attack, and shield.  When playing the game to have a ship active you need to have enough population between all your planets to support it. Ex. If you have 500 population you can place up to 500 population worth of ships.  The ship above requires a crew of 0, so you can place this ship down immediately. Ships are required to defend your planets, as well as to attack and steal planets from your opponents.

Special Cards

Special cards give players a bonus during the game.  There are four special cards in each deck. One increases the attack damage of a ship, one increases a ship's shield, one increases the mineral production of a planet, and the final card decrease the crew needed for a ship.  All these cards must be attached to a ship or a planet to be active, and once attached, cannot be removed.

Battles 

 
Battle Between Players
Battle Between Players

In battle each ship is paired off with an enemy ship one to one The attacker decides which ship to attack with which ship.  In an attack once the ships are paired off the ships use their attacks on one another.  If the attack damage of a ship is higher then the shield of the other ship, the ship under attack is destroyed, and the card is returned to the deck.  In the situation that both attacks are greater then the shields, both ships are destroyed.  Ex. if ship A has 100 attack damage, and 0 defence, and ship B has 100 attack, and 0 defence when the two ships are paired off they will both be destroyed. In the image above both ships have 100 attack and 0 shield, therefore they would both be destroyed.

However if ship B had 300 attack and 200 defence, when the ships are paired off ship A does not have enough attack to destroy ship B, so in battle A is destroyed, and B takes no damage.  In the image above One ship has 100 attack and 0 shield, therefore it would be destroyed, and the other ship would still be in play.

Successful Defence

To defend against an attack at least one of your ships must survive.

To win an attack you must have enough ships to destroy all your enemy's ships (one on one), plus at least  one additional ship. 

If you win an attack you are able to choose any one of your opponents planet cards to claim as your own.

Goals:

Unlike other projects here, our goals are here to try and help others.

With your support we can put a smile on the faces of children.

What We Need To Do:

We still need to design most of the cards, as well as create a website that allows users to freely download, and print cards themselves.  We strongly believe that fun games should be free, so we would like to make this game free for everyone to print.

List Of Cards:

Not convinced of the super fun you can have playing Planet Miner?

Grab a couple sheets of paper and make your own test-deck and see!  Once you pick them up the only way you will put them down is when your deck from us comes!

Risks and challenges

This game is still a work in progress. The game has been tested and plays very well, however the graphics for all of the cards have not been completed. We are hoping to create the graphics for at least one of the cards every day (Finish development in approximately one month.) From there we need to have a test deck printed and verify the graphics before mass printing.

The project is set to complete in December of next year, however this would be worst case. With your help we can complete it in one or two months.

In order to make printing and shipping of the game practical we need to have a minimum of 200 orders.
