About

W.R.A.S.P. is an abstract build-&-battle strategy game.

The objective of the game is simply to battle and destroy all of your opponents’ pieces, so you are the only player left on the game board long enough to claim victory.

The game is based around how much energy you have so actions like moving, attacking, and re-charging your shield require energy, some actions more than others. How effective your attacks are also depend on how much energy you risk/invest in the attack, before you roll the dice.

Instead of painstakingly trying to draft just the right combination of cards or mini figures within a set amount of draft points, this game is setup to let you use your points to build your combat team however you see fit. You can build one big unit to go for the boss strategy, you can build a half dozen small units to go for the strength of numbers, or anything in between.

Before the game begins, each player is given an identical set of game components. Secretly out of sight, players assemble their Battle Team by choosing how to configure their set of game components in the manner that will best help them to destroy their opponent’s Battle Team before their own Battle Team is destroyed. You do not have to reveal any of your units to other players until each is placed on the game board during setup.

The main game set is for 2 players, however there are 6 small expansion packs that will each add an additional player, allowing up to 8 players to play. Each small expansion pack also includes pieces to make the game board a little larger, and includes additional power cards that are unique to the pack they come in.

At the $10 and above mark, my Kick Starter supporters will each get their name in the instructions, as a supporter.

At the $50 and above mark, my Kick Starter supporters will also receive additional game board pieces, and power cards that will only be made available to kick starter supporters.

I tried to add a few tiers that are meant to give help back by offering bulk deals for resale or to custom make game prototype components or other items on my laser cutter.

WRASP is or will be; designed by me, manufactured by me, and distributed by me, or at least that is the plan. This is possible because I designed all the pieces so they can be cut out on my laser cutter, and I am using very simple packaging. I may go the route of having someone else create my special power cards, however I am currently working on making the special powers so they too are plastic bits, and not cards.

Thank You,

Ron Gardner
