Without Kickstarter.com and you helping support us, this game could not have made it this far.  We really appreciate all your support and especially Kickstarter.com for providing a format where we can gain the support of you, our fans.  We have a really awesome announcement:

Whats New for Naturally Disastrous:

The dark secrets the Mad Scientist has kept hidden are now exposed in this new expansion to Naturally Disastrous.  This means your team can now explore the Vault and resolve new Encounters.  The Encounters you reveal will either help the natives or help you.

The encounters in the vault change every game and may help or hinder you on your search

The Vault is not the only new obstacles to present itself.  There will also be a new Jungle tile with a monstrosity that will surely test your skills.

This double sided tile activates with an odd or an even roll on the D10.

The biggest new surprise though, is the Mother Ship.  Headquarters has not heard from you for a while so they sent the Mother Ship to see if you were all just goofing off.  They surely did not expect to find you in your current state of distress.  None the less, they are here to help you stop the destruction of Earth.  New actions are available in the form of launching pods to slow the Earths self destruction, Repairing the Mother Ship and destroying the new Space Fighters the Natives have sent to destroy the Mother Ship.    

As the fighters get closer to the Mother Ship, their chances of destroying it increase.  You can of course prevent the destruction if you can manage to get onto the Mother Ship.

Of course the Natives still think you're up to no good and they have some new weapons in the form of a Tank and newly developed space Fighter ship that they will be throwing at you.  

The Tank destroys pods placed by the Mother Ship, The Fighters actually fly towards the Mother Ship and try to destroy it.

A cool feature about this game is if your friends show up late to game night they can just grab a character card and join in on the fun at the start of a new round.  Thematically you can say they just woke up a little later than the rest of you did.  

To win the game you simply need to get the Communication Arrays in place to heal the planet, then get on the Mother Ship.

To lose you just need to let the Earth finish destroying itself, lose your tech to the Secret Agent or simply let the Mad Scientist get his hands on you and turn you into one of his minions.  If you're mutated and the game wins, you win, cause your now bad.  Makes sense right? 

On your turn you will do the following: 

1- Naturally Disastrous Event, roll the 10 sided die. Consult the map and perform the action indicated on the map tile.  These events are one of the following: Volcano Eruption, Flood, Earthquake, Lightning Storm, Tornado, Violent Explosive gas Pockets, Extra Native Actions or even another Alien Race abducting you.

2- All Natives on the map, which include the Sniper, Secret Agent & Mad Scientist take an action. They always do something bad like shoot you, steal your tech, or Mutate you.  Mutated Aliens take an action during this stage as well.  

Natives: Guard, Mad Scientist, Secret Agent, Sniper & The Alien Ship.
Natives: Guard, Mad Scientist, Secret Agent, Sniper & The Alien Ship.

 3- You may take up to 3 actions. They can be the same or different. The available actions are Move up to two spaces, Engage an enemy by moving onto their space, Probe a hidden item on your space, Pick up / Drop / Trade an item, Rest by healing yourself, or friendly units, or the Earth itself, or perform a special action as indicated on your player board. Once you're done play moves to the next player.   

A few new friends are joining the team and will help you along the way.  If you get in on the $75 pledge level you will be allowed to name one of  these new Characters.

   "Naturally Disastrous is an intense little Coop unlike anything else out there. You're a member of something like an Intergalactic Greenpeace simultaneously dealing with post apocalyptic creatures, earthquakes, fires, floods, you name it. Great fun!"    

 --- Kip Armstrong @ SaltCon 2015  

"Received the game from the first KS and I've had a chance to play it, and it's really quick and fun. It seems simple at first, but there's a deceptive deep amount of stuff you can do it. I'm glad you're making a second round to get more people interested in this game. Naturally Disastrous is a totally naturally wicked good time!" 

 ---John Silveira, 11-2016
