You are one of many researchers hoping to uncover enough evidence of the UFO phenomenon that the world must at long last believe.
In the board game UFO Hunter, each player travels across the globe looking for tangible, extra-terrestrial evidence. In order to beat the competition to this acclaim, players must carefully choose the best time to travel, buy just the right equipment, conduct the proper research, and publish rumors of new sightings. Rumors may turn out to be nothing, or even a trap set by governments or private individuals. Even exposing hoaxes can be beneficial to leading you to the truth and ultimately to victory.
Researchers and publishers may choose to back their own discoveries by placing a “stake” or amount of money on their rumor. In this way they may share in the evidence that may be discovered by another player. Or it may be possible that they are leading other players into danger.
Players keep a stable of contacts in case they run into problems. Benefactors can help them get back to business if they become stranded. Aviators help them travel farther. Inventors help them build more and better detection equipment.
UFO Hunter is a game for 3 to 6 adventurers, ages 12 and up, designed by Mark Hanny, designer of Joe Magic Games since 1990.

Risks and challenges
There are always risks with making a board game. The most significant one I see is delivering on time if the game goes bigger than expected. In that case we will have to choose an alternate production method and have the games produced overseas. That will slow the delivery time by a couple of months. Never the less, that would be a great problem to have. We look forward, as always, to making this fun game for you!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
