Abandon Planet has been delivered to 2,000 backers and just last week hit retail!!! We hope you love your copy and have gotten a chance to play in a number of different groups and player counts. If you've played, be sure to rate the game on Boardgamegeek.com!
Have a rules question? Check the FAQ! We've got some great answers already, and the more you ask the more we can support rules questions that others might have. Also, we really like the new website and hope you'll check it out!
And... we're announcing our next game!
Black Hole Council is a 4-8 player intense negotiation and deduction game about throwing entire planets into a black hole. Whereas Resistance has hidden roles, in Black Hole Council you have five hidden goals. The better you meet these goals during the 2-minute negotiations, the more influence you'll gain. And the better you deduce your opponents, the more you can block their road to victory. It's a loud and reckless brawl, and it's coming to Kickstarter in just 30 days!
In fact, today is Day ONE of our Pre-Kickstarter 30! Like the planet above? Our own Bobby Reichle designed it, and you can help name it! So today we are beginning TWO contests:
1. Like this post on our Facebook page! We'll be posting a new Planet every day for 30 days (30 planets, 30 days!) For each post that you like, you'll have one extra chance to win a free copy of the game. We'll be raffling off FIVE copies, so Like every post for the best chance to win.
2. Even better, we want your help in naming these planets! After Liking the post, Comment with your idea for the planet's name, and Like the names you think are great that others suggest! We'll take the best names and let Backers choose during the campaign which ones stick. If you're a backer and one of your names wins, you'll receive a FREE second copy of the game!
The contests start today, right now! Like all the Planet posts to win a free copy, make Comments for new name ideas, and be sure to Like other names you love to see them in the final game!
We hope you're excited for this next step in the Orange Machine universe. We're extremely proud of Abandon Planet and we learned a lot in the process. Now we're ready to kick in space doors and take space names for this next project. So we'll see you on Facebook, on BGG, here in the comments, and very soon on the Kickstarter page for Black Hole Council!
