About

About the Project:  

What makes Invasion unique? In Invasion, instead of fending off a hostile invasion, you get to put yourself in the shoes (or tentacles) of one of four alien races. Invasion is built around the idea of the prisoner's dilemma: You can cooperate and so defeat earth before those clever earthlings develop giant robots or massive lasers getting in your way or fight each other to see which of you will be the one to launch their nefarious scheme first.

If players act without coordinating, Earth gains steadily more technology, which in turn can make it very difficult for any of the invaders to win. Moreover, the actions that give the most resources - which are needed to win - are actions like selling technological secrets to Earth which in turn gives earth more defense cards. Only one person can win a game of invasion. So if you want to be the winning invader, you cannot just purely cooperate.  

Each victory action has an associated victory element. If that victory action is played, the player, other than the the victor, who has the most of that resource or resources will take second. Players will have to decide when and if they are going to set their sights on second, before Earth become too powerful and obliterates everyone.

Risks and challenges

The main challenge of our project is to complete the artwork. We have the board, the descriptions, and the game play completely finished as of right now. We have signed on a top notch artist who has provided the sample work that you can see above. We are here on kickstarter to raise the money for a full set of artwork.

Another challenge is in manufacturing. There is always the possibility that we might encounter unforeseen delays due to the possibly of manufacturing difficulties. However, we are dedicated and committed to this project, and promise that if this is funded, we will do our best to get you the final product as quickly as possible in the best condition possible. If any unforeseen setbacks arise, we will overcome them with hard work and determination.
