Rise! at Board Game Geek Con 2011
Crash Games was at BGG Con 2011 with Rise! and we had the chance to play over 100 games of Rise! with our beloved BGG Community. Here is what players had to say about Rise!
BGG "Mom" : "This would be a great introduction to strategy for my kids"
BGG "Daper Gentleman": "I really see Rise! as a really great puzzle game"
BGG "Wargamer": "Rise! is totally a tactical war style game"
BGG "Euro Gamer": "I see Rise! as a worker placement / area control game"
Professional Game Reviewer : "It feels like cultists building monuments to allow Cthulhu to enter the world"
Everyone that we played with had their own take on Rise! Each player took the theme that was most meaningful to them and injected that into the game without even realzing they had done so. It was so amazing to see each player making the game their own!
How Rise! Plays
In Rise! you must build three towers before your opponent beats you in a battle to rise to the top! By cleverly surrounding an empty space with six workers you will break new ground and lay the foundation on a path to victory. Take caution though, if you lose sight of your opponent’s plans your towers may be left in the dust!
In this simple yet strategic game for the whole family, two players battle it out by both adding to the ever changing board and placing their workers strategically to watch their towers Rise! While seemingly simple the entire game can change with the placement of a tile or a fiendish movement with a worker. What actions will you take in a game where winners must balance their construction with the destruction of their opponent?
Break Ground and Become a Permanent Part of Rise! with The Benefactor Tier
Now you have the chance to break ground and become a permanent part of Rise! at The Benefactor Tier Reward Level. By pledging $125 you will receive everything in The City Planner Tier plus we will put your name on the foundation side of an actual Rise! tile that will be in every copy we get printed. People will always marvel at your tile! Your name being on a tile is very symbolic of the support you have given Rise! We couldn't have done it without you. You will also get a much bigger version of this tile as a "Thank You" that will be frame worthy. It will have the Rise! logo on it and your name with a thank you from us here at Crash Games!
The Ballistic Expansion Pack
This is something special we wanted to provide only for our Kickstarter backers. The Ballistic Expansion Pack adds a more "take that" element to Rise! with three different types of pieces. Let's take a look at them now.
The Anchor Piece- The Anchor Piece is nearly an immovable object. The Anchor Piece doesn't move except when he meets another one of our special pieces which we'll get to in just a minute. The Anchor Piece can wreak quite a bit of havoc when placed near an opponent's freshly laid foundation of one of their towers.
The Flash Piece - The Flash Piece moves in quickly and is gone in a flash! When placed The Flash Piece wipes out everything that is on the six tiles that surround it, except towers. Use The Flash Piece wisely though because no one's workers are safe when The Flash Piece arrives!
The Vortex Piece - The Vortex Piece swallows everything in its path! When placed the Vortex Piece begins its timer and your opponent has four turns to disarm The Vortex Piece. If The Vortex Piece isn't disarmed, on the fifth turn after placement, the Vortex Piece wipes everything from the board from the six tiles surrounding as well as the tile it is placed on. This includes The Anchor Piece, Towers as well as land tiles. To disarm The Vortex Piece a player's opponent must sacrifice five of his workers within four turns of the initial placement of The Vortex Piece.
Also included in the Ballistic Expansion Pack for Kickstarter Backers will be a high quality, double logo drawstring bag. It will have the Rise! Logo on one side and the Crash Games Logo on the flip side. This bag will be great to pack your game up and take it on the go if you prefer to keep the box at home!
