Long ago in a time of war, the six alien planets of the Abyssi cluster worked hard to find diplomacy and eventually came to form a fragile democracy. For humankind, the discovery of this cluster could mean abundant and cheap energy in the form of the earth-rare Atlum crystal. Now several human factions are racing in to grab a share.
In Sovereign Skies, you play one of the powerful houses of Old-Earth now orbiting the six planets of the Abyssi cluster to recruit alien senators for favors and to establish occupation by constructing and activating bases for energy and influence.
Each turn you’ll move your Mothership and perform 1 to 3 of the actions on a Planet to help you earn the Energy and Influence you’ll need to win the game. Add a Ship, collect a Politic card, and/or perform a Planet’s Special action.
- Big strategic depth in a small box
- Worker-movement action selection rondel
- Unique scoring mechanism for area control
- Plays as quickly as 45 minutes in a 4 player game
- Beautiful art and graphic design
Risks and challenges
Between everyone at Deep Water Games have over 30 kickstarters under our belt, so we feel very confident in our ability to deliver a great game! However, like with any project there's lots of unknown risks that will come up along the way. Production and shipping logistics being the prime example. We've made sure to give ourselves plenty of time to properly and expertly execute this project!
We have experienced and solved probably every issue that a Kickstarter can have. With our largest campaign, and most recent, we had partners who truly didn’t know what they were doing and have since reevaluated our whole logistics chain. From top to bottom we have made changes in the process of producing and getting products into backers hands. I hope if you were a backer of any of our previous campaigns you will appreciate the improvements and care we have taken in our projects!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
