About

Escape Area 51

You are one of the many conspiracies living inside Area 51 and you want to escape while the computers are updating and the gates are open. The only problem is that you need currency once you get out, but the only currency you know is Alien Tokens. You must escape with your life and as many Alien Tokens as you can get. Whoever gets out with the most Alien Tokens in 10 rounds wins. 

How to Play

To decide who goes first, look among your friends to see who looks the most like an alien. 

Roll 2 dice to move your character. You can choose the number on one or both the die to move your character. (example: you rolled a 2 and ao 3 you can either move 2, 3, or 5) You can also decide whether you want to move forward or backward after you roll. 

At the end of each round move the Round Counter up the Timer on the side of the board.

There are Events (Illuminati symbol), Misfortune (question mark), and Alien token tiles on the board. When you land on or are forced to a tile, it is activated and you must pull a card or get a token. 

Meet the Characters

Bigfoot: He likes long walks in the woods while hiding from people.

Mothman: In West Virginia born and raised. Flying around Point Pleasant is where he spends most of his days.  

Alien: The biggest celebrity of Area 51 and kinda has a big head because of it.

Missing Link: He kind of looks like that one guy from that movie. Doesn't he live in a swamp?

Lizard Person: He wears a human mask to disguise himself and walk around unnoticed 

JFK: Wait, you mean the president that got assassinated? Yes, we mean the president but did he really die?

Origin Story

A Game Jam is an event that Colleges and Universities hold for a weekend for people interested in making games.  In a Game Jam, you make a video or board game in either 36 or 48 hours. During Southern Arkansas Universities October 2019 Game Jam, two students were interested in making a board game based on the theme of Conspiracy. within 36 hours Escape Area 51 was created. No this isn't a joke, this game was created in 36 hours. We loved the game so much, we wanted to share it with the world! Hopefully one-day Escape Area 51 will be in homes of many.  

First prototype and play test of the game

Our plan

We plan is to try and self-publish this game and get into the homes of as many people as we can. We will be updating and adding more features as we go and backers will be the first to know!

Risks and challenges

We have never made a Kickstarter before nor self-published a game before. We are very new to this world, but we hope to be able to work our way around things. We are also short of money, as our team is two college students.
