Far Space Foundry plays 1-4 players at 20 minutes per player. What makes this game unique is its interesting implementation of a rondel as its core mechanism, but it also blends worker placement and spacial management on a double-sided game board to provide a streamlined and strategic playing experience.

Welcome to the Federation, Recruit. Your mission begins now!

If it wasn't clear already, we love Far Space Foundry and we think you will too. We want you to experience the streamlined gameplay and clever mechanisms yourself so you can be confident and excited to back this project. That's why we're offering a FREE, FINAL ART print & play file for you to download so you can try before you buy! Click here to download from BoardGameGeek or click here for Dropbox.

We'd love to see pictures of your homemade versions of Far Space Foundry. Feel free to tag them #FarSpaceFoundry #FundTheFederation on your social networks so we can share them.

If we can surpass our goal of raising enough funds to manufacture the base game, we have some really great ideas we'd love to be able to include for our Kickstarter backers who've supported this project.

Terra Nova Games, Publisher

Based in Austin, TX and Denver, CO, Terra Nova Games was founded in 2013 as a way to share our passion for the board gaming hobby with others. Our previous successful Kickstarters were Guile and Ophir. Our mission is to encourage face-to-face fun through interactive and innovative gameplay. We strive to bring people together in person, to use games as a means of socializing and strategizing around a table of friends.

 

Risks and challenges

This is our 3rd Kickstarter project and we are excited to be working with Panda Game Manufacturing again. Because of our prior experience with them, we already have a final production quote in hand, we know what file specifications they require, and are already familiar with their production processes and timelines.

In addition, our artist Adam McIver has also previously worked with Panda, therefore all of the art and files for the game are complete and printer-ready.

There are many other challenges that impact the project that lie outside of our control. Unpredictable circumstances such as weather conditions, customs delays, and port congestion make it common for board game production to be delayed. We've done all we can to ensure that this game will be delivered on time if funded.

With your help, we can have the funds to print the game, overcome the various obstacles that are in the way, and make sure you are delivered a quality product. We ensure you will be kept informed at every step in the development, printing, and delivery processes.

Thanks for your support!
