  •  Players start with 9 individual character cards, which need to be played on the grid.
     
  •  Each character has its own combat statistics and flip abilities. 
  •  Attack and defence rolls can be combined with character statistics and upgrades.
     
  •  Credits and Zetta Orbs are the victory points of the game, collect these to win 
  •  The shared market place gives players a place to spend their credits, choose wisely.
     
  •  Controlling card positions on the grid will determine who has tactical control. 

*For further mechanisms in the game, please refer to the reviews or downloadable rules booklet below.

The Two Free Expansions
 

The expansions give a real change of pace to vector wars and the game will come with 2 free expansion.

1) Capture The Flag
 

In capture, the flag the last person to hold the flag will earn 10 Zetta Orbs for there team. This large number of victory points can easily be the difference between a win and a loss. When picking up the flag you add a blue cube to the shield slot of the character carrying the flag. This character receives a bonus to his player stats however your shield cube slot is now taken up so be careful as this makes you more vulnerable.

*see instruction manual to learn more.

 2) Light The Grid
 

These cards give users a secret mission during the game to try and claim as many of these highlighted areas as possible on the grid and earn Zetta Orbs. Claiming this grid card is a free action and will earn you 2 Z.O's per area you control which matches the highlighted areas on your grid card. This adds a strong area control element to the game and really changes the strategy.

Manufacturing
 

A first look at the core edition pre-production copy
 

Vector Wars has been extensively tested and has already passed the preliminary stages of manufacturing. We are happy to announce that Meeple City Games and Longpack Games have been working together for some time to produce a pre-production copy, which we hope to present to you soon.

Eli Mamane would like to thank several people who were involved in the early stages who, I believe, have helped me to get to this point.

My local games shop and still my favourite place to go and buy board games, Leisure Games, Finchley, England. These guys allowed me to have playtesting evenings at the shop and supported me at UKGE this year. Thank you so much for your help.

I would like to thank David King, James Graham and Charlie Charles who were some of the first playtesters of the game. All gave excellent advice early on, which made for some critical improvements of the game.

Last, but not least, my family and my gaming group who have supported me along the way.

Risks and challenges

Will you get your game?

Vector Wars is not the first Kickstarter Eli Mamane has completed. Eli has already delivered a comic called Squatters to backers worldwide. Although producing a board game is a very different challenge, we have LongPack Games manufacturing the board game and Spiral Galaxy Games doing fulfilment. This provides a strong base for both manufacturing and delivery. Both companies are known for their reliability and quality.

Delivery?

We hope to deliver in the second quarter of 2020.

Brexit?

This does have a risk attached to it but not to the game itself. The risk here is mostly in the cost of delivery. We will try to do everything in our power to negate any of the negative effects of Brexit. However, it is important to mention it as it is a risk.

Balancing and design?

Vector Wars is an extremely well-tested and balanced game. Simulation modelling and mathematical equations sit at the back of this game to maintain an almost perfect balance. The game has been tested continuously for almost a year with many hundreds of games completed. The graphic design is complete and the card art is final. The box and instructions are final and are available for you to view in the Kickstarter above.

Some limited amounts of work will remain based on how our planned Stretch Goals unfold.

Communication?

Communication is key to any good Kickstarter. We will be keeping everyone in the loop with updates approximately every 2-3 weeks as the project moves forward and comes closer to the delivery date.
