About this project

Even if this page is written in English, Cy-Co the board game and the rules are written in English as well as in German.

Auch wenn diese Kampagnenseite englischsprachig ist, so sind die Regeln des Brettspiels sowohl in Englisch als auch Deutsch verfasst. Eine detailliertere deutsche Beschreibung des Spiels findet sich auf www.cy-co.com

Cy-Co - The Western Cyberpunk Board Game

Humankind has come to an end. Only the Robo Sapiens remain. Robots.There was only one choice left: they build their own society. But in the absence of men a power vacuum emerged. Law and order were lost. And despite of its technological advance, the west became wild again. So the Robo Sapiens created their own law men: the Cyber-Cops, Cy-Cos for short.

Cy-Co is a round-based board game in which the players play alternately actions with their hand cards and thus control their characters and direct them across the playing field. In a classic western showdown the law keeper Cy-Co confronts his nemesis Crime Evil, who is trying to take revenge on the civilians of New Cytex.

With their actions the characters move across the game board, load their weapons, shoot each other and jump through walls of the three-dimensional buildings of New Cytex.

The arrangement of buildings on the board can be altered from game to game, changing the city's appearance and thus changing the playing conditions each game.

A game takes about 30-45 min. The rules can be explained within 5 min, but offer many tactical possibilities for both casual gamers and real board game geeks.

When both players have finished their rounds the civilians move with their own card deck randomly on the game board – trying to escape the villain Crime Evil in panic.

In order to achieve their goals, the players have to strategically outmaneuver each other and thus thwart the machinations of their adversary. Who will prevail in this epic showdown of Cy-Co, the western cyberpunk board game – law or anarchy?

Risks and challenges

Even if this is our first Kickstarter campaign we are working in collaboration with Ludo Fact, one of the greatest production companies for board games in Germany. Ludo Fact produced board games like The Settlers of Catan, Colt Express, Camel Cup or 7 Wonders. Our game will be of the same quality. And with Ludo Packt, a subsidiary company of Ludo Fact, we have an experienced logistic company as our partner.

Nevertheless the shipping costs and the deadline for the project are calculations. Please note that fluctuations may occur, even if we have given our best to consider all eventualities with our partners in advance.
