Sabotage, the Asymmetric Team-Based Spy Game, Funds Tomorrow on KickstarterAugust 14, 2018
From Tim Fowers comes the game of Sabotage, “An asymmetric, team-based, hidden movement, roll-and-write miniatures game.” Think Battleship meets Spy vs. Spy meets Yahtzee. There’s a lot going on, but the campaign explains it better:
Sabotage is an asymmetric stealth game for two teams of two players each. One team, the villains, are trying to take over the world with their their doomsday devices. The other team, the spies, are infiltrating the villains’ secret lair to stop them. The spies must use their stealth and cunning to shut the villains down without getting caught. The villains must use their deductive reasoning and massive stockpile of weapons to prevent the spies’ subversion. 2-4 players, ages 10+, 60-90 minutes
To me, the coolest component of this game full of cool components is the box. It opens to act as a screen to prevent the opposing team from seeing what you’re doing:
Set to ship in April of 2019 (barring any sort of hiccups from our current spat of international trade wars), the game will set you back $59 US for what promises to be a unique 4 player game experience.
