In March of the Ants, you create the shared meadow board by sending your ants to explore it, revealing and strategically placing twenty unique hexes like Fern, Pebble, and Nest of Centipedes. Each hex contains vital resources as well as an underground network of tunnels that connect you to your friends…and your enemies.
Populate new territory by breeding larvae and marching your ants onto collection sites. Will you engage competing colonies in battle, seeking to claim the land for yourself? Or will you establish peaceful, symbiotic relationships and share the spoils? Fortunately for you, there are cards that support and reward a wide variety of strategies. Collecting and managing the colony's resources in your nest is the first step in your bid for meadow dominance.
Message on Kickstarter about certain stretch-goal based upgrades:
The Custom Wood Round Marker, Centimeeples and Blank Card Stretch Goals will not be included in the base game of March of the Ants sold at retail. This makes them a great, non-exclusive perk for backing the game on Kickstarter. We are working to keep the retail price of the game as affordable as possible, which is why these wooden components will not be included in the retail version of the game.
STRETCH GOAL DETAILS:
Unlocked Stretch Goal #4 - Custom Wood Round Marker. This stretch goal will upgrade the chipboard round marker to a custom wood shape decided by the backers. Note: This stretch goal will not be included in the base retail version of March of the Ants.
Unlocked Stretch Goal #6 - Centimeeples!This stretch goal will unlock four custom wood cut Centimeeple shapes will be included in the game, dramatically bringing the ants greatest threat to life. Centipedes are the main pest that ants must deal with in the Meadow and we are excited to include this upgrade in the game. Note: This stretch goal will not be included in the base retail version of March of the Ants.
Unlocked #7 Bonus Goal - Each Kickstarted copy of March of the Ants will come with six make-your-own customizable cards! These will feature the backs of the cards and the front layout of the three card types, allowing you to add three unique evolutions to the game, two original events and one Colony Goal of your own design. Note: This stretch goal will not be included in the base retail version of March of the Ants.
Unlocked Stretch Goal #9 - Custom Starting Player Marker. This will be a wooden disc with a custom screen printed design.We have a couple ideas for the design but if you think you have a great idea please mention it in the comments. Note: This stretch goal will not be included in the base retail version of March of the Ants.
