Do you believe in aliens?

Now you can help us make a game about the UFO coverup!

What makes this game special?

* Unusual theme (UFO coverup)
* Modular game board that fits together like a puzzle
* Short play time (under 60 minutes with 4 players)
* Unique shared scoring mechanic
* Highly interactive - the game depends mostly on the other players, so it's different every time
* Refined game design - winner of a game author competition, with 6 years of further development
* Box cover looks like a secret file folder

What's it about?

Welcome to the 1950’s USA - the era of big cars, rock ‘n roll, and rampant alien activity!

To prevent mass panic, the US military has ordered its top generals (you and your fellow players) to collect all evidence of aliens and store it in Area 51, a secret military base in the remote Nevada desert. You’ll need to build specialized bunkers for the advanced tools, futuristic weapons, biological samples, and alien clothing. Each bunker can only hold a certain type of artifact, and they will need to be upgraded if you want to hold the most advanced and dangerous artifacts.

You can also hire trucks or trains that allow artifacts to be re-routed to different regions and different bunkers. At the end of the game, the player whose bunkers have loaded the most valuable artifacts will be the winner.

Players: 2-6
Playing time: 60 minutes
Ages: 10+

Kickstarter Campaign

The Kickstarter campaign will launch on Wednesday, August 17th!

The campaign will end 30 days later on September 16th.

If all goes by plan the game will be available by mid-October (at the time of the Essen game fair, and can be picked up there too).

Here is the introductory video:

There will only be a limited number of hand-painted alien pawn sets available. So be sure to make your pledge early if you want those!

Re: Area 51 - Top Secret: a contest-winning strategy game on the UFO coverup to be launched soon!
Are those dates correct?
• KS launches September 16, 2016
• KS closes October 16, 2016
• Production copies available October 13-16, 2016

If those timings are right, this isn't really a crowdfunding project is it? Production must be about to start (if it hasn't started already) to meet those timelines.

You're right, the dates where wrong.

Items from stretch goals may have to be delivered later.

But you'll be delivering production games immediately after the KS project closes? So the designs have already gone to the factory for pre-production at least?

Sorry for the big mixup. I counted one month too few.

Starting date is August 17th

End date is September 16th.

We have plenty of time to produce and deliver by mid-October.

This looks interesting but I'd rather see those stretch goals (not the stickers)included in the base game by default. I feel like elements of the game are being left out this way. I think one of the reviewers mentioned this too.

These seem like things that make the game more complete and enjoyable. It would be one thing if the stretch goals were things like stickers for meeples, foil lettering on the box or upgraded cardboard which aren't necessary.
