Creation of the game was inspired by classic nouvelle The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells.



What we have in the box?

- A map of Great Britain divided by areas.
The aliens landed in Scotland at the North. Their aim is simple - desintegrate all population. Humans strategy is different - partisan's attack and trying to survive. Tanks, warsips and different structures help.
So humans have backward technology but good infrastructure. Aliens can build only near already existant structures but improved technologies.


- Two decks of cards
Fully asymmetrical. Different technology, buildings and actions.
Highly technological cards like death rays, plasma synthesis on one side and mobilization, mine fields and artillery cards on other.



- Miniatures. Each side has their own minis. Aliens work with Tripods and UFOs, humans have tanks and warships.

- Mechanics.
Deck-building with area control. It is not a wargame, it is close to "Star realms + Tyrants of the Underdark" combination.
For 2 players.

- Counters.
For different structures (bunkers, factories, mine fields etc)

You can look and test this game at Essen fair. Stand 2.5.17
Jet Games Studio and Lavka Games.

Don't hesistate to ask us if you have any questions.

That is great to hear. I am looking forward to it. Do you have an idea when the game will be released?

By the way: I liked the art as far as I played it.
