SotS: CONTROL! Now Live On Kickstarter!

Post by castewarkp » Thu Aug 16, 2018 7:05 pm

:bigmouth: - HI, GANG!

While working on The Pit: The Board Game, a card game was designed, tested, tested again with various humans from all over the place, and now it's live on Kickstarter! Please have a look at the campaign - we have some great previews that give you a good look at how the game plays - and more importantly help spread the word and support the campaign. Even if it's just for a buck right now, those backer numbers mean a lot to us! Click the banner or the giant link text below!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 16, 2018 – SWORD OF THE STARS: CONTROL! KICKSTARTER BEGINS AUGUST 16!

Kerberos Productions is returning to Kickstarter! On August 16, 2018, the Vancouver-based developers of Sword of the Stars: The Pit will offer a new tabletop project set in their popular Sword of the Stars universe.

Sword of the Stars: Control! is a fast-paced card game of planetary conquest for 3-5 players. Players take on the role of galactic warlords, recruiting mercenaries and battling for control of a rich sector of space. In each round of play, they will draw Army Cards from the deck, launch invasions to seize control of planet cards, and use a variety of Special Operations cards (SpecOps for short) to strengthen their own worlds and sabotage their opponents.

Suitable for gamers 8+ and easily playable from start to finish within an hour, Control! is an excellent choice for Family Game Nights and casual get-togethers with friends. The cards fly quickly and the game offers mechanics that are both easy to pick up and easy to teach, making it an excellent first game to introduce newcomers to the tabletop arena.

In conjunction with the launch of their Kickstarter today, Kerberos will also release a free version of the game for Tabletop Simulator on Steam. The TTS edition of the game will allow players to view all the components of the game and explore its mechanics prior to becoming Backers, as well as allowing them to play remotely with friends.

The Control! Kickstarter offers a Base Game with a full color instruction booklet, six planet boards, six counter clips, four player reference cards and 110 playing cards for $25 CAN, around $19 USA/€ 17/£ 15. A limited number of Early Bird copies will be available for the first week of the campaign, at 20% off.


For more information about the card game or the team, check out their Kickstarter page, or visit the company website.

Just some feedback, as I am not a retailer. I feel there should be one more backer level around $100 - 125 Canadian dollars. Oh, and please take my money!

I'd love to see some of that Lore Book artwork get into this game. When playing cards, artwork is a nice way to add theme and player enjoyment.

I also liked the fact that you got a Dicetower review on your KS page - I think it adds some street cred to Kerberos as a board game publisher when they utilize well-known board game reviewers.

I am a bit as well. Thought I saw some comments with the pit fundraiser that indicated there were some people that still wanted them, just didn't have the funds at the time, or somehow missed them. Maybe you should email those people, and say... hey, second chance at lore book!
