Starcadia Quest: Kickstarter läuft
Der Kickstarter zum neuen CMoN Projekt läuft!
The smash hit Arcadia Quest series goes to space!
Starcadia Quest is an action-packed board game where 2 to 4 players control Crews of Heroes in a sci-fi campaign to defeat the foes of the Starcadian Alliance. As alien monsters react to the heroes‘ actions, no one is stuck playing the role of game master. But don’t kid yourselves: the Crews are not working together at all! Only one intrepid Crew will be ultimately victorious, so players must battle each other as well as against monstrous enemies.
Set in the same colorful universe as the highly-acclaimed Arcadia Quest game series, Starcadia Quest is an all-new standalone entry that draws from the electrifying gameplay from its fantasy counterpart, optimizes the experience, and takes it to a universe where no Hero has gone before!
Heroes come from all quadrants of the Galaxy, each bringing unique abilities (not to mention their charming personality!) to their Crews. But it’s not all fun and adventures in Space. Supreme Commander Thorne, a cold-hearted mastermind has assembled an army of some of the most nefarious creatures to do his bidding and the Alliance is the only thing standing in his way to bring „order“ to the Galaxy.
Speaking of order, the introduction of a modular Monster dashboard allows players to deploy a variety of different monsters from Thorne’s preposterous army, making each play session unique!
In Starcadia Quest, pre-game time is fast and simple. While the ancestral Arcadians resorted to books and scrolls, in Starcadia many elements of the board are conveniently displayed on the Game Tiles, and all information needed to prepare a scenario comes in a single Setup card, ensuring players are ready to roll in an instant! Plus, the latest Intergalactic Census shows a roaring approval for the added personality that each area of the space station now has, with their own tasteful decorations that provide neat game effects.
While on their galactic exploits, players attempt to defeat enemies and collect shiny new gear while accomplishing Quests across a variety of scenarios that span a branching campaign that narrates the Crew’s epic endeavor against Thorne. Quests have to be completed in Order, unfolding the story being played. Each scenario won takes the Crew one step closer to becoming the most notable, the most courageous – and of course – the most gallant Crew in the entire universe!
The final frontier can be a scary, unpredictable place at times. Like, at every turn. Literally. At the end of every turn, players draw and play Event cards, which not only activate or spawn monsters on the board (I did say it could be a scary place, didn’t I?) but also introduce unexpected and wacky effects! The whole station may bump into an asteroid sending people flying all over the place and, occasionally, there may be an electrical failure that zaps those unfortunate enough to be in the wrong place at the wrong time!
Ever since the first fancy blades and armored vests were crafted in Arcadia, the Guilds have enjoyed the finest weaponry around. Fast-forward a few millenia and, well, that still holds true! The Crews have at their disposal the latest cutting-edge technology, from laser pistols to holo-swords. There’s always new loot to seek that will appeal to everyone’s tastes!
Und das ist im Core Pledge drin:
The Starcadia Quest core box comes with:
- 30 Highly-Detailed Plastic Figures
- 10 Game Tiles
- 10 Custom Dice
- 8 Counter Bases
- 4 Crew Dashboards
- 4 Crew Shuttles
- 1 Monster Dashboard
- 220 Tokens

Space can be a wild place, however, and a pirate raid is always just around the corner!
Captain Wet Willy has an eye for a prize: YOUR prize! At last, all pirates are united under his black flag, and they really don’t care much who they’re looting today. The Starcadian battle against Thorne is exactly the distraction they needed to loot ALL THE THINGS!
Starcadia Quest: ARRRmada is a plug-and-play expansion box that adds a whole new set of perils to the game. A gang of Pirate enemies have reached the Starcadian Alliance, and if left alone they will board the station, fire their turbo lasers, and loot all precious things!
Luckily for the Alliance, two new intrepid Heroes have followed Captain Wet Willy and are ready to join the Crews!
The most striking new feature of the ARRRmada expansion, however, is its brand new Pirate Corvette, a dashboard designed not only to hold cards and miniatures of enemies but also to track and activate the Pirate Assault cards, a special deck that governs the Pirates‘ dastardly actions against the space station!
ARRRmada is a modular expansion that can be plugged into and played with any other Starcadia scenario – but players must be extra careful when facing Pirates: for each Pirate Assault card that is activated while any Pirates are on the board, they will steal away some of the Upgrade tokens that would have otherwise been available loot for players!
Featuring a brand new Campaign with 6 new Scenarios against Captain Wet Willy and his mates, new Upgrade tokens and 3 new Game Tiles, ARRRmada offers a ton of new content to your Starcadia experience!
ARRRmada comes with:
- 12 Highly-Detailed Plastic Figures
- 3 Game Tiles
- 41 Cards
- 22 Upgrade Tokens
- 1 Pirate Corvette Dashboard
- 1 Campaign Sheet Pad

Having floated around the galaxy in his „tin can“ for many years of intense space action, fighting off monsters comes naturally to an ace pilot like Major Tomm. He’s developed an extraordinary aim, which allows him to fire multiple shots if he gets lucky enough!
