FlickFleet: Box of Flicks 2 Kickstarter
Ein etwas spezielles „Brett“spiel wird derzeit bei Kickstarter finanziert.
This campaign introduces an all new set of Kickstarter-exclusive add-ons known as Box of Flicks 2 to FlickFleet. The Box of Flicks 2 starts out as 10 all new add-ons to the game, and as we unlock the Stretch Goals more add-ons will get added to the box. Backers will vote on which of the available stretch goal add-ons they would like included each time we unlock a Stretch Goal.
The add-ons will also be available individually in the Pledge Manager – you can pledge for a couple of the unlocked add-ons and select which ones you would like in the Pledge Manager afterwards.
You will be able to pledge for the base game, Box of Flicks 2, both or everything (including the first Expansion: Scenery and Scenario Pack). We’ve also added Box of Flicks 1 from our last campaign as an add-on at backers‘ request.
This time we’ve included a whole bunch of Add-Ons designed by FlickFleet fans – don’t worry – they are getting a credit and a royalty payment!
New to FlickFleet? Read on to find out what it is. If you’re a returning fan, you can skip ahead to the Box of Flicks 2 🙂
FlickFleet is a tactical 2-player space battle dexterity game in which you flick your ships into position and then flick dice at your opponent’s ships to damage their systems and destroy them. It’s an indie labour of love made by Paul and Jack of Eurydice Games in their homes in the UK. Watch the tutorial below to find out why it has an average rating of 8.2 on BGG.
It usually plays in about 20 minutes, but if you want a longer game you can build larger fleets with the ships in the base game box:
This campaign is to fund a new expansion: Box of Flicks 2 aimed at our FlickFleet fans, however if you are new to FlickFleet you can pledge for a copy of the game and you will be able to include the new expansion in your pledge too.
We’ve run three successful FlickFleet Kickstarters already:
- the first for the game,
- the second for a reprint of the game and the Scenario Pack expansion
- the third for the first Box of Flicks add-on pack.
All of them fulfilled early, except one reward last year that was delayed by a month by COVID-19 related acrylic shortages.
We were again hoping to take our spare stock to conventions this summer, but with COVID-19 still rampant, we’re running another short and sweet Kickstarter campaign instead while we await getting together to test the next FlickFleet content (two new alien species that allow for up to four players) once COVID restrictions are eased in the UK.
The Box of Flicks 2 is a new expansion consisting of the following 10 all new add-ons for FlickFleet and any unlocked Stretch Goals. Box of Flicks 2 content can be used to create bigger fleets and more exciting battles, but requires the FlickFleet base game to play.
Add-ons will be available in two forms: deluxe which are etched with detail and their ship name (individually these are £5), or standard which are unetched (individually £3). All of the photos below are the deluxe prototype versions and may change as they are tweaked in the next couple of months.
Kommen wir zu den Pledges:
The FlickFleet ships are laser-cut in Paul’s garage from 5mm thick acrylic. They come in two versions:
- deluxe which are etched with detail and the ships‘ names for the capital ships,
- standard which are unetched.
Choose from the pledges below and you’ll be able to include more add-ons or an extra box in the Pledge Manager.
Please note: At backers‘ request we have also decided to reprint Box of Flicks 1 from our last campaign. Because this decision was made halfway through the campaign, the ‚Standard Everything!‘ and ‚Deluxe Everything!‘ pledge levels do not include it. If you would like to add it to your pledge, please select the relevant (deluxe/standard) add-on to add to your pledge
Alternatively you can back for two add-ons. You will be able to choose which add-ons you want or add more individually in the Pledge Manager afterwards.
Die Stretch Goals:
When we unlock a Stretch Goal we’ll release a new add-on. Backers can vote for which locked add-on from the list below to add to the available options to buy. ‚Standard Box of Flicks 2‘, ‚Deluxe Box of Flicks 2‘, ‚Standard Game & Box of Flicks 2‘, ‚Deluxe Game & Box of Flicks 2‘, ‚Standard Everything!‘ and ‚Deluxe Everything!‘ pledges will receive the new add-on for free. We’ve already unlocked and chosen four (Missile Corvettes, ECM Platform, Pirate 1 and Pirate 2) and a fifth vote is coming soon!
When a Stretch Goal is unlocked backers will have a chance to vote on which of the ideas below we unlock. All pledges which include the Box of Flicks 2 will get the newly unlocked add-on automatically added to their pledge. Other backers will be able to add it to their pledge in the Pledge Manager if they would like it too. All photos below show deluxe (etched) prototypes, which might change slightly in the next couple of months.
Shipping prices are provided here for the Two Add-Ons, Box of Flicks, game, game and Box of Flicks and Everything pledges. If you include add the Box of Flicks 1 add-on or extra individual add-ons in the Pledge Manager the shipping might increase.
Die Kampagne ist finanziert und läuft noch 7 Tage.
