This looks fun. Alvaro G. Echave is an artist and designer from Spain and his Kaboom Universe Kickstarter is already 204% funded with three weeks still to run. You can check out the campain page here.
At the time of publishing, there are three days left on the early bird offers. This means for €15 you can get the full game and unlocked stretch goals (plus shipping). There’s a limited number of the €49 collector pack too.
If you miss the early bird it’s not that much more and the game will set you back €17 which is about £15.
In Kaboom Universe you’re playing as aliens trying to rescue dinosaurs from earth before the asteroid hits. The catch? You’re squabbling over who gets to have a T-Rex as a pet. This is entirely understandable to me!
It’s a game for 6 and over, played with 2 to 8 people and will last anywhere between 15 minutes to 40. The unknown element is when the kaboom card hits the table and the big asteroid hits earth and there’s no more dinosaurs left to save.
There’s a lot to be said for Echave’s art.
