Specimen Board Game on Kickstarter

Posted: September 14, 2012 in Uncategorized

A new two player board game is up at Kickstarter – Specimen.  From the Kickstarter description…

Deep Space – Echo Quadrant 3H-8– The fully loaded commercial freighter T.C.S. Brown, its seven-member crew in suspended animation, is making the return run to Earth. In the cargo hold lies Dr. Viktor, also in suspended animation, and the mysterious specimen containers that came on board with him.

Awoken from their slumber to repair the damage caused by a meteor collision, the crew discover to their horror that Dr. Viktor has been killed and one of the mysterious specimens is loose as a result of the damage. It is a life form that will stop at nothing to survive. The seven astronauts have only the tools and resources on board to subdue and kill an organism never before encountered. An organism that evolves quickly into a nearly-unstoppable predator. Now, a simple repair job becomes a desperate struggle for survival.

SPECIMEN is a card-driven two-player board game. Each turn comprises four action rounds, in which each player can perform one of several possible game actions. The Specimen’s movements are hidden from the Crew player behind a game screen, and the Specimen’s location is only revealed when the Specimen attacks…or if the crew is lucky (or unlucky) enough to find it!

Find more information about the game at the Kickstarter web page.
