Play test ThunderVaults debut game Defection.
UKGE 2017 is one of the first opportunities for the general public to play test ThunderVaults Ltd debut game Defection.
Featured as one of Tabletop Gaming Magazine's must see games at UKGE, Defection offers a fantastic space adventure for 2-4 players utilising both tile turning and dice combat, whilst maintaining a pick up and deliver mechanism at its core.
The goal is to hire a crew for your ship to save civilians from the war torn planet of Keleressa and transport them to safer planets, all the while battling through space encounters and defending attacks from rival players. Different crew members and ships bring different abilities to the table, and the right combination is the key to success.
The story is expanded on in the Defection graphic novel series, part one of which has just been launched and funded on Kickstarter. The graphic novel features many of the board game ensemble and the two mediums combine to increase the investment of fans in the world, characters, and story.
Another element of both the board game and the graphic novel is the rumblings of war between four races: Kizerain, Valgarz, Noxu, and Dodiza. Each player represents a race and this creates an unprecedented competition and tension.
Defection will be situated at stall A9 at the UKGE with both the board game available to play and the first part of the graphic novel, along with various other merch available to purchase. We are very excited to be at our first UKGE and looking forward to meeting as many like-minded people as we can, who will hopefully be intrigued by the world and products we have created!
