Mothership Funded - Brikwars Promo ended, thanks everyone!

We're funded! Thanks for getting involved everyone. If you missed out on the FREE Brikwars community card pack (by not PMing me with your order) they'll be an opportunity later on to get the cards.


Thanks again to everyone who got involved!

Hey Brikwars people, I’m excited to share with you something that I’ve been working on for the last few years. It’s a brand new, original board game borne from a love of Brikwars. If it wasn’t for Mike Rayhawk or you guys, I wouldn't have designed my very own board game.

The game is called Mothership. It mixes the concepts of miniature wargaming with a traditional board game. It balances chance with skill. It simplifies dice wargaming while keeping the strategy. Most of all, it’s fun.

-------------------------
Print & Play
You guys are the first to see the print and play version. There are some changes some to parts of the game, but it plays exactly the same. BYO Dice.
-------------------------


I want you guys to be involved. I want to get exclusive cards made just for our community. What do I mean?

In my game, aside from the usual move and attack stuff you’re used to, players can shake things up with action cards. Action cards that add attack power, increase movement that kind of thing.


The Pitch

How to Play


Any questions have or suggestions, I’d love to hear from you!
Image


What I want from YOU:


I want you guys to come up with card ideas / themes that can be Brikwars related. Take inspiration from Brikwars lore, stories, anything you want really.

To get an idea of the kind of cards I have at the moment, have a look at this link. You guys have already come up with some great ideas so far! Just so we don't double up, here is the full list of current cards.

NOTE: The game in it's current form is finished and more importantly balanced. These cards you lovely people will help design will be only for Brikwars forum members for our own titillation and inside jokes. That said, to get an idea of how the game plays, see the following videos:

I want a card that makes it so a player can get robot ships ( like special weapons that the player don't get like nukes ,death lazers, bio weapons,ect)
Also I want to be able to teleport soldiers on enemy ships.

Edit also is there going to be a campaign? because I would love to start out as a small pirate warband then get stuff like capitail ships
Blokbots are kinda cool

What about a sabatouer card that causes some sort of malfunction (movement reduction, no damage for one turn, opponent can't play action card, or something else like that).

Maybe an EMP attachment or something too.

Edit: Also, great pitch! I'd possibly be interested in obtaining a copy

Automatically win the game after 2 turns if you build a wonder or collect all the relics.

Thank for all the interest guys! Just so we don't double up on ideas, here is a full list of the current cards in the finished game:

That sounds like a cool idea, have you got an examples of campaigns in board games?

...lol thanks I'll make sure you get your cut!

I might put that on the short list. There is only one ship that has a shield, the rest are smaller ships. I might have card that 'hacks' another ship or what ever. I'll put that on the list.

I adjusted the Levels to make the white areas white instead of gray.

An area of effect card of some kind? Possibly for clearing out swarms of fighters. Also, you need an "Almighty Benny" card as some kind of Hero, Let him allow you to reallocate your Motherships stats a second time per turn or something. And I hope that "Orange Transparent Ore" is in there somewhere as a resource.

Anyway, awesome game, I am looking forward to turning up to board games society with a copy in the future.

You have references to other intellectual property, this might not be a great idea.
Red Leader
Vespene Gas
Tiberium

There may be others.

Perfect! I really like the reallocate mothership stats and definitely adding transparent ore. The area of affect might be a liiiiitle overpowered but ill add it to the list and maybe tweak it later.

Haha you noticed! Mothership was originally designed as a hobby and I had no intention of selling it. Most of hte IP's have been renamed and come under 'parody' or 'satire'. So,

Tibrerium = Diberium
Vespene Gas = Ves-Peen Gas

And red leader is actually okay, it's generic enough that it doesn't infringe on any specific IP. Let me know tough if you have concerns about other references you find though because I have been racking my brain about that subject!

Red Leader is from Star Wars, it is kind of generic, but if you instantly know what it is, maybe its too specific?
Up to you really.

I saw a tech title, Nuclear Missile.
But its not an atomic explosion, which is what the name implies. ( Unless it is an atomic explosion, I don't know.)
Its more like a teleporting attack.

mmMMMmm peen gas.
