Raid & Trade

Raid & Trade

Our friends over at Mage Company sent along some news about their latest project, Raid & Trade, which is on Kickstarter now. It’s got minis, a nice looking board and some pretty hefty looking components, along with what looks to be some great game play. You can check out the rules for yourself right here.

Here’s the official press release:

From the ashes of a devastating third World War, a precious few Golden Cities emerge offering hope to those who struggle for survival in the wastelands. Players explore the ruins of the modern world completing quests, honing their skills and maneuvering for social status in order to claim a precious spot as a citizen with a Golden City. To enter the Golden city you must:
Become an expert: Reach 20 skill points

Serve the city: Fulfill three secret quests

Become a nobleman: Get the most possible character points

In each turn, the players can spend action points to do several actions such as moving through the city, raiding buildings, attacking other players, and more. Each player has a specific skill — mechanic, trader, electrician, bodyguard and medic — and has his own unique items to build; those items can be traded off against other items or resources.

The board of the game is formed by 9 different tiles. All over the map, the players find different buildings which they can raid. Each time a player raids a building, a raid card of this type of building is taken and read, which leads to specific circumstances taking place. The player will be made to make various decisions including important moral decisions! Upon resolving the various decisions, you will receive character points. The choices you make, for good or for bad, will lead to specific perks and advantages (or disadvantages) during the progress of the game.

Check out Raid & Trade on Kickstarter and be part of this post apocalyptic universe that includes exclusive KS stretch goals, hand painted minis and much more:


About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.
