Capstone is excited about to announce a new strategy game for 1 to 4 players, Cloud Age, designed by the award winning author Alexander Pfister. This game teases an innovative card-sleeving system which will make the game even more immersive and a campaign system that will allow players to get started playing quickly. It is scheduled to be released in November and pre-orders are available now through October 26.
Fifteen years ago, the mysterious secret society “Cloud” sabotaged countless oil production sites to destabilise the world. The resulting environmental catastrophe had disastrous effects on the entire planet. Now, years later, you travel above the dried-out landscape in your airships, searching for a better life. You visit cities, send out drones to collect resources, and battle Cloud militia.
An innovative card-sleeving system makes possible a new, more immersive, form of resource gathering. Players try to predict which cloud-covered terrain will contain the desired amount of resources, or where additional actions are possible. Resources allow players to develop useful upgrades for their airships, or attract new crew members.
CloudAge is a mix of engine-building, deck-building, and resource management. The campaign system makes it easy to start playing quickly, with new elements being introduced into the game as players progress through the chapters. While you play, you also experience and help guide the story. For a regular board game experience, you can also play stand-alone story spin-offs as single scenarios while still capturing all that CloudAge has to offer!
