Strutting onto the Tabletop scene with their debut game Cat Quartet launched their Gladius Kickstarter today. As a PAX South Indie Tabletop award winner, I expected big things, but being fully funded in 2 hrs must have co creators Alex Uboldi and Victoria Caña grinning from ear to ear.
Gladius is an award-winning board game where players take the role of cunning Roman spectators trying to make the most money by betting on and rigging the gladiatorial games. Each round, players place bets on competing gladiator teams. Then through the skillful use of underhanded tactics, players can help and hinder teams to alter the outcome of each battle. In this game for 2-5 players, can you outwit your opponents to turn a profit, or will you be left empty-handed?
You can still back this amazing game, by heading to their kickstarter.
For just $25 you can get your own copy of the game, and for $10 you can download a digital printout to to send your gladiators to glory. Watch soon for an exclusive interview with co-creators Alex Uboldi and Victoria Caña where we talk how Gladius developed and what’s coming next for these talented game designers.
