Australia’s Good Games Publishing and their U.S. partner CMON have announced Unfair, which is scheduled to release in Q1 2017.

In Unfair, players try to manage a profitable amusement park, using a card drafting system to build rides and attractions from a variety of themes from pirates and robots to ninja and gangsters, while also recruiting staff, or unleashing dirty tricks on their rivals.  The player who can create the most magnificent park will be the winner.

Unfair is the first board game design by Joel Finch, a founder of Wildfire Studios (Balls of Steel, Tumblebugs), and features artwork by Mr. Cuddington (Super Motherload, Steampunk Rally) and Phillipe Poirier (Pearl’s Peril, Fruit Ninja Kinect 2).  The game includes 354 cards, 1 double-sided game board, 86 tokens, 1 roller coaster mini, 5 player reference sheets, 2 dice, and a score pad with pencil.  The game was designed for 2 to 5 players, ages 14 and up, and plays in about 15 minutes.  MSRP has not been announced.

The project was funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign in October which drew $284,846 in pledged support from 5,236 backers, an average of $54.40 per backer.

CMON and Good Games began their partnership in August, under which CMON handles the marketing and distribution of Good Games’ products outside of Australia (see “CMON, Good Games Partner for Publishing”).
