The space-themed stand-alone title is designed by Eric M. Lang, Thiago Aranha, Guilherme Goulart, and Fred Perret. Starcadia Quest has players lead a two-member crew through different scenarios in a branching campaign of battles to beat the evil Commander Thorne. Each crew has their own reasons for wanting to defeat Thorne, and they are definitely not working cooperatively with other players. This game replaces the standard campaign book with Setup Cards, so each scenario plays out differently. There are also Event cards and high-tech weapons which change the stakes each play-through.
The box contains 30 highly-detailed plastic figures, 10 game tiles, 10 custom dice, 8 counter bases, 4 crew dashboards, 4 crew shuttles, 1 monster dashboard, 220 tokens, 77 cards, 1 campaign sheet pad, and a rulebook. The game is for 2 – 4 players, ages 14 and up, and plays in 1 hr. MSRP was not announced. Backer fulfillment is currently planned for August 2019.
The Kickstarter has raised $278,809 from 2,677 backers as of this writing ($104.15 /backer average), having met its $200,000 goal in a few hours. The short 14 day campaign will continue through September 11.
