The El Alamein Kickstarter is now live!
Kamikaze Games has launched their latest game, El Alamein, on Kickstarter. The campaign will be open until Tuesday, October 20th at 12 PM EST. El Alamein is a deck building card game for 2-5 players set in a fictional World War 2 Universe and is an extension to Barbarossa (Anime Card Game From Japan) published earlier this year.
The El Alamein Kickstarter Campaign will focus on commissioning new card art by the incredible artists of El Alamein and Barbarossa. With the help of backers, for every stretch goal reached during the 34 day campaign, Kamikaze Games will commission new art and produce even more amazing rewards and add-ons.
A little more about El Alamein….
El Alamein takes the established rules of Barbarossa and expands them to include new game mechanics such as the British Counterattack; Right after taking a city when you think it’s safe to rest, beware! The British may launch a counterattack against you!
If you are unfamiliar with Barbarossa or El Alamein, El Alamein is a deck building card game for 2-5 players (loosely) based on the battles of the German Afrika Korps during World War II. While it is an extension of the game Barbarossa and picks up where Barbarossa left off, El Alamein is a stand alone game. Each player takes on the role of one of General Rommel’s subordinates and will start with very basic cards representing the main forces you command. During the game, players will add reinforcements to their initial 8-card decks, fight battles, and attempt to complete military objectives such as defeating enemies and capturing cities.
