AV Studio Games is in the midst of a Kickstarter to fund a trio of new Nano9games. Up for crowdfunding is 12 Patrols, Clinic, and Asteroid Miners. You can score any one of the Nano9games titles for a $19.00 pledge, or snag all three, for a $49.00 pledge through June 30th with an expected delivery in May of next year.
About the games:
After its breakthrough success in 2021, the NANO9GAMES are back! 3 New games to master, more great illustrations from Ilya Baranovsky. Is your brain ready to play these 3 new tough and complex games?
A Nano9Game is a game that only contains 9 Cards, 9 Dice and 9 Cubes. Nano means something tiny!
Nano9Games are all designed around the number 9!
All Nano9Games take a minute to setup and last less than 30 minutes! But the game play is very intensive!
12 Patrols is a puzzly, solo, mostly abstract strategy game brought to life with fantastic art by Ilya Baronovsky. 12 Patrols started as an entry in BoardGameGeek’s 9 card design contest, finishing 2nd place overall. The design intent from the start was to create a compact, brain-burner type of solo puzzle game. The wonderful card art transforms this puzzle into a struggle for a leader to protect all nine of their regions with a patrol of dice and cubes placed between each region, resulting in 12 Patrols.
Next is probably the most ambitious game of the series. Making a nano game of Clinic Deluxe Edition has been an incredible challenge with lot of constraints. As you can imagine, using only 9 cards, 9 dice and 9 cubes for a game with more than 200 tiles, 180 Wooden meeples and 28 pages of rules, shrinking down to a Nano9games has been an amazing designing “job”.
In Asteroid Miners you lead your crew of fellow belters in mining the asteroid belt, excavating valuable minerals in the cold of space.
It is a 2-player dice-rolling game where you excavate precious metals using a precision drill and upgradable mining equipment, digging deeper and deeper into a series of asteroids.
You will use a dice pool to manipulate your drill components to match the minerals in your current excavation section.
After successful excavations you may sell your minerals to a fluctuating Metal Market, trying to earn more profit than your competitor to win the game.
