A very interesting styled worker placement game is currently up for crowdfunding for CrossCut Games. In Transmissions, designed by Adam West, players will build a group of robots and lead them in creating new ideas and completing projects. The game is for one to four players, ages 10+, and plays in around 30 to 45 minutes. Transmissions is nearing 300% funding and you can reserve a copy of the base game for a $40.00 pledge, or score the deluxe edition with robot minis for a $54.00 pledge, through May 7th. Expected delivery is January 2022.
About the game:
Based on the lovely illustrated world of Matt Dixon, Transmissions brings his world of mechanical friends to life. In the game, players share robots as workers moving around a rondel-styled board, collecting engrams and electricity. These are used to gather ideas to improve your use of the robots or items to score points at the end of the game. You also build your own set of connected, flowing pipes while gathering birds and butterflies to score even more points. The game ends when no ideas are left, a player’s robots are complete, or no pipes remain to be built. After an equal number of turns, the player with the highest total score wins!
The game features a unique mechanism of worker selection and sharing with incredible illustrations, adorable miniature robots, and very welcoming play for everyone!
