Xia Legend of a Drift System Kickstarter


Card & Board Games


I cam agross this game on Kickstarter recently. There is only about a week left, but I thought I would share it in case people were interested.

It is basically a sandbox space exploration/combat/trading game for 3-5 players. Each player takes control of one ship, and can buy upgrades, trade or explore for money and victory points (called fame points) and eventually buy a bigger better ship.

The thing that looks really interesting is how open ended this is, you can win in many different ways, from trading, to piracy, to hunting down pirates for the bounty on them, or just plain exploring space and completing missions you can pick up. Most I imagine will do some combination of these things, but the options seem really intrguing. It strikes me as having a firefly sort of feel to it.

Just received my copy last week. Great game, amazingly re playable.


Clearly I am light-years (6 actually) behind everyone else in Xia-dom, but it is one hell of a good game. I am playing most games (not just Xia!) solo these days (aww!) and Xia, with the "Embers" expansion works so well. Only complaint is that I have restless hands and there's so much to knock over or off the mat in the game.
Great game. "Grab yourself a spaceship and go do your thing!" Why thank you, I will!
