Molly's Last Hope
A tense and fast 2-player tactics game.
Molly's Last Hope is the story of the citizens of the outer planet Molly's Hope and their rebellion against the Confederation. One player commands the Confederation Fleet and its contingent of elite SPIDER troops, the other the rag tag citizens of Molly's Hope.
This game combines clever, fast-paced card play with a simple bluffing battle mechanic inspired by the classic Stratego.
At the Fleet level, players will play a single card on their turns for its Action. Actions will do things like land troops, move them, eliminate enemy units, and so forth. Players can also discard a card to maneuver their fleet, which is crucial as the fleet's current orbit may dictate which cards can be played.
It is crucial that a player maneuvers her Units and fleet perfectly, because when your units collide with the enemy a Battle is fought.
This is the game's other component; Battles! In a battle, players quickly determine which of their numbered chips to use in order to best their opponent. Best your opponent sufficiently enough and you'll earn points that'll put you over the edge to victory.
Molly's Last Hope combines quick tactical combat, clever card play, bluffing, and stylish black and white art to form an ideal game for 2 friends looking to tell a story on the edge of known space. All within your lunch break!
Choose your side and support your cause. Good luck!
