Hi board game geeks! My name’s Doddy and I’m here to help you ‘kickstart’ your game collection by navigating the choppy waters of crowdfunding campaigns! I’ll be looking at which deserve your gold and which you should avoid like an Orc encampment! On today’s edition we’ll be looking at Solar Storm by Dranda Games.
Dranda games have brought us a MASSIVE game in a tiny box!! 1-4 players will work together in this cooperative game, no backstabbing, in this game of survival. You will have to repair the ship as a united crew to save yourself from the fire pit of doom.
Follow the simple actions and dice right in. Time is not your ally, things will go wrong, and who has the spanner!!! Prepare your turns well, don’t waste your actions and use them wisely. Ensure you take your turn because there will be one player who will say do this and then this. Make sure you have fun. You can even divert power through damaged parts of the ship to the energy core and win the game!! Oops forgot to say, the ship will continue to take damage over and over until you escape the clutches of fire and death. So it is a perfect time to panic and split up, there’s not like an alien aboard as well ????. There isn’t an alien… I think.
This game combines a huge amount of strategy and lets face it Lady Luck is not with you on this. More like the creeping thought of imminent doom approaches. Then add on top that this game has difficulty levels. Oh my lord you can set the danger level!!! Collect resources and spend them to repair the ship to keep you alive or you can just keep collecting resources which are vital to your survival in the long run. Choices, yes they are your downfall in this game. To win just transfer power from 8 parts of the ship and you’ll be fine. Too much damage to the ship and you’ll be bbq humans in a Solar Storm of fun.
No two games will be the same, there’s enough in the box to add variety. It’s transportable as well, from the image above it’s tiny, small box with epic gaming and playing. The game includes a solo mode which will be a sweat/panic induced game that you’ll probably need a holiday afterwards.
