If you are a regular reader here at Board Game Quest, then you should already be familiar with the Pixel Tactics line of games. We’ve previously reviewed Pixel Tactics, and also taken a look at two of the expansion packs. Quick summary: they’re great! Pixel tactics is a creative card game where two players face off in a battle to try to take out each other’s leaders. The entire game is played out in a 3×3 grid with the leader card in the middle. One of my favorite parts of the game is how each card can be used in a variety of different ways.
Level 99 Games is back on Kickstarter now with our newest Kickstarter of the Week: Pixel Tactics Deluxe. This new version is an upgraded edition of the Pixel Tactics game and is also a great jumping in point for new players. My favorite part of the deluxe version? The box now holds everything! One if my biggest gripes with Pixel Tactics has always been that the game box never was able to hold the tokens once punched out. (Yes, I’m anal with my games.)
In this project, we want to print a big starter box for Pixel Tactics, called Pixel Tactics Deluxe! This large box contains everything for two players to play the game: cards, rules, punch tokens, and extra storage space for all the other Pixel Tactics games in print (sleeved or unsleeved)! Designed for both new players and veterans alike, Pixel Tactics Deluxe is a complete game on its own, and also combines with other Pixel Tactics games to form a larger set, with which you can play many of the over 7 new play modes introduced in the game!
If you’d like to become a backer, there are a few pledge levels for you to choose from. If you already have Pixel Tactics and just want the promo cards, then a $5 pledge will get you all the promos. A $35 pledge will get you a copy of Pixel Tactics Deluxe and any stretch goals achieved. Pixel Tactics Deluxe is scheduled to be in backers hands in June of 2015 and you have until Sunday, January 11th to become a backer. So head over today and check it out.
