Various countries on Earth are trying to conquer the whole thing. There's a bit of a stalemate when the aliens show up. But will everyone set aside their differences and team up against this otherworldly invader or will one try and make peace the the aliens and conquer the world with them? That's up to you to decide in Day of Independence, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Help me make my dream of publishing this game come true.
Day of Independence is a world domination strategy game, set in a steampunky alternative future-past, where humans fight amongst themselves for world domination. However, at some random point in the game Aliens arrive in a huge Mothership. I mean, it is huge: It's a mother of a ship!
Will you stop fighting each other and join together to resist the Alien invasion, or will you suck up to the Aliens to try to get them to help you defeat your human foes... or will you and the rest of the players keep bickering, be outsmarted, and ultimately be exterminated by the Aliens.
The campaign is up and running now and is set to go for another 25 days.
