Gridopolis takes board games to a whole new level... literally. Not content with just 2 axis, they've got for 3. In it, players are looking to build, move, or modify the ever-growing structure. It's like checkers, but with a 3D, modular, changeable board. Will you be the last one with pieces on the structure? The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Gridopolis is an innovative and award-winning 3D strategy game that is ALSO a flexible and extendable game system. The amount it flexes or extends is up to you. Use any of our published blueprints (up to three and counting) to build your grid-set and start the game. The same rules apply to any configuration of grid-set. There is nothing else like it!
Gridopolis is simple and fun to learn. We use rules you probably already know from classic games like checkers, chess, and even tic-tac-toe. Except we are now playing in three dimensions! In those other games, you might have one or two possible moves with each piece. In Gridopolis, you can easily have more than ten places to move a single piece!
The system is modular. There are only seven total parts. Just three are needed to build your 3D board, known as the ‘grid-set.’ You then play in three dimensions. This ability is a major innovation in tabletop games.
The game is dynamic. Each player gets extra parts at the beginning of a game. During the game, you can either move or build. That means the grid-set expands (and contracts) during gameplay! The grid-set you start with is not the grid-set you end up with. It's another innovation.
The game's a bit more than 1/3 of the way to its goal with 28 days left to go.
