Can you capture the feel of the video game in a tabletop game?
6: Siege – The Board Game is an asymmetrical shooter for 2-4 players... and it's on Kickstarter now!
As you can probably tell from the name, the game is based on Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Siege, with some familiar faces and mechanisms throughout. Players will select their operators for one of three missions and must complete their actions to time – as per a specialist app, forcing quicker decisions and higher tensions.
We were able to take a look at a pre-Kickstarter edition of the videogame-turned-board-game, so see below for Charlie's (excited) take on the game, and find out a little more about how it works, and what you'll be able to expect. Check that out below, and let us know your thoughts!
An excerpt from its description reads as follows: "Gameplay is fast and frenetic, allowing players to feel the tension of a cinematic assault with simulated real-time gameplay. Players control a team of 5 operators (all attackers or all defenders), with each Operator boasting different gadgets and abilities. Building your team of 5 is a very rewarding step of the game, offering endless possibilities and strategic choices. As the attacker, you will use your explosive arsenal to tear down walls and obstacles to reach your objective! As the defender, you will shape the battleground to your advantage and seek to thwart your opponent’s plans by denying them chances to attack."
This is an early copy, so we're not quite doing an unboxing, but Charlie will give you a look at what you might find inside, alongside some of the fun aspects of the rules and game play in general. Bear in mind of course, that at this stage, some things may change.
Let us know your thoughts! You can check it out for yourself over on Kickstarter.
