We are delighted to help kickstart this game (not only have we kickstarted this but we are one of the corporations in the game!)
A lightweight worker-placement Boardgame for 1-5 Players in 30-45 minutes! Assemble a crew & mine metal-rich asteroids in deep space!!
In Darkrock Ventures, each player is in control of their very own small, independent, deep-space asteroid mining ship and a skeleton crew. Each mining venture will receive corporates ponsorship throught the Darkrock Ventrues Deep-Space mining consortium andwill be given its own unique advantages as they set out on their task of extracting as muhc of the valuable metal ore from the asteroid as they can in the shortest amount of time possible. (there are other companies working against you afterall)
The core of Darkrock Ventures runs on a very clever "shared dice" mechanism; players will be rolling their own special Mining Rig Dice and pairing one of them with one of the three standard shared dice in the middle of the board. When one of your dice plus one of the shared dice make one of the totals shown on the various mining sites on the board, you are able to collect that resource ... but only if you have assigned a worker there beforehand or manage to move one of your crew members there mid-round.
