“Home of the Brave” was an idea of one man but it couldn't have come to life without the help of others. Soon, the team of four people was working on the concepts, mechanics and the story behind the game.
We are a small team of professional enthusiasts/enthusiastic professionals (depending on the circumstances) based in Warsaw, Poland. We hope to create our own company producing innovative, complex tabletop gaming experiences.
Home of the Brave is a game for 2-5 players, full of negotiation, blackmail, alliances and scandals. Each player will compete for influence, advance their professional position, gain powerful supporters and affect the United States politics - all to achieve their private goals and thus win the game.
Choose from five playable characters, each with a different set of cards (journalist, businessman, republican, democrat and gangster). Gather your supporters and collect money to influence the situation in five domains – media, business, social activism, politics and the criminal underworld. Negotiate, make alliances and gain trust, but remember – everyone is haunted by the demons of the past… and you can use that advantage for your own purposes. Vote on random political/social events, but watch out for lobbyists – consider their opinion or suffer the consequences.
The idea for "Home of the Brave" was born from the desire to create a game that would accurately represent complicated social and psychological aspects of the world of politics. The core concept was to blend re-playable board game mechanics with intriguing and intense storytelling. Before playing you can dive into the world of the game by reading 18-page novella that comes with the box. All of the in-game character’s choices are the reflections of player’s actions and decisions. The illustrations on the cards are strongly influenced by the courtroom sketches, by which we hope to achieve a unique style and create original narration.
We are proud to say that the effect of our hard work is a functional prototype which we hope to turn into a fully-fledged board game with the help of our backers.
We plan on launching our Kickstarter campaign on Thursday, March 22nd, 2018. Hope to see you there!
