This week’s Kickstarter Spotlight is Visions, a game about a family troubled by a curse which the players, as ‘visionaries’, must resolve by connecting elements of the families past to gain the mental influence to overcome it. Players collect sets of time cards and play them on the board in order to link the family cards around it to the centre of the playing area. Doing so allows them to claim rewards that increase visionary energy, which opens up one-time bonuses such as playing fewer time cards, and vision stones, which are used to complete personal and master visions.
While I’m not a huge fan of the overall aesthetic and the manual certainly needs some work on the translation, the interesting theme and unique but simple game play mechanics are certainly very attractive as is the play mat that comes with the deluxe edition.
Well worth checking out!
