Tactical Tech is a sci-fi military themed, area control, resource management table top game with chess like mechanics. Has the look and feel of a fast paced sci-fi real-time-strategy video game.
Humankind has advanced dramatically since the industrial revolution of commercialized outer space. With so many living off Earth, a new calendar was created: the Cosmic Almanac System, or “CAS”. The current year is 64 CAS. Legally, there are no governments controlling outer space, only special interest groups called Factions. These Factions are funded by governments and big tech corporations. They have only one purpose: mine the asteroids, by any means necessary...
Factions will either find abandoned mining facility or build new facilities on asteroids. They mine the minerals and sell them to their investors back on Earth in order to buy the latest technologies. They purchase technologies such as military grade 3D printer blueprints, artificial intelligence, advanced weaponry, nanotechnology, tactical body suits and even teleportation.
Greetings Commander, and welcome to Tactical Tech, where players battle each other to control the asteroid mining operations scattered in our solar system. In Tactical Tech, each player controls one of the 4 Factions (Blue Atlantis, Red Dynasty, Green Henge, or White Tepe), and either team up with another player, or go solo in a mission to defeat all opponents.
Starting at your Command, train Units and send them out to occupy new board tiles. Buy Miners to earn more Mineral Cards. Spend Mineral Cards to build up your Faction. Strategize how to destroy your opponents’ Commands. Once all opponents’ Commands have been destroyed, you win the match.
You will be training Fighters, Shooters, and Mechs. Then sending them out to occupy more tiles, defend your assets, and engage in battle with your opponents.
You will be building Miners on nearby blue resource squares so you can earn Mineral Cards. Doing this early on will allow you to purchase much more before engaging in battle.
If properly placed, you can effectively build Barricades, Turrets and Portals to give your Faction an advantage against your opponents.
Purchase Shields to increase hit points on certain pieces.
Get the Advanced Miner upgrade to double the Mineral Cards you earn on a Miner.
BUY RESEARCH CARDS
Collect all 4 Research Cards to increase the number of Units you can activate per turn. Some Research Cards also have added abilities.
FIND SPECIAL CARDS
Hidden in the Mineral Card deck are Special Cards. These cards give you the element of surprise with abilities that manipulate the board.
