Update: Hidden Strike: American Revolution launched a little sooner than we thought. It is now live on Kickstarter and the campaign will run for 13 days. You may pledge for a copy of the game or combine it with other solitaire games by Worthington Publishing (Freeman's Farm 1777, 1759 Siege of Quebec etc.).
Our preview post below was published on September 26.
Hidden Strike: American Revolution is a 1-5 player card-driven area control game with 5 different modes of play: solo, co-op, versus, traitor, and 1 vs. many. It will launch on Kickstarter on September 29.
Hidden Strike was first developed as a cooperative game. In this mode, you take on the role of the American colonists and fight for Independence against the British. If you choose to play solo, you gain help from the special ability of a Founding Father. The American side has 3 types of cards it can use: Troop cards that allow you to deploy troops, Fleet cards that let you deploy your fleet, and Event cards that change the state of the board e.g. by moving forces to a different region. The British side only has Troop and Fleet cards.
At the start of each round, you draw a card from the British deck and execute its instructions. Then, you choose one card from your hand of three to play. The goal of the game is to control the most regions. No fights are taking place: the point is to conquer an area first by having the most units in it.
