Update: Maquis has launched on Kickstarter and the campaign will run for 24 days. If you already have Maquis, you can pledge for just the new content. Otherwise, you may go for the full 2nd edition of the game.
Our preview post below was published on January 27.
Maquis, the solitaire worker placement game in which you control agents of the french Resistance in WWII, will hit Kickstarter on February 1 for a reprint campaign and the addition of extra content.
The new edition will come with 4 new missions (likely tarot card size), new locations and resources. Owners of the first edition will be able to pledge just for the new content.
In Maquis, you first select 2 missions to set the objectives for your current session (e.g. deliver items to certain locations, bomb a bridge etc.). You shuffle the patrol deck, and start with 2 workers in your safe house (you can recruit more later). Your morale level starts at 6 but goes down as time goes by.
Each location on the board offers different benefits or resources. On each turn, you will send your workers in the locations of your choice, and then draw cards from the patrol deck that tell you where to place the policemen. A policeman will follow specific placement rules and may end up arresting your workers, thus removing them from the game.
You lose if all your workers have been arrested, or if morale goes down to zero, or if you reach the final round without having completed your mission objectives.
