The first game in a planned Star Scrappers series, Cave-in is a game for 2 to 4 players, competing to mine Hexis crystals. The goal of the game is to get as many victory points as possible before the crystal mine collapses. As a mining boss, you will have to recruit new mercenary laborers, use their skills, and collect precious artifacts. Never let your guard down though, as your competition is waiting for a chance to buy off your trusted men and steal the bounty from under your nose!
Star Scrappers: Cave-in introduces unique game mechanics called “discard building”. With every action taken, players put their mercenaries into their discard piles. The order of the discarded cards matters, because your top card is your Leader and gives you a special action at the beginning of your next turn. Beware, if your discard grows too much, it will draw the attention of other players who will not hesitate to steal cards from you – they’ll be bribing your own men!
