Set in a grim future, Farsight immerses players in a world where powerful Private Military Corporations fight viciously over the Earth’s last remaining resources.
Developed over 8 years, Farsight is an attempt to bring in-depth wargaming to the table in a way that is elegant, accessible, and easy to engage with.
Each turn, players deploy units face-down to the battlefield, revealing them when they are spied upon, or enter combat. On a parallel ‘Shadow Map,’ hidden specialists are deployed to help spy on the enemy, sabotage their units and help shift the course of the game.
As the corporations battle for control of the field, events ranging from weather to deadly plagues will encourage players to change their strategies as the game goes on. The first player to capture 8 of 12 areas, or the 3 areas closest to their opponent, claims victory.
