Mad Science Foundation - Board Game
Throughout the centuries, mad scientists have always encountered the same problem of very limited access to the dangerous resources require. To solve this problem, the Mad Science Foundation was created. Now, these misunderstood geniuses can finally get the access they need to the four vital building blocks of mad science: Lasers, Dark Matter, Cryptomium, and Sharks.
Unfortunately, for each mad scientist that seeks funding from the Mad Science Foundation, there remains the unfortunate fact of life that mad scientists do not play well with others. In the quest for infamy, directors will be bribed, resources will be reallocated, spies will be dispatched, inventions will be sabotaged and big, impious buttons will be pressed with catastrophic results. Welcome to the Mad Science Foundation, where everyone is ready to stab you in the back with overly-elaborate stabbing machines.
At its heart, this is a drafting game. You draft resources to craft wacky inventions and dispatch minions to help with your diabolical plan. Each round, one player controls the Crooked Director for that round. They then separate the available commodities into piles to be drafted. Not all piles are created equal. Players then take turns selection which pile of goodies they will grab, with the Director’s controller choosing last.
By crafting new inventions, you might be able to put together an engine of cards that evenly fuel themselves. Perpetual motion in our lifetime. Or perhaps you might stockpile valuable resources for later exploitation. It’s all done with the altruistic goals of megalomania and personal glory in mind. What could go wrong?
Please note: The Mad Science Foundation is not responsible for tock market crashes, illegal dumping, or tears in the fabric of space and time.
