Hooked on a Feeling!

Far Off Games are rebooting their Xia Kickstarter along with the Xia: Embers of a Forsaken Star expansion and Xia: Missions and Powers 54 card mini-expansion.

Xia is a 1-5 player sandbox-style space adventure that was launched on Kickstarter in 2014. After 4 years on the market, it is now getting a reprint and two expansions, also available on Kickstarter.

Each player starts the game as a captain of a small starship. After flying around, completing missions, exploring new sectors and blasting other starships, your lowly Captains will become legendary.

Because it's a completely open star system, you can mine, salvage or trade valuable cargo in all sorts of hazardous environments. Earn titles, riches and fame for your skills as a ship captain. Endless customisation of your ship and the board it travels on.

In this new Kickstarter, you can get the base game with stretch goals, expansions and miniatures for $145, or just the expansions for $54, or if you're hard-pressed for cash, pay $15 for the mini-expansion on its own. There are also combinations of everything in between.

The Embers of a Forsaken Star expansion includes new sectors, ships, missions and more. There are also new components that allow for solo play and smoother gameplay.

The stretch goals add to this with more sectors, space station and comet miniatures, event, solo play, ability, reference and title cards. Sitting at over $300,000 (£200,000) they have reached all of their announced stretch goals.

In the Missions and Powers 54 card mini-expansion, you will get a box containing rules, 21 new ship abilities, 8 of each of the transport, launder, assist, and BOOM! missions.

This is Far Off Games fourth Kickstarter campaign, which aims to be as successful as the previous 3. The earlier campaigns have all shipped worldwide on time. The games will be distributed via PandaGM.
