Press Information for Mitropia

Launching April 16th

Mitropia is a thematic strategy game in which you play one of five tribes called to the fields of the Gods. Once there, you conjure warriors on the field to capture territory and try surround your opponents, just as they try to do the same to you. Play takes place on map that changes every time you play. Making moves involves bold strategic thinking, good tactics and the judicious use of luck in the form of magical special move cards. Can you triumph at the mythical game of surrounding?

Game Origins

Mitropia started out as a curious attempt to create a multiplayer version of the game of Go. From there it quickly morphed into a themed strategy game that used the underlying Go gameplay as the core playing mechanic. The theme also created the means to add some randomness, special moves, and surprises to the gameplay. This makes the game more engaging and accessible to casual players.

By 2019, the core mechanics had really come together and Mitropia got its first previews at GenCon and Spiel Essen where the team did hundreds of playtests (and many since!). The enthusiasm made it clear the game was worth launching but the comments also lead to a wide range of refinements (detailed here) which will all come to the Kickstarter campaign.

Kickstarter Information

The Kickstarter campaign will launch on April 16th, 2020 and run until May 16th, 2020. It is possible we’ll make use of the additional Kickstarter 7-day extension if required. 

We recognize it is a tough time to launch given the ongoing global virus crisis. However, we decided to try to proceed anyway since this gives us the best chance of delivering the game in the Fall or 2020. Hopefully the game will bring some happiness to a few people in that timeframe. In order to try to make this easy, we will have a $1 reward level and keep the pledge manager open as long as possible. We’ve also squeezed the price down as much as we can.

We will also be releasing a Tabletopia version online play during the campaign to also be accessible to people in self isolation.
