Release Date: June 2017, Number of Players: 1-4, Game Length: 30-45 minutes

From Renegade Game Studios:

Flip Ships is a cooperative dexterity game where players take on the roles of brave pilots defending their planet from an onslaught of firepower. Flip your ships to take out the encroaching enemies, and to take down the powerful mother ship before it’s too late.

There are so many reasons to be excited about Flip Ships. First, this is from the same designer who made FUSE, which is a real-time co-op dexterity game that my group really enjoys playing. Secondly, the publisher, Renegade Game Studios, has been putting out hit after hit recently, including the extremely popular Clank.

Based on what designer Kane Klenko said over at BGG, you will be flipping discs (your ships) toward enemy ships, attempting to destroy them. Those enemy ships will keep coming towards you and attacking your team if you don’t take them out. Klenko says that it’s like a “dexterity Space Invaders/Galaga, or tower defense game.”

My group loves cooperative dexterity games (we’ve been playing a lot of Dungeon Fighter), so this is right up our alley. I can’t wait to see the artwork on the board and discs.

You can preorder Flip Ships at CoolStuffInc. (when available) or head on over to the official page for a bit more info on the game.
