Default Shifts. A single player strategy board game for Ipad



WHAT IS SHIFTS?
Shifts is a turn-based strategy game set in a desolate universe. You play the Captain of a ship fleeing a dying Earth. Lost in space with the last five humans in the entire universe, it’s up to you to guide them through the stars. Find habitable planets and colonize them with creation engines before your nanovirus-infected Arkship self-destructs. With strategy and luck you'll find a new home for humanity.

MAN-UP, WISE-UP TACTICS
Chances are, space will get you killed. Make smart tactical decisions and you just might save the human race. Play recklessly and humanity dies with you.



RESOURCE MANAGEMENT CRAZINESS
Your ship's artificial intelligence just might go insane. The thruster reactors leak and the hull is cracking from the stress of intergalactic flight. Your robots need constant maintenance, and pesky nanobots are trying to corrupt the creation engines and break the ship apart. Manage your resources carefully or there's no tomorrow.



SYMBIOTIC CREW = SUPER POWERS
Every member of your crew has been engineered to give the arkship a special power. Activate those powers by connecting crew to the ship's artificial intelligence (interfacing).



YOU'RE ON SHIFT!
Assign non-interfaced crew to shifts. Every crew member is armed with a different speciality to deal with the arkship's growing list of problems. Decide who's on shift and when to keep the arkship from falling apart. But be warned, your symbiotic crew members will grow fatigued if you keep them from interfacing with the artificial intelligence for too long.

RANDOM MAP GOODNESS
Look, space is a very big place. There's no reason to play (or die) in the same place twice.

I bought this game a while ago!

It is very good, one of my favorites solitaire board game!

But I want an expansion or something, this game seems to be very expandable!

They want to know what you were looking for in an expansion. officers to choose from at the start of the game so you can pick your team? Different ships with different pros and cons?
More food for thought is always appreciated.

The eventual multiplayer deal where we have a hand of hazards we can play on the opponents would be neat but for the more immediate future:

MORE Officers with unique abilities.
MORE Ships with unique pros/cons.
MORE Planet encounter effects.

Easier said than done but something I'd gladly pay cash money for!

The game looks neat, but all I can think is how the team on the title screen totally looks like most of the old Marvel Comics' Generation X team from 1994: Jubilee, Penance, Synch, M, and Husk's brother Cannonball.

..good lord, I'm a dork.

All of the officer's cool abilities only kick in when NOT on shift (i.e. working the computers) but the nasty irony is that they can only solve crises in their field of expertise if actively on shift.
