Wishlists

When the first exploration vessels entered the cloudy atmosphere of the planet Magnastorm, they discovered not only evidence of abundant natural resources, but also the remains of a long-lost civilization. At the bidding of the magistracy, scout vehicles are lowered to the barren surface to search for suitable mining areas.

The goal of Magnastorm is to be the first player with a certain number of reputation points. You acquire reputation mostly through fulfilling objectives, taking control of one or more of the eight commanders, and building transmitter stations. The flow of the game is controlled by an action board with two action panels, each of which has five columns. At the start of each round, there are a 3-5 action tokens (crew members) standing in each column on the upper action panel. To carry out an action, a player:

A) takes an action token from the upper panel and places it on the lower action panel either to gain resources or to pay for a movement on the planet surface, or
B) pays for every action token still standing in a certain column on the upper panel to gain control over the commander and his ability at the top of that panel, after which the player places those action tokens on the lower panel.

Since option A) will reduce the cost for option B), the players have to find the right timing for their actions. A round ends when the upper panel is empty. For the next round, the panels are swapped.

Magnastorm is a big, tactical board game with very little luck. Choose the right moment to perform actions or buy influence over helpful commanders. You will reap success through resource management, clever logistics, good timing, and a shrewd eye on the actions of your opponents. At the end of the game, each player receives one of 120 reward cards, which can be used in later games to compensate for varying levels of skill among the players.

    5/5

    Le truc le plus génial dans Magnastorm est ce que j’appelle « les objectifs sacrificiels ». L’objectif du jeu est d’être le premier à atteindre 27 points. Quand vous atteignez 27 points, le jeu s’arrête immédiatement et vous remportez la partie à quelques menus détails près. Vous aurez l’occasion de gagner quelques points ici ou là durant la partie mais l’essentiel des PVs proviendront de la réussite des 4 objectifs tirés au sort lors de la mise en place de la partie. Le premier à atteindre un de ces objectifs gagnera 5 PVs, le second 4, le troisième 3,… Là aussi vous devrez vous battre contre vos adversaires pour chopper les objectifs avant eux. Mais ce n’est pas tout! Ces objectifs sont « sacrificiels ». Pour les atteindre il faudra faire des sacrifices: diminuer drastiquement sur les échelles de majorité, perdre des robots sur le plateau,… Quand vous réaliserez un des objectifs, vous allez aussi perdre beaucoup que ce soit sur le plateau ou sur les échelles de majorité. Autant bien choisir son moment, ni trop tôt, ni trop tard…

    Magnastorm n’est néanmoins pas exempt de défaut. Il ne permet qu’une faible montée en puissance et est assez dirigé. On va tous fuir la tempête en essayant d’aller le plus loin possible vers le beau temps tout en se battant pour les mêmes majorités. Malgré ça, on est plongé dans le jeu du début à la fin du jeu. Chaque choix a ses conséquences et aucun n’est à prendre à la légère. La tension est partout dans le jeu, autant sur les majorités, sur le terrain, sur la gestion des ressources que sur la course aux objectifs. On ne sort pas indemne d’une telle tempête!
