A new Snap Ships tabletop game is in the works from PlayMonster.
The company and its design partner Lynnvander Studios are developing Snap Ships Tactics, a constructible, expandable, multiplayer battle game where players create custom Snap Ships and bring them to life on a tabletop battlefield.
“We’ve long dreamed of a tabletop game with fully customizable, modular miniatures where every model you play with reflects the unique abilities of the ship or mech you’re piloting,” said Scott Pease and Jeff Swenty, co-inventors of Snap Ships. “With Snap Ships Tactics we can finally make that vision come to life.”
At Gen Con 2021 — taking place September 16-19 — PlayMonster and Lynnvander Studios will offer visitors a sneak peek and a chance to play an early version of the game; attendees will also have an opportunity to preview Wave 3 ships ahead of their fall release.
Snap Ships Tactics will be the first tabletop offering from the Snap Ships brand. Following the preview at Gen Con, a Kickstarter campaign is planned for 2022, where fans will be invited to influence the final game design and receive teasers and Snap Ships exclusives along the way.
“Snap Ships has been an award-winning, consumer-favorite since we launched, so we wanted to reward those fans with a transformative game that fuses build-to-battle components with the idea of expansion,” said Scott Flynn, VP sales and marketing at PlayMonster. “The innovative game mechanics designed by Lynnvander fully capitalize on the unique aspects of the Snap Ships universe. We can’t wait to share more about it with Snap Ships fans.”
Fans can stay up-to-date on the campaign, product arrivals, and other news via the email list.
“Snap Ships is a fun toy line my kids and I have enjoyed for some time now. It is truly an immersive play experience that has wide appeal,” said Thomas Gofton of Lynnvander Studios. “We’re excited to partner with PlayMonster and the great team behind Snap Ships, to take this world to the next level with Snap Ships Tactics. We can’t wait to see what unique builds players will create from this game.”
