Escape from Flat Earth!
Your ship marooned on a strange, flat planet. The crew sent out in search of vital resources. Lethal dangers found at every turn. Can anyone…
What is Escape from Flat Earth?
Having joined the Red Suits, you and others dressed in potentially fatal fashion have formed Away Teams and are already beaming down to the Flat Planet. As Events are revealed that combine to create a mission timeline, it is now up to each of you to take Actions in the hope that you will be the one to land a Red Suit on the final Event. Do this and earn yourself a promotion out of the Red Suits and into a colour that’s not only flattering… but also comes with a much higher life expectancy.
Or, you could be the only Red Suit left alive, as the planet is fraught with potentially deadly Attacks. You don’t want to be going home in carbonite, do you? Then you’d better keep a Teleport close at hand.
A card game for those of us who know better than to step onto an alien planet while dressed in red. And especially for those who don’t.
Congratulations on becoming a Red Suit – it’s a job for life!
Where did the game come from?
EFFE (Escape from Flat Earth) did not start in the conventional way most games do. Usually, you make the game and then box it. With EFFE it was the other way round. The box was the original idea, just to see if it would work. Being a massive sci-fi fans, the box was inspired to work like a communicator – flip open and reveal the cards and instructions.
From there it grew through playtests and community sharing alongside regular Wednesday meetups in a very average burger bar as a narrative building sci-fi spoofing card game was created and has now been successfully funded on kickstarter.
It goes to prove anything can inspire you to start a game, there’s no hard or fast rules, just the joy of making something you love to share!
So, to those who have supported the game, we say good luck, Red Suit. You will be missed.
