Raid & Trade: War on the Streets – Live on Kickstarter!

Raid & Trade War on the streets

Raid & Trade expands its legacy and return with the first expansion “War on the Streets”. This time, far from the Golden City comes a new breed of survivors. Forged in the most desolate conditions these opportunistic individuals prowl the ruins watching for people – to either join or exploit. Skilled nomads, these ‘Hitchhikers’ can twist any situation to their advantage. 
Raid & Trade War on the streets minis
1. Expanding the basic game: Part of the Rats Gang and new tiles are added to the basic game, extending it, making it more difficult to reach your victory condition. The combat element of the game has increased thanks to new enemies you will have to fight sent from the other players.
2. New Scenarios: Introduce a co-operative mode. Depending on the number of the players you will use specific miniatures all over the city giving players new objectives such as protecting the Black Market or killing the Commander but this time all players must work together to achieve victory!
3. Hitchhikers: Four new characters with upgraded skills will prove to be very important to the game’s missions, the Hitchhikers.
4. Suburb Tiles: 9 new tiles will be implemented. This time the survivors explore the suburb around the city with new features and surprises. The new tiles include new elements such as toxic waste areas, guarded areas, and underground tunnels that grant instant movement to any part of the city you need to go.
