DeltaV Kickstarter Preview and Production Update Zero

On October 20, the Kickstarter for the three dimensional board game ΔV will be open for pledges, and will remain open for 42 days. I created ΔV with a friend of mine, Bryan Curtis. Our goals were originally development of a mobile game, but I was so happy with it as a board game, I decided it must be produced. ΔV is the game of spatial combat. Play occurs in the three dimensional version of a checkerboard. Until October 20, feel free to preview it and leave feedback
