In 2491 Planetship, you are a captain piloting a world-sized planetship, when you receive a distress call from your Mothership. When you arrive, you find the first and largest planetship now crumbling and on the brink of destruction. Captains must assemble their strongest team to rescue those still trapped on the volatile Mothership before it is too late!

2491

2491 Planetship is based on City of Spies: Estoril 1942, and uses many of the same mechanisms in this new fictional world. Location boards are randomly selected and players use their hand of characters to contest control, placing them on open spaces on the board in each of the four rounds. At the end of each round, rewards are given for locations owned. At the end of the fourth round, the player with the most points wins!

2491 Planetship is essentially the same mechanic as City of Spies: Estoril 1942 reskinned, which makes it difficult to understand why it exists at all. Designer Antonio Sousa Lara has said the game feels different than the original, and there are some changes to the rules, so perhaps I'm being too dismissive.

2491 Planetship will be released later in 2019. Keep up to date through the MEBO website.
