APRIL 1, 2011 — Glory Games is proud to announce the release of their biggest historical miniature game yet: BIG BANG. “BIG BANG: The Miniatures Game” is an exciting new tabletop experience that lets players battle for control of the universe from the very beginning!
Covering the period of history from the creation of time itself to the first full second of existence, BIG BANG is a miniature game like no other. Players field armies of quarks, electrons and protons in an epic clash to form the first atoms, and stand against the hordes of encroaching Dark Matter.
BIG BANG: The Miniatures Game (BB:TMG) comes ready to play out of the box, with gorgeous pre-painted figures. In addition, all of the units in the basic game can be combined to form larger units in later scenarios.
The starter set comes with figures representing electrons, all six types of quarks, and the mysterious “dark matter” — enough for two players to game the earliest events of the big bang, from 10-32 to 10-6 seconds. Later sets will include additional exotic particles, including neutrinos, pions, and quite possibly the ultra-rare Higgs Boson.
The 596-page rule book, with an introduction by physicist Brian Greene, also has options for playing in 10 or 11 dimensions, so both fans of superstring theory and M-Theory branes can face off against one another.
“What we are truly excited about with this game is scale,” said designer JP Trostle. “The introductory scenario is played on a 1-to-1 basis, about a foot across, which was the actual size of the universe a fraction of a second after inflation — yet you can fit the whole thing in your pocket when you’re done.”
“Best of all, BIG BANG is infinitely scalable, and will eventually include every game ever made,” he added. “We’re already working on a collectible card version, and, of course, a live action role-playing game.”
