Resistor_, designed by Nicole Kline and Anthony Amato, is a two-player game where players take on the roles of opposing computers trying to hack each other's network to drop the other to Defcon 1. The game is played in turns consisting of the same 3 actions though the order of those actions may differ from turn to turn. A player wants to connect his or her colored circuits in a continuous line to score a hit, while keeping other player from being able to do the same. Because the cards are double-sided, the game comes with a neat box setup that allows for the deck to stand without giving any information away prior to a drawing a card.

Our discussion focused on the unique features of Resistor_ like its card play, graphic design, and box construction. We learned that Level 99 approached Cardboard Fortress (Nicole and Anthony) after their Kickstarter was successful, which is why the game is published through Level 99.

If you wish to learn more about this game or to pick up a copy, please visit Cardboard Fortress or Level99games.com respectively.
