Free Radicals, a Futuristic Game of Knowledge and Influence!

Free Radicals

WizKids has announced the upcoming release of Free Radicals, a futuristic game of knowledge and influence!

In Free Radicals, each player takes control of one of the ten fully asymmetrical factions that make up the interconnected community of Sphere City, a thriving community built underneath The Sphere. Each faction has its own mechanics, goals, themes, and challenges, but all make use of the same core data cards, favor system, and Sphere research tracks. Throughout the game, players will also be able to assist other factions in their research, earning them favor and additional rewards, while hopefully not helping too much! 

Each faction provides different themes and challenges. They include:

  • Farmers – Use domino-style tiles to plant crops in your vertical farm, and feed the city efficiently as possible!
  • Couriers – Use your drones to pick up and deliver goods to various locations around the city. Time your deliveries carefully, as values are always changing!
  • Artisans – Make technology beautiful! You’ll use the Data Cards that the Sphere provides as tools to create intricate Hardlight Constructs!

Over the course of 12 rounds, each player gathers Resources, Data, and Credits, advancing their Knowledge, gaining Favor, and Awakening the Free Radicals! Each player’s turn sequence will look different based on the selected faction, but each will be working towards the goal of leading humanity into its next stage.

By the end of the game, the player with the most victory points wins the game and will lead The Sphere into a bold new future! Pre-order Free Radicals from your Friendly Local Game Store today!
