Black Hole Council is a negotiation and deduction game about deciding the fates of 32 different planets. As a shady member of the Council, you have a secret Agenda for each kind of planet. Your goal is to negotiate for your Agenda so that you can gain influence and become the new Senior Councilor. If you can deduce your rivals’ goals, you’ve got an even better chance to block their plans and dominate the negotiations. So what if you have to toss a few planets into the black hole along the way?
Orange Machine Games was created by Don Eskridge, designer of The Resistance, Avalon, and Abandon Planet. In 2017 we Kickstarted Abandon Planet and fully delivered to Backers that August. That was a fantastic experience, and now we’re excited for this new project! If the idea of negotiating the fate of planets, bluffing your goals and blocking others’ plans sounds fun to you, then this is your space jam. Black Hole Council is the 4-8 player party game for gamers that rewards cunning and manipulation as much as clever deduction and tactical card play.
