In The Paradox Initiative, players are mad scientists competing to claim strands of spacetime from worlds all across the multiverse. Who can most efficiently operate their particle-matching "Paradox Engine" to collect data from the different worlds? Be careful! Your collecting sends ripples throughout existence, collapsing the connections that future generations will need to reap the benefits of your reckless experiments. The Paradox Initiative takes the familiar board game elements of card drafting, set collection, and resource management, then adds a Bejewelled-like grid of discs for each player to manipulate. As a result, The Paradox Initiative is simple to learn, yet challenging to master, with players navigating three interlocking systems to grab as much spacetime as they can to be hailed the greatest scientist in the universe!
