We are in June 2471 (2 thousand 4 hundred seventy 1), on an arid Earth and kerosene – called simply KERO - is scarce. Two clans are struggling to survive, exploring New Territories in their tanker trucks. Yet running out of fuel is a risk!
Kero is a two-player game set in a future unfriendly world in which your ability to survive is based on how much kerosene and resources you can find and on how you use wisely them.
You will be the leader of 1 clan, managing your camp, your tanker truck (sandtimer about sixty seconds) and 7 Explorers. Players compete for the same cards and territories. Your goal is to collect as many resources as possible while using as little as possible of the KERO in your tanker truck. Roll the dice, avoid fires, collect your resources. Then use them for upgrading your camp by taking cards and sending out Explorers to claim New Territories. Claim any territories in which you have a majority at the end of each of the 3 rounds of the game.
