A downloadable game

Flexer Upper is a three player table top game about three lady space pirates battling against the clock to repair their ship. The hexaflexagonal engine of their spacecraft is about to fail, so Gwydion, Calliope, and Rebecca must run through the halls of their ship to find extra fuel rods. But even as they rush to repair, the engine room is flipping and rotating in infinite space! Flexer Upper was developed in a 24 hour game jam for Portland Indie Game Squad's March 2017 Table Top Jam.


MECHANICS

Players lay down tiles to create pathways and explore the ship. As they go, players draw item and action cards that range from useful speed boosts to housemasters, space altering door changes.


LAYOUT

Mounted in the center of the ship is the engine. This engine is designed as a hexaflexagon, which intermitantly flips inward on itself, rotates, and locks doors. The player tiles form paths radiating fron the engine room that they can explore. Once they find fuel rods the players must return to the engine room to make repairs, but there's no garantee that the doors will still be unlocked!'
